Addictive behaviours are one of the most concerning challenges we may ever have to overcome and a few include overuse or dependence on alcohol, drugs, food (too much or not enough), gambling and abuse (of ourselves and others).
It is a misconception that addicts are unemployed as certainly when it comes to alcohol, you are more likely to drink if you are in employment than if you are looking for work or you aren’t in the job market… Although adults with the lowest incomes are most likely to abuse drugs, particularly Class A substances, the pressures of poorly paid work can be just as significant as having a demanding job. – Workplace Stress and the Role of Addiction
When addictive behaviours present themselves, there are various avenues we can take to gaining much needed support; one of which can be in choosing a rehab centre. Though aimed at a South African audience, these important steps are very relevant worldwide. By choosing to go into ‘rehab’ you will experience the benefits of specialised professional staff, a tailored program to meet your needs as well as after-care.
