Addiction treatment options

When people describe themselves as addicted to alcohol or addicted to drugs, they usually mean they believe they have lost control of how much they take and how often they take it.

Treatment offers various routes for people dependent on drink or dependent on drugs to regain control of their lives.

To get the best possible advice on which style of treatment is most likely to help, there needs to be an assessment. Most treatment centres offer a confidential initial assessment free of obligation.

This is because treatments designed to meet the particular needs, preferences and aspirations of the person seeking help have been shown, time after time, to be the most successful.

For those people who prefer to remain anonymous, completing online questionnaires can be a very helpful way of identifying the extent of the problem. Some also offer guidance about the most effective ways of dealing with it.
