You regret things you’ve said or done under the influence
If you’ve often had regrets about things you’ve said or done while drinking or using drugs, it may be an indicator that you need some help. Talk to a counsellor about your drug and alcohol use and help take stock of your situation.
You’re not feeling physically or mentally healthy
Alcohol and drugs can take a toll on your mind and body. If you’re not feeling healthy or have medical problems relating to your drinking or drug use, we can connect you with a support service that’s right for you.
Our counsellors can help to uncover underlying issues that may be trigger for addition
Inspiro offers drug and alcohol counselling to those facing addiction and their families. This service is offered in Lilydale, Belgrave and Healesville.
