Help 4 Addiction - In Collaboration With The Police Federation

At Help 4 Addiction, our team aims to provide support to people with any type of addiction and get you in touch with rehab centres in your community. We operate in multiple areas across the UK meaning that you can be assured to receive your support regardless of your region.

We have recently begun a collaboration with The Police Federation in order to show our support to police officers across the country who struggle with addictions as many believe they are not entitled to help due to their job role.

If you are a police officer working in the UK and are struggling with an addiction that you are too scared to discuss with your friends and family, our team is dedicated to providing you with the support you deserve.


The Difficulties of a Police Officer

Regularly, the police force in the United Kingdom must become accustomed to facing perils in their day-to-day lives. This can be an incredibly difficult transition for many people to make and sometimes results in unhealthy addictions in their personal lives.

Many people across the world treat their police force with a sheer lack of respect but it is vital to remember that they are just human beings too. The words they hear daily will remain and constant abuse can take its toll on any person, but police officers are expected to accept this as part of the job.

The police force can be a traumatising place to be, having to bear witness to brutal crime scenes, fatal traffic collisions and more would be enough to lead anyone down a dark path which is a common reason why many police officers take up addictions.

Since being a police officer is such an authoritarian role, there are not many support networks for police officers to fall back on when they find themselves amid an addiction. This is what we aim to change.

Coupling all of this with the fact that police often work very strenuous hours and are called upon at various times of day, it can be difficult to maintain patterns which many people use to simply keep their lives together.

If you are a police officer and are struggling, or perhaps have noticed a colleague in need of support, please do not hesitate to get in touch.


H4A Founder Nicholas Conn

This type of support is deeply rooted in Help 4 Addiction as our founder, Nicholas Conn, was once a police officer who struggled with addiction and felt like he could not reach out to his peers due to the nature of his job role.

Our collaboration with the Police Federation has been spurred on through Nicholas’ struggle in his own life as he aims to prevent his experiences from being repeated. Police officers have one of the most difficult jobs in the country so it is important to provide relief wherever we can.

Many police officers, Nicholas included, have discussed finding it incredibly difficult to talk to the people around them because they fear for the integrity of their job and feel that they have no place left to turn when tackling addiction.

While Nicholas was able to eventually overcome his difficulties with addiction, many are not so fortunate making awareness and facilities for people across the UK imperative for the mental health of police officers everywhere.


Our Collaboration with The Police Federation

As mentioned briefly, Help 4 Addiction is beginning a collaboration with the Police Federation to assist police officers all over the country with their addictions and allow them to overcome such difficulties with the correct support networks in place.

This collaboration aims to raise awareness of struggling police officers across the country to make sure that everyone receives the support that they deserve regardless of the job role they have found themselves in.

Our mission is to reduce the number of people within the police force from feeling like they are trapped with their addiction and have to face this troubling task alone. We will be by your side every step of the way and will aim to get you in touch with an excellent rehab centre in your area.

Rehabilitation is available for anyone, these facilities will always welcome new people to receive treatment. These treatment processes will be based on whatever you believe is needed may this be a full detox or a gradual ease.

If you or a loved one are a police officer who is currently struggling with the difficulties of addiction, please do not hesitate to call 0330 058 8227 and you will receive all of the support you deserve.
