Do you struggle with addiction? There are resources in the Netherlands that can help you. On this page you'll find information on resources to combat addiction.

Addiction treatment in the Netherlands

In the Netherlands, you need to get a referral by a General Practitioner (GP) to qualify for addiction treatment. The website of the <a href="https://ggzinterventie.nl/behandeling-verslaving/" title=""><u>GGZ-interventie</u></a> shows a step-by-step plan of how the process of addiction treatment can look like. Besides this, <a href="https://mainline.nl/page/home" title="">Mainline</u></a> offers training and information on drug harm reduction and rehabilitation assistance.

Help with alcohol addiction

When you have an addiction to alcohol, you are not alone. The GGZ offers addiction care and can help you with your problems. Suddenly stopping drinking alcohol is very dangerous. For treatment, you need a referral from your general practicioner. For more information, also without referral, you can always chat or call the GGZ via their website.
