Addiction Counselling: Drugs

Counselling is one of the most effective treatments for overcoming drug addiction. Either as a treatment itself or as part of rehab, addiction counselling can consist of one to one or group sessions with likeminded individuals. Below you will find all the information needed for you to make a decision when considering counselling for drug addiction. If you, or a loved one, would benefit from speaking to a drugs counsellor, then call Port of Call today on 08000029010.

How and why to contact a drugs counsellor

What is drug addiction counselling?

Drug addiction counselling not only addresses the symptoms of drug addiction but is also used to inform the structure of your treatment programme. There is a significant focus on introducing a change to your behaviour. You will be familiarised with the 12-step ideology and provided with the tools required for recovery.

The end goal is to help you, or your loved one, achieve recovery and maintain abstinence in the long-term. In addition to this, the aim is to help you to also recover from the damage that your drug addiction caused in your life.

Depending on what you require, sessions can take place either in a group, or one to one environment, with a registered counsellor or psychiatrist. The treatment focuses on you sharing your story with others, overcoming isolation and loneliness, and gaining the support you need.
