Here at Help Me Stop, we believe that problematic alcohol and drug use and addiction treatment should be available to you wherever you are. As such, we have been running our online treatment programme and replicating the great outcome results that academic studies from the likes of Yale & Zurich have found when reviewing this model of treatment.
Online drug and alcohol treatment is nothing new, it’s been running successfully in places like the USA for over a decade so why not take advantage of it now its here in the UK?
Our drug and alcohol addiction treatment offers online sessions in the evenings and mornings, making it easy to fit around work and other commitments.
The successful drug and alcohol addiction treatment methods are delivered by an expert team of addiction psychotherapists who specialise in a wide array of recovery techniques. Our sessions are delivered as online group therapy, interactive lectures, mindfulness sessions and 1 to 1 psychotherapy tailored deal with the underlying reasons for your drug or alcohol use as well as your use itself.
As we all know we are still in the grips of COVID-19. Bereavement, isolation, loss of income and fear are triggering mental health conditions or exacerbating existing ones often leading to drink and drugs to cope. And with COVID-19 keeping many of us still working from home, or under the banner of furlough online treatment is ideal.
Help Me Stop’s online programme not only addresses the drink and drug use it also addresses the underlaying causes such as depression, low self-esteem, stress and anxiety. If you are drinking more than six pints of average strength beer or six 175ml glasses of average strength wine a week then there are going to be some physical and mental health risks. The more you are drinking outside of this the higher the risk.
There are no safe levels of drug use so any use, even the smallest, will create some physical and mental health risks.
Help Me Stop’s intensive non-residential online programme is an effective solution that also offers 12 months of free accessible aftercare and family support options.
If you would like to learn more about why you, or someone you care about, keeps relapsing or your alcohol and drug use is getting out of control and you want to do something about it then call us now on 0208 191 9174 or jump onto Live Chat/email us directly at https://helpmestop.org.uk/contact-us
