Drug, alcohol and other addictions can be very debilitating for an individual and damaging to their surrounding family, friends or workmates. It affects people right across the board, transcending socio-economic and racial boundaries.
I specialise in private assessment and treatment for individuals with drug and alcohol problems – to enable them to overcome dependency and restore personal order to attain a more fruitful life.
