Quick Access

Help 4 Addiction are a firm dedicated to providing support to addicts at the moment in their lives when they decide that enough is enough. The cycle of addiction takes its toll on every aspect of your life. It makes you lose friends, drains your self-confidence, has you falling out with family members, leaves you broke, and damages your health. When you look at it from the outside in, it seems a foolish thing to give in to… but when you have been there yourself you know how tricky it is. You rely on alcohol one night because you have a bad day at work. You repeat the following day because it made your feel better. A few months later and you have an addiction problem without even realising how you got there.

We exist to put you in touch with the resources you need when you decide that you have had enough of drinking or you want to quit drug taking. We compare your needs and requests with the multiple options in rehab clinics throughout Hemel Hempstead. Not all rehab clinics are created equal, which can make it difficult to find the right one for you. If you don’t go into the right rehab clinic you have less chance of recovering from your life as an addict. The right rehab, however, can stop you from ever using again… and that is why it is so important that you use a service like ours, when you decide to get off drink or drugs.

Let’s look more closely at the Hemel Hempstead area to find out how much of a drink and drug problem it has. It may seem like a wonderful and safe place to live, but all cities have their dark secrets if you dig around enough.

Drug Problems in Hemel Hempstead

There are drug problems all over the country. Gangs set up the importation of the substances, which are then distributed throughout England and Wales by drug runners and gangs. These drug gangs re usually violent, dangerous people to be involved with. They produce much of the crime associated with drug use in Hemel Hempstead.

Although we know that indications of drug crime in the area doesn’t always equate to an addiction problem, we are aware that there are few ways to monitor illegal drug use in Britain since it isn’t regulated. We must also mention that it is possible to get addicted to prescription medications, just as easily as it is to get addicted to more illegal substances. Pain medication, for example, is a common addiction in Britain.

We turned to drug crime statistics in Hemel Hempstead to give us some ideas of how much of a problem there is. We found that they represented 3.0% of all crimes in the city, which doesn’t sound like much but equates to around thirty arrests a year. These arrests are focused on cannabis, heroin, or cocaine possession. You can view the statistics for yourself, here. News reports are also pretty negative. Herts Police themselves like to record their own successes in write-ups like this one, which details three men being arrested and a white powder substance found. The substance was later found to be a class A drug, so either cocaine or heroin. All this was from a single traffic stop. Herts Live reported of a £40 million drug deal that was foiled in Hemel Hempstead as recently as January of this year. In light of all this, we think it is pretty clear that Hemel Hempstead has a bit of an issue with Class A substance abuse.

If you are sick of being a drug addict and want to break the cycle, contact us online now. You can call us, as well, on 0203 955 7700, or you can see our pages about drug rehab to help you into the right program for you. All we want is for you to quit drug taking and fill your future with potential. It all starts with you making that first move.

Alcoholism in Hemel Hempstead

Ass we mentioned before, alcoholism is an issue throughout England, but that’s not the end of it. This year, a member of Sainsbury’s staff was physically bitten by someone stealing alcohol from their Hemel Hempstead store. As if this weren’t bad enough, the two men in question have yet to be caught… despite CCTV footage. Later, the Hemel Hempstead Mercury reported on how all day boozers gathering around Stansted airport are making officers in the area question the licensing rights it has. Less hours would mean less encouragement to drink all day… something the city is considering as new law. Again, although these incidents don’t conclusively prove that there is an excess of alcohol addicts in the area, it does indicate that those who do drink tend to bring other problems to the forefront. Most of these other problems are related to anti-social behaviour and taking up police time. There would be no need for this waste of resources and excessive policing if we took a firmer approach to alcohol as a nation.

If you live in Hemel Hempstead and you want to stop drinking every night, then we can help. Quit that addiction by calling us for some professional advice on your next steps. We are even willing to listen if all you want is a chat that day, as long as you reach out before it is too late and your addiction kills you… because it eventually will if you don’t quit it. Contact us for advice on 0203 955 7700, or see our information pages about how to quit drinking alcohol for more information.

Help for Addiction In Your Own Home

Did you know you can now get help for addiction without actually leaving your house? It’s true. There are two things we provide in our services that make this possible. Both will only be available to those that are eligible, and this is a safety issue rather than anyone trying to exclude you. We offer at-home detox kits for alcoholism as well as resources like online therapy, which can help you get treatment without you having to travel.

Our home detox kits are available for those that are addicted to alcohol only. You must be able to pass a consultation with a qualified member of our team who will assess your compatibility with this project. You will need to have someone with you if you are going to undertake this, otherwise we would recommend that you seek detox through a specialised facility while you quit drink or drugs.

If you have always thought about going to counselling or therapy to get to the root of your addiction problems, but you struggle in social settings, then online therapy might save you. You can work through all the different techniques that an alcoholism counsellor or drug therapist can provide you with, you just don’t need to leave home. To engage with this type of therapy, all you need is a working internet connection and a PC or laptop. You can even do it through phone if your handset is advanced enough. In these uncertain times following the initial outbreak of Coronavirus, this makes it much easier for us to keep on top of recovery while still observing social distancing rules.

If you want to know more about either of these methods, or even if you simply want a chat with a non-judgemental party, contact us today. You will reach us on 0203 955 7700 or your can use our online consultation service to get started.
