Help with Addiction in London

Addictions and abuse

Are you struggling with a drug problem that's spiraled out of control? If so, you may feel isolated, helpless, or ashamed. Or perhaps you're worried about a friend or family member's drug use. In either case, you're not alone. Addiction is a problem that many people face.

The good news is that you or your loved one can get better. There is hope -- no matter how bad the substance abuse problem and no matter how powerless you feel. Learning about the nature of addiction -- how it develops, what it looks like, and why it has such a powerful hold -- will give you a better understanding of the problem and how to deal with it.

The answer lies in the brain. Repeated drug use alters the brain -- causing long-lasting changes to the way it looks and functions. These brain changes interfere with your ability to think clearly, exercise good judgment, control your behavior, and feel normal without drugs. These changes are also responsible, in large part, for the drug cravings and compulsion to use that make addiction so powerful.
