Relapse & Addiction/

Recovery from addiction is a long-term journey that requires the roots of addiction, frequently triggered by emotional trauma or loss, to be addressed.

Those suffering from addiction need support to understand how their addiction developed and what they can do to address these causes without entering the negative spiral that is addiction.

Once understood, life will always present potential hazards that increase the risk of relapse, which may be related to specific locations, people, events, or time of year.

In the UK there were 289,215 adults in contact with drug and alcohol services between April 2021 and March 2022 (a rise compared to the previous year)

Between 2021 and 2022, 133,704 people began some form of drug or alcohol dependency treatment in the UK

In the UK it is estimated that approximately 430,000 people are suffering from compulsive gambling
