I know someone who has turned to Alcoholism due to depression/stress/anxiety. The ironic thing is she worked within mental health for 25 years and it is actually the trigger for her addiction. I feel nothing but empathy for this person, their head must be such a horrendus place.

From what I gather, up here, the only way they can get help to “get dry” is if they is admitted to hospital with a physical problem like an injury or something. This person has been on two programmes but relapsed, I suspect they needed more time but there isn’t the funding for that or for sufficient aftercare.

There needs to be more done.
