The process of getting help for addiction

Successful treatment for alcohol addiction or drug addiction can take several forms and determining the best course of action for you or your family is the first step.

There are numerous ways to tackle alcohol and drug addiction; from support groups, to counselling, from free ‘outpatient’ services to private alcohol rehab facilities. Port of Call are independent addiction specialists and can help you choose, find and access the right treatment option for you.

Choosing the right treatment for your addiction

  1. It starts with an assessment of your needs from someone who understands alcohol addiction or drug addiction. This assessment requires willingness and honesty and should always happen in a confidential and supportive setting.
  2. Then, tailored recommendations can be made. There is no ‘one size fits all’ solution for addiction. People have differing budgets and priorities. There will be a treatment option that is suitable for you, we just need to find it.
