The coastal areas of Devon are a tourist’s paradise. Between the beautiful waters and the many resorts, there is plenty to draw people in from all over the UK. However, would you believe that underneath what appears to be a region full of hope and promise there is an undercurrent of trouble? There is. That trouble is substance abuse and addiction. Even Devon is not immune.
You could make the case that the drug and alcohol problem in Devon is more serious than in other places because of its tourism environment. We will not get into statistics to prove or disprove that case, because it is not important in light of the fact that you might need help. If you are struggling with drugs and alcohol, the most important thing is that you reach out to us here at Middlegate.
Do you find many of your decisions being controlled by drink or drugs? Do your friends and family often approach you with concerns about your alcohol and drug habits? Do you find you are craving certain substances to such an extent that you can barely satisfy those cravings? Positive answers to any of these questions indicate you may be dealing with an addiction already. Please let us help you.
Why You Need Treatment
Assuming you recognise a substance abuse or addiction problem in your own life, we want you to understand that you need treatment to get well. Substance abuse and addiction are not conditions that go away on their own. What’s more, you will not be made well overnight – even if you participated in the most successful treatment plan ever.
Think about what it took to get you to the place you are now at. You did not wake up one morning only to find yourself suddenly addicted. Your addiction was a process that developed over time. Likewise, getting well also takes time. If you are willing to put in that time you can learn to live a life free from drugs or alcohol. And trust us when we say there is a whole life out there for you to enjoy.
Your friends and family want to see you get well, by the way. They know what drugs or alcohol is doing to your health and your life; they want nothing more than to see you overcome. If you will not get treatment for yourself, would you be willing to do it for them?
