Drugs and alcohol

Have you got a problem with drug and/or alcohol abuse?

Whatever type of drugs or alcohol you're into, they can be very dangerous and could get you into serious trouble.

Maybe you're worried that you're becoming dependent. There are many kinds of drugs and lots of different levels of addiction. But one thing is for sure, the first step to getting well again is admitting there's a problem. If you have come this far, then you have made an excellent start.

You probably already know how terrible addiction can be. There may be problems in your life that lead you to take drugs or start drinking in the first place.

Get help and support

You are going to need help and support from someone in getting out of this situation:

  • your family
  • your friends
  • your teachers
  • an organisation like ChildLine on 0800 1111 - you won't need to give your name
  • or for the best information about the effects of drugs visit the Talk to Frank website

And remember, when you talk to someone:

  • no-one will judge you.
  • it will help you to get out of the situation you are in
  • you may be surprised at the support you find.
