As anyone who struggles personally with problematic drug and alcohol misuse knows, what we see on TV and the internet is often far from reality. The media flits between positive and negative portrayals of drug and alcohol misuse regularly, at times drawing people towards addiction and at others instilling in them harmful stigmas that lead us to suffer in silence when we really should speak up and seek help.
London Dayhab Help Me Stop has now launched an online treatment service for people struggling with drug and alcohol problems. It will deliver intensive treatment for existing clients unable to leave their homes during the COVID-19 crisis and new clients who wish to take advantage of this option, both now and in the future.
For many, problematic drug and alcohol use and addiction are diseases that live in loneliness. As dependency on and abuse of drugs and alcohol worsens, important areas of our lives are steadily dropped as dependence takes hold. This cycle can be broken, however, and a better life can be achieved.
