Managing Addiction - Drug & Alcohol Support Campaign

HarryTHarryT Community Manager Posts: 320 The Mix Regular
edited September 2022 in Drink & Drugs
Hello everyone!

As you might be aware, this autumn The Mix are setting up and delivering a drug and alcohol support campaign. We thought it would be cool to have a place to discuss some of the key topics that our Community Champions identified, so that you can all share your wisdom and thoughts with one another.

For our first discussion thread, we were wondering if anyone has any thoughts or advice on managing or coping with addiction that they would like to share? This is a judgement free space, and any and all ideas are welcome whether you have experience of substance use or not, so don't be shy!

If you're interested in finding out more about addicition to drink or drugs, then you might find some of the below resources interesting:
  • We Are With You - This charity provides a range of support services and information for those concerned about their own drug or alcohol use, or for those who are worried about a friend.
  • Lizzie's Story - You can read about Lizzie's experience of addiction to drugs on our website.
  • NHS - The range of NHS support services available to those concerned with addiction are outlined on this page.
  • The Mix Drink and Drugs Support Hub - This hub contains a range of information and links to support you to make informed decisions that are right for you about drink and drug use.
  • Drug Addiction Counselling Search - You can use this tool on the NHS website to find drug addiction counselling services.

Are there any other resources that we've missed? Please do go ahead and share them if so!

Take care,
Harry
