Weekly Column Part 2

We often hear that someone has to hit rock bottom for detox and rehabilitation to be successful. My answer to that is WHY? Surely it's better to intervene as early as possible rather than wait for people's lives to completely disintegrate which it will eventually do if their dependency issues are left untreated.

How much suffering does one have to endure before entering into a successful treatment programme such as what we have at The Providence Projects? Surely if we can help someone 'nip it in the bud' before the consequences of their drug and/or alcohol use become dire they will not have gone so far down the scale. That means they won't have that far up the scale to recover.

If drugs and alcohol are costing more than money it's already a problem. If someone is trying to control their usage, it's already a problem. If it weren't a problem why would someone need to try control?

When people come to us they sometimes say that they are not as bad as our other clients. We assure them that if they continue doing what they are doing it will soon be as bad and often worse.

Detox with therapeutic treatment at The Provy may just be the beginning of a completely new life for you, or are you happy with the one you currently have?

Best wishes

"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..."
