“Stopping is easy, staying stopped is hard.” (Alcoholics Anonymous Member)
Many people are tempted to cease treatment earlier than is wise. Having successfully stopped drinking, taking drugs or engaging in harmful behaviour, they want to move on with their lives. This is natural, but they forget that addiction is a chronic and progressive illness that has no permanent cure or fix.
Addictions UK offers clients customised “relapse prevention” after completion of their agreed recovery programme. This can take the form of extended coaching or counselling sessions, introduction to peer-mentoring groups and access to a 24/7 helpline and are designed to ensure that recovery is permanent.
Personal support of this nature is available for as little as £30 a week.
