Addiction

In society today a vast number of people suffer from a variety of addictions however most people imagine a drug addict or an alcoholic to be homeless or a criminal but in most cases this is not true. The majority of people suffering from alcohol or drug dependency still have jobs or families although there are also those who have already lost these as a result of their addiction.

Addiction is often described in terms of someone having a physical compulsion and a mental obsession to drink and/or use drugs. This means that the addicted person experiences unusually strong cravings. It is common that the addicted person may well have tried to stop on several occasions but discovered that however strong their will power was, it was not strong enough to keep them permanently clean or sober.

To discover if you or your loved one has a problem please go to the dependency questionnaire.

What Do I Need To Do?

The decision to enter treatment for addiction is a huge step. It takes great courage to have an honest look at both yourself and the damage that your addiction has done to those close to you. At this stage you may still have many unanswered questions:

  • What is a detox and do I need one?
  • How long will treatment be?
  • How much will it cost?
  • What are the success rates?
  • Will I have my own room?
  • Is there any on-going support after I leave treatment?

"An unassuming house in the heart of Boscombe where miracles happen. From my initial talk with Paul, the admission process with Jon and my induction with Darryl, I was treated with compassion, empathy and understanding. All the staff had been in the same position as me!...If you are looking for a wealth of experience and knowledge around addiction, a safe environment to turn your life around and a solid foundation for your ongoing recovery you will not be disappointed.”
 
"Today my husband Paul is 1 year clean and sober thanks to The Providence Projects, he has found himself again and is living the life he deserves. " A life beyond his wildest dreams "… He initially signed up for 1 month but soon realised he needed a further 2 months. Paul has been dedicated and followed the advice given to him. He would not be here today if he hadn't been to The Providence Projects. I cannot thank or praise the program and staff enough…”
 
"A very special place, with wonderful staff. 3 years on life is amazing. Thank you so much for everything you all did for me. Alcohol dependant and a chronic gambler the Provi gave me a platform to turn life around and that it has, meaningful relationships, wonderful friends and most importantly peace of mind. You told me good things would happen and they have - and continue to do so. Highly recommended..."
