Some people are able to use recreational or prescription drugs without ever experiencing negative consequences or addiction. For many others, though, substance use can cause problems at work, home, school, and in relationships, leaving you feeling isolated, helpless, or ashamed.
If you are worried about your own or a friend or family member’s drug use, it is important to know that help is available. Learning about the nature of drug abuse and addiction—how it develops, what it looks like, and why it can have such a powerful hold—will give you a better understanding of the problem and how to best deal with it. Curamus Haven will allocate you with one of our volunteers who have experience in dealing with addictions. Not only will they provide you with their friendship, they will also offer advice and assistance wherever possible to help you throughout your recovery. If you would like to be allocated with one of our trained volunteers, please contact us.
