For many addicts, alcohol addiction may come after looking for a release for depression, which could have been bought on by a traumatic event – such as the loss of a loved one. It seems like an ideal temporary fix, and may develop so slowly you don’t even realise. When sober, the negative feelings may arise again, thus perpetuating the cycle. Friends, family and colleagues may begin to notice this pattern and feel helpless.
Intervention counselling is in place for concerned family, friends and colleagues of someone who is showing signs of alcohol addiction. If your loved one is having a hard time initially admitting the problem, as you need to speak to someone, phone us today for support and advice.
