The ultimate goal of all addictions is to enable the patient to achieve lasting abstinence, but the immediate goals are to free you from any type of addictions, improve your ability to function, and minimize the medical and social complications of drug or alcohol addictions. The Teen Challenge UK drug rehab enables you to find freedom from addiction. Fill out our free application form for more help and information, our service is free.
If you are like many British people, you drink alcohol at least occasionally and do not have an addiction. For many people, moderate drinking is probably safe. It may even have health benefits, including reducing your risk of certain heart problems. Moderate drinking is one drink a day for woman or anyone over 65 and two drinks a day for men under 65. Some people should not drink at all, including alcoholics, children, pregnant women, people on certain medicines and people with some medical conditions. If you have questions about whether it is safe for you to drink, speak with our Support Workers. Anything more than moderate drinking can be risky. Binge drinking - drinking five or more drinks at one time - can damage your health and increase your risk for accidents, injuries and assault. Years of heavy drinking can lead to liver disease, heart disease, cancer and pancreatitis. It can also cause problems at home, at work and with friends.
Any addictions are usually a way of coping with other problems to free ones self from their problems. FREE addiction help is available here.

Drug and alcohol use is very common in our society. Drinking alcohol has immediate effects that can increase the risk of many harmful health conditions. Excessive alcohol use, either in the form of heavy drinking (drinking more than two drinks per day on average for men or more than one drink per day on average for women), or binge drinking (drinking more than 4 drinks during a single occasion for men or more than 3 drinks during a single occasion for women), can lead to increased risk of health problems such as liver disease or unintentional injuries. According to national surveys, over half of the adult population drank alcohol in the past 30 days. Approximately, 5% of the total population drank heavily while 15% of the population binge drank. Our national surveys previously defined binge drinking as more than 4 drinks for both men and women. In 2001, there were approximately 75,000 deaths attributable to excessive use of alcohol. In fact, excessive alcohol use is the 3rd leading lifestyle-related cause of death for people each year. Alcohol use poses additional problems for underage drinkers. The problem is in both alcohol and drugs a tolerance level is attained meaning the taker needs more to get the same effect, this in turn can lead powerfully towards addiction.
Alcohol Addiction includes heavy drinking, binge drinking or both. If you need help with substance abuse you can apply for free to one of our Teen Challenge Centers today.
