“At Port of Call, we spend our days supporting people who are affected by addiction and are seeking help and treatment.
We hear many worries as well as a mix of misconceptions, shame and secrecy around addiction and rehab, all of which stands in the way of people seeking support.
In a bid to open up a public conversation about how better we can support people in our society who are facing problems with alcohol and drugs, we carried out a survey to uncover public perceptions around addiction in 2019.
While some results make for uncomfortable reading, by shining a light on what people believe to be true about addiction – and highlighting the realities – we hope to further demonstrate to those in need of help that they are not alone.”
