“When I first came to see Mark I did not know how to stop my addictions. He listened when I needed him to and encouraged me when I had little motivation to change. Because of Mark my life is better than it has ever been.”
Drug Addiction and Drug Dependency are progressive mental health conditions and can be fatal. I have had my own battle with drug addiction and alcoholism, and I have seen many people close to me die from drug overdoses, poor health, and putting themselves in dangerous situations due to addiction. I am now over sixteen years clean and have spent that time helping hundreds of sufferers to overcome their chemical and behavioural addictions and live a new life.
What is drug addiction?
There are the obvious drugs that make the list when people think of drug addiction, cocaine, ketamine, ecstasy, hash, heroin, and more. A major silent killer in the UK, second most deadly behind heroin, is Over the Counter (OTC) and Prescription Only Medication (POM) abuse. The reason it is a silent killer is because these medications are available in stores and prescribed by doctors, many people don’t think something legal can be addictive and deadly. What ever the substance(s), if you are unable to control your use and have needed more and more to get high or get pain relief, then you should get in touch to discuss what we can do to get you the help you need.
