Drug treatment can work in many different ways and it may be helpful to combine a number of treatments. Complementary treatments are often helpful for relaxation and improving sleep patterns. Though relatively new to the UK they have been used for thousands of years.

The old expression don’t knock it until you have tried it might be appropriate here. Complementary treatments may sound strange, but they have been used in eastern countries for over 5,000 years.  Accessing these therapies and learning more about foods that will help the body to recover from drug use may give you a real advantage in drug treatments. Most harm reduction services and drug treatment services offer some complementary therapies on site, talk to your key worker about giving one a try.  This section of the site will give you an idea of what to expect and what the potential benefits are.
