When you suspect that your son is addicted to drugs, it’s difficult to know how to respond. Will shouting at them help? Should you call the police? Should you just ignore the situation and hope it’s a passing phase?

We believe that ignoring the situation is the wrong thing to do. Help is available and we can provide it to you and your addicted son. Whilst there is no one solution for every situation, there are steps you can take to start his recovery.

Having an addiction to work is a serious health condition, sometimes called workaholism. Work addiction is often known as the “respectable addiction”, but just like any other addiction, it occurs when individuals act compulsively in order to gain a seemingly rewarding result.

The road to recovery from addiction is a challenging one, made harder through commonly associated feelings of isolation and loneliness. Sharing our experience not only contradicts these feelings but forges connections with others which can be both inspiring and life-affirming.

Escapism, peer pressure or wanting to experiment are all common reasons why a person might decide to use drugs or alcohol. The vast majority of people who use drugs or alcohol are able to stop using relatively easily. However, about 5-10% of people who use drugs recreationally go on to show signs of dependency. This is when their ability to control their use of the substance (including alcohol) becomes impaired, which is known as addiction.
