We treat addiction as a chronic disease understanding that self-control alone will not solve the problem. It is not about being strong or weak; addiction is a progressive disease of the brain that almost always gets worse in the long term. Continued substance abuse generally results in the body building a tolerance, which leads the user to increase both the dosage of the substance in question and the frequency with which they take it.
With specialist help this downward spiral can be stopped but the need for help must be acknowledged in first place. Once this happens it is possible to start on the road to rehabilitation and with continued support to make a full recovery.
An unfortunate belief held by many people is that a person can simply stop taking the substance to which they are addicted or stop engaging in the destructive behaviour through an act of willpower alone. Most people do not understand the complexity of addiction, it is a disease affecting the brain and to simply stop is rarely possible.
If you or a person close to you is battling addiction, it is important to know help is available. Don’t allow misunderstanding addiction stop you from getting the necessary help to beat it.

In November I started with One Step Clinic wanting a new start but not knowing how to begin it. From my first encounter with Dr. Hugh and the team I was treated with respect and understanding. I look forward to my weekly sessions, I have learned alot about myself and addiction and feel I have been given the skills to deal with it. Alcohol had taken over my life but I have started on the road of recovery and am determined to stay on this path.Roy, Treated for alcohol addiction
