Response from Philip Gibson, Team Manager, Ashley House

Thank you for your posting. It is good to know that we are helping you and please keep using our services to help you in resolving your problem.

I think people start using alcohol or drugs and maintain the use of them for various reasons .Examples of this would be things like lifestyle choices, peer pressure, physical /psychological dependance, maladaptive coping techniques and habit . It is important to examine these reasons to enable the individual to address their problem and move towards recovery however I then think the most important thing is that the individual gets the right treatment and support focused on their individual needs which is what we try to do at Ashley House.
