Drug misuse

If you have a problem with drugs, we can help you find your pathway to recovery. Recovery means different things to different people, for some it's reducing drug use and for others it's stopping taking drugs completely.

People take drugs for different reasons:

  • to experiment and try drugs out of curiosity
  • because the people around them are doing it
  • an attempt to escape from problems in their lives
  • a way of trying to deal with physical and emotional pain

Drug misuse can be harmful to your health in both the short term and the long term, and can lead to addiction.

There's a fine line between occasionally using drugs and becoming dependent on them. It can become difficult to realise when you’ve crossed that line, but we can help you at any point.
