Essential resources available to you
It is widely acknowledged that recovering from substance addiction is not always a simple, linear journey, and requires multiple crutches and systems of support working in combination together to guide you through this time.
This can include:
- The 12 step programme
- Cognitive behavioural therapy
- EDMR therapy
- PTSD therapy
- Art/music therapy
- Group therapy
- Mindfulness, mediation and fitness
- Family therapy
For some people, this list of techniques and treatments may feel overwhelming.
Although there is a myriad of treatment methods, it can be helpful to re-conceptualise this list as an example of all the many kinds of support that are out there, rather than an exhaustive list of everything you must do to get better.
Along with rehab and outpatient therapy, there is also a large range of resources available online if you are looking for further information.

Where do I go from here?
The range of support systems widely available should bring comfort that you do not need to suffer this disease alone.
Although it can often take a lot of courage to admit that you are in need of help, for the time being, collectively these resources should inform you that suffering from substance dependency is a disease and not something you can control or easily fix alone.
There are verified, reliable ways to treat addiction that have been proven to work and are backed up by evidence, such as the 12 step programme.
If you are worried about your own drinking, then the first step is to contact your GP, explain your problem and ask for a referral to a local support group or a private rehab clinic.
