Help

Drug addiction doesn’t just affect the user. It takes its toll on parents, friends and relatives too.

Living with someone you think might be experimenting with illegal substances or struggling to cope with an addiction can be emotionally draining if not heartbreaking.

All kinds of questions like what can I do to help and why did they start taking drugs will be running through your mind.

While we can’t really answer those questions for you we can point you in the direction of people and organisations throughout Essex and the rest of the UK who can help.

If you’re trying to kick a drug habit you’ll find the help you need here too.
