Club drug culture
We are acutely aware of the impact drugs are having on our young people, and the human consequences present a real tragedy. The abuse of drugs and alcohol costs the nation a total of £36 billion annually with an “epidemic of drink-related conditions” and an emerging problem from other substances which are currently technically legal. Psychological support is of great benefit.
In 2013 the UK had the highest number of deaths on record from ‘Legal highs’, and hundreds of new designer drugs continue to flood into Europe. Therapy is effective in that it significantly enhances the clients ability to raise awareness of the issues they face, challenge core beliefs and reduce distress.
Our approach can have a positive influence, as we are experienced in substance misuse and the impact drugs can have on the individual and the distress on the family. Therapy involves techniques that challenge thoughts but relies on the personal qualities of the client as well as the therapist.
If you or a family member has concerns related to substance misuse, please call for confidential advice on 0161 494 1515. We are experienced in working with clients with complex substance misuse difficulties.
