Treatment of alcoholism and other addictions

For those affected by alcoholism or drug addiction, the use of alcohol or drugs becomes an obsession. Their whole life revolves around this consumption to the detriment of all other activities. Gradually, they come to neglect their family and professional responsibilities. Interpersonal conflicts arise and worsen. At this point, despite the problems that accumulate, they simply can no longer resist their obsessions of consuming.

Know that there are solutions and that you can receive help quickly and confidentially!

Am I at risk?

Here is a small questionnaire based on the general symptoms of addiction:

  • Do you ever be unable to resist a desire to consume?
  • Do you ever observe the rise of tension (or stress) that leads to consumption?
  • Do you ever feel relief when you consume?
  • Do you ever experience a loss of control when you consume?

Answering yes to only one of these questions may indicate the presence of an addiction problem. If so, rehabilitation center can help you.
