The link between addiction and money problems

The UK Charity StepChange, which specialises in offering advice on debts and money management, highlights the link between addiction and debt

Spending money on alcohol or drugs, or borrowing more to pay for them, can make it harder to start dealing with your debts. But equally the pressure of coping with problem debt can make it harder to focus on dealing with an addiction’

StepChange can help with all aspects of debt including budgeting and getting debts under control but advises people to get professional help for addictions at the same time.

Gladstones Clinic offers a  rehab programme for addiction that applies abstinence-based, integrative treatments and a non 12-step philosophy as part of our treatment model.

We work with addicts and their families on a daily basis in our residential rehab clinic. We have seen the damage done to everyone involved. We apply our years of experience with the latest integrative treatment models and therapies in our highly successful practice.

Gladstones operates two private residential rehab facilities in the South-West of England, and two in London. Our main office and facilities are located in central Bristol.

All Our clinics provide clients with a private room (en-suite) & full board included in the cost of their residential rehabilitation programme.
