Addiction Intervention Management can provide assessment and support to possible dependent to prescribed (POM) or over the counter medication (OTC).
Medication addiction may be a physical issue, where your body lets you know it needs the medication by giving you symptoms of withdrawal, it may also be a psychological issue, requiring additional support with mental health needs such as managing anxiety, feeling low in mood or maybe raising self esteem and confidence to achieve daily tasks without taking certain medications inappropriately.
Some medications are dangerous to stop abruptly and AIM do not recommend this action. As a professional courtesy, we would contact the prescriber of the medication being taken to inform of our actions, this is usually your GP and we will discuss this during an assessment.
Throughout any interventions, you will remain the focus of our treatment and we will be moving at your pace. There is no hurry or rush to complete any treatment and each person is supported on their individual requirements
