Support for Managing Substance Misuse

 

What is Substance Misuse?

Substance misuse refers to the use of drugs or alcohol in a way that can cause harm to your physical, mental, or social well-being. Whether you are struggling with excessive use or addiction, seeking support can be a critical step in achieving recovery and living a healthy life.

 

Signs & Symptoms of Substance Misuse

Recognising the signs of substance misuse can be challenging, but seeking help is an important first step towards recovery. Signs of substance misuse can include changes in mood or behaviour, isolating from friends or family, and difficulties with relationships or work. It can also include intense feelings of withdrawal or ‘cravings’ if the substance can not be obtained. If you have noticed changes in your own behaviour or the behaviour of a loved one, it may be time to seek support. 

 

How can Counselling help?

Counselling can be an effective tool for managing substance misuse by providing individuals with the skills, support, and guidance needed to achieve recovery. Through counselling, individuals can explore the underlying causes of their substance use, develop healthy coping strategies, and establish a relapse prevention plan. Our skilled counsellors can help individuals to identify triggers that may lead to substance use, address co-occurring mental health issues, and establish a support network.
