Regain your mental and physical wellbeing.

What is drug addiction?

Drug addiction occurs when a person is unable to control their drug use. It’s a complex issue, often closely linked to mental illness and trauma.

Signs of drug addiction vary, but can include:

  • prioritising drug use over daily activities and responsibilities
  • increased tolerance and cravings
  • changes in behaviour, such as irritability, anger or violence
  • onset or worsening of mental health issues, such as depression, anxiety or paranoia
  • withdrawal from social contact and activities.

I need help for a loved one.

We can help you support someone you care for.

Signs of drug addiction vary from person to person, which can make it hard to know if someone you love is suffering.

Without treatment, drug addiction can cause significant deterioration of physical and mental health, impact financial wellbeing, have legal repercussions and lead to family breakdown. The sooner your loved one can access support, the better their chances of recovery will be.

At Wesley Hospitals, we offer three treatment options: appointment-based individual counselling, day programs in a group setting, as well as in-hospital stays. This provides your loved one with choice and flexibility to access the support that they need.

You’ve already taken the first step in supporting someone you love who may be experiencing a drug addiction. For more information, contact our assessment team to see how we can work together to help your loved one identify their condition and take steps towards recovery and long-term sobriety.

You're not alone.
