Drug and addiction counselling

Drugs, alcohol, nicotine, medicines, gambling, food, the Internet and consumerism – many things can be addictive. Every addiction is an illness that should be taken seriously.

Addicts and their families therefore need advice and professional help. They should contact a doctor or an advisory centre. The sooner an addiction is treated, the better the chances of recovery. Many organisations and self-help groups also offer quick and anonymous help.

Wichtige Mitteilung


There have been several occasions very recently in which people have pretended to be employees of the Federal Office and asked for an interview at which they questioned asylum applicants intensively. This took place in some cases on the pretext that a second hearing was allegedly needed. Important: The Federal Office does not conduct home visits! These individuals do not work for the Federal Office. The Federal Office has therefore filed criminal charges. If something similar happens to you, or if you observe anything of this nature as a carer, please report this to your local police station.
