Do you recognize yourself in one or more of the following?
Over time you started drinking, using, gambling or gaming more and more often.
In addition to the positive effects, you now increasingly experience the negative effects; you do not feel fit and are often tired. You suffer from mood swings and you get into problems in your relationships.
You no longer recognize yourself; you are not the person you once were or that you want to be.
You do things you would never have done and you don't understand why this is happening.
You have tried to moderate or quit more than once, but it never works for a longer period.
You find it difficult to keep pace once you've started.
People around you are concerned and try to talk to you about your behavior.

There is a solution
However, the solution can never be found in using or playing!
We understand that substance abuse or destructive behavior is usually caused by underlying problems.
But we also know that the solution to those underlying problems can never be found in substance use or behavior. This simply does not remove the underlying issues. What is does do is that you (temporarily) numb yourself. And the next day nothing has changed at all.
We know how you feel, because we have experienced these problems ourselves. We know the solution and can help you find it.
You are not the only one
Many people in the Netherlands struggle with use disorder or addiction. Most people are ashamed and are afraid of being judged and therefore it is rarely talked about. We think that that is a shame. We know that feelings of guilt and shame are reduced when you are able to talk about what is happening to you. Talking about it to people who have experienced it themselves often is a huge relief. You’re really not the only one who is suffering.
