Are you concerned about drug or alcohol use?
Reaching out and asking for help is a brave and difficult first step.

Don’t wait to get help - for your or someone else. Inspiro’s drug and alcohol counselling services provide you with the care and advice you need.

We know that coping with a drug or alcohol problem on your own is difficult. Our counsellors can help you put a plan in place and give you techniques to manage a change for the better.

And, if you need more dedicated support, we can refer you to a specialist service.

The following are signs you may need a helping hand to manage your relationship with drugs, medication or alcohol.

1. It’s causing issues with your relationships
Alcohol and drug problems can be the source of many relationship problems. DirectLine can provide advice on how to manage your alcohol or drug problem, and also refer you to specialist relationship and family support services.

2. 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.

3. 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.
