If you are looking to take your first steps in treatment for drug or alcohol addiction, you can get NHS care in the same manner you would for any other health problem.

You will then have a treatment plan which may include:
- Talking therapies
- Treatment with medicines
- Self-help strategies
How to identify addiction
- An inability to stay away from a certain substance or behaviour.
- Relationships suffering and abandoning commitments.
- Taking risks in order to gain the substance or complete the behaviour.
- Feeling withdrawal symptoms or increasing dosage to feel the same effect.
