You Are Not Alone

Thought: ‘“We admitted” – so I am not alone.’

Addictions UK uses Twitter to share inspirational Thoughts every day. This article is based on one of them. Follow us at @addictionsuk.

“We admitted we were powerless over addiction – that our lives had become unmanageable,” is the First Step of the Twelve Steps to recovery, the one without which no progress can be made.

Your addiction is not unique. Millions before you have had to confront the reality of a life out of control. Each one has had to face the simple and obvious conclusion that, if you cannot manage your life, you need help from outside, from a Higher Power, from friends, from family, from others who are in recovery.

Addictions UK was established by a group of recovering addicts, alcoholics and carers and run by recovering addicts with good clean time. All treatment and support staff are also recovering addicts with excellent clean time. This helps us to remain client focused – offering shared hope, strength and experience.

Like most organisations that help people to recover from addiction we offer the understanding, support and leadership of people who “have been there”, who understand how hard it is and whose lives demonstrate the possibility for progress.

What makes Addictions UK different from others is our experience and focus on home-based treatment, enabling you to continue at work and to remain in the supportive environment of family and friendship as you begin and progress through recovery.

If you are ready to join the many who have admitted we were powerless over addiction – that our lives had become unmanageable and think we may be able to help you, please contact us now.
