Welcome! This is a support website for people with addiction problems. We provide information and advice that can help you cope with addiction and regain control of your life. Remember: no matter what stage you are in, it is always possible to beat your addiction!
Addiction is commonly associated with substance abuse, but behavioural addictions like gambling are just as serious. Both types of addiction result in dependency and have similar negative consequences. Addiction causes serious problems to your physical and mental health, as well as to the physical and mental health of your loved ones. Moreover, addiction may negatively influence your life through job loss, it may lead to financial disaster, or it may bring your personal relationships to ruins.
Nevertheless, with the right treatment, addiction can be overcome successfully! Tips that you will find on our website can help you along the way. Information we provide are meant to help you recognise the problem, make a plan for quitting, seek help and prepare yourself for obstacles you will encounter. We provide tips on how to recognise signs of addiction and on steps, you should take if you think you have an addiction problem. We also offer guides to addiction recovery for various types of addictions, information on how to find a recovery clinic and self-help techniques that can strengthen your confidence and help you deal with stress in a healthy way. Most of the time, emotional problems are at the root of the addictive behaviour. We also offer advice to help you cope with these deeper issues, such as depression, bipolar disorder or anxiety.
There are many effective treatments for addiction problems, usually including some combination of talk therapy and medications. We offer an overview of rehab treatment options, as well as advice on how to pick the one that is best for you. Keep in mind that substance abuse treatment at a professional rehab facility can help one regain health and begin to overcome addiction. Those who undergo treatment are much more likely to achieve and maintain sobriety than those who do not. It is essential to follow detox with further treatment, such as inpatient or outpatient treatment, talk therapy, self-help meetings, and medications prescribed by your doctor.
We also offer advice for friends and family who suspect that a person close to them is addicted. Once addiction has taken hold, your friend or family member will need your support, love and compassion to deal with the problem. However, you might also need support yourself to stay strong and be there for them through the hard times.
Our mission is to show you that there are things you can do and treatments that can help you get your life back on track. If you want to learn how to kick the bad habit and start living life to the fullest again, you are at the right place. There is hope because, with support, self-help and treatment, you can beat addiction and reclaim your life!
