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.
