Dave came to Help Me Stop Dayhab in June 2021 for alcohol treatment. In this audio blog, he speaks about the extraordinary impact of alcohol recovery on his relationships, particularly with his 4-year-old daughter.
Dermot Murnaghan speaks to former Help Me Stop clients, Anne and Chris, about their alcohol addiction and recovery. Chris Love tackles the myth of the ‘functioning alcoholic’.
The majority of people that Help Me Stop work with haven’t yet lost everything: they have jobs, families, homes and opportunities. But alcohol addiction is making their life increasingly difficult, unmanageable and painful. In Alcohol Awareness Week, our Director of Admissions spoke to G B News about alcohol addiction, treatment and recovery.
‘My relationship with alcohol had become very destructive. It was all-consuming. Although I had boundaries, a 6pm start, I was obsessed with it getting to 6 o’ clock, obsessed with making sure there was wine in the fridge and another bottle to follow…’
In a new series of videos from Help Me Stop, our former clients speak about what they are most proud of in their addiction recovery and how their life is different today.
‘Arriving in treatment, I think I share the same experience that most people have. I thought that nobody here would understand my problems, but very quickly, I came to understand that the problems I have were shared with everyone here.’
It’s common for people to have fears about what addiction treatment will be like. Yet most of our clients are surprised about how warm and welcoming it is. Listen to Dave speak about the misconceptions he had before arriving in our London Dayhab and how that changed after he started.
