Before I go and see a cousnellour to see if they can get me into detox I guess I just wanted to know approximately how long I’ll have to wait because if I have to see a counsellor for 6 months before I get in I don’t really think it’s woryh it

Alcohol Addiction ruining us

Ever since my partner started the night shift, he started drinking every night (maybe to cope with tiredness). However, it's slowly becoming an addiction. He's not being his normal self and it's ruining our relationship. What do I do with this? Do I bring him to a counselor as soon as possible? Or do I have to talk to him first? Thank you!

What do to do about my pot addiction?

Ok, so I have DID which makes things very complicated but regardless at this point I think pretty much every part of me loves pot in some way shape or form and I can no longer even go more than 2 days straight without it.

Ongoing issues with alcohol


I am wondering if anyone can help. A relative of mine has alcohol problems. The ongoing problems has led to liver problems. Over the past 6 months, they have been admitted to hospital around 4 times (with stomach problems etc).

They are not actively seeking help and when we speak to them, they are oblivious to what we are saying and seem to have a blank expression on their face (as though they are ...

Alternatives for Stimulant medication addiction

I used to be addicted to stimulant medication i took for ADHD. I took Ritalin for 4 years through my education, and believe I became heavily addicted. I had to stop taking it because I got sick and now I cannot get access to it as it may trigger mania or is liable to abuse. I display ADHD symptoms and was diagnosed with it originally before it was updated to Bipolar. I still believe I ...

Worried about Xanax withdrawals

Hey everyone, I've been dealing with panic attacks and severe anxiety especially these past few months. An ER doc prescribed me 1 mg of Xanax to take as needed. I've had the pills since early October, and I have been using them intermittently. This past week, however, I've used them once a day for about 6-7 days. I was wondering if I am at risk of being dependent or facing withdrawals if I were to ...
