Getting help

In a world of apps and instant hook-ups it can be really easy for drugs, alcohol or sex to get out of control.

It might suddenly feel like you’ve gone from experimenting, or an occasional bit of fun, to something which you now feel is taking over your sex and social life – and you’re not quite sure how it happened.

There might be other issues such as depression, relationship problemswork or money worrying you too.

Making changes can be difficult, especially when it comes to drugs. Whether you want to cut back a bit, be safer or quit entirely, getting some help can really make a big difference. Friends and family can be a great source of support and there are specialised online services as well as other local services which can help too.
