Being healthy is not just about physical health. It also includes emotional, social, sexual and mental well being. If you are recovering from drug use the idea of "being healthy" can feel like a tall order. But don’t worry - it doesn't all have to happen at once. The hi health section will help you improve your health one step at a time.
It may be easy to think that no matter what you do some health
problems are unavoidable. What you hear from friends, families and
others around you can leave you feeling helpless and out of
control over what happens to your health.
If you feel that poor health is impossible to escape then taking
positive action becomes harder. With Hepatitis C for example, some
people refuse a test because they are pretty sure they must have
it, so why have a test to tell you something you think you already
know? What if you don't have it? If you do have Hepatitis C there
is treatment, it is possible to clear the virus and there are lots
of things you can take action on to improve your health around it.
Taking control is a first step and not expecting to be in poor
health is equally important. It is possible to prevent poor health
and to improve poor health. Use this site to find out where your
health services are and discuss referrals with your key worker.
