Addictions are often linked to debt problems, or can make existing money problems worse. It can end up being a vicious cycle. One the one hand, you borrow more money to feed addictions - but that increases debts. And struggling to keep on top of growing debts can trigger addiction. But help is at hand. 
Please check for advice on how to cope with money worries.    

Addictions affect more than just the person coping with the problem. They often lead to breakdown in families and relationships, as well as having an impact on mental health.

The best approach is to seek specialist advice, as there isn’t a 'one size fits all' solution to addictions. If your addiction is affecting your physical and mental health, try speaking to your GP in the first instance. They’ll be able to advise of local support to help your recovery.

Alcohol and drugs

Alcohol dependency and drug addiction can lead to physical and mental health issues. They also damage our relationships, careers and in turn, our finances.

Fixing the physical and mental impact comes first, but it’s also important to plan a recovery from any financial problems.
