Addiction Rife in City of London

London Addiction ServicesAlcohol and drug problems are apparently rising at a quite alarming rate in London’s business districts thanks to the economic problems of the recession causing many high powered financial and business workers to turn to alternative sources of “therapy” to calm their frazzled nerves. The climate of markets going into meltdown and banks laying off large numbers of staff has prompted record numbers of City workers to start looking for London alcohol rehab and cocaine rehab.

Richard Kingdon, of City Beacon, warned in 2011 that that there are “increasing numbers of people who have been taking a variety of substances to deal with the stress of their lives.” One of City Beacon’s recovering clients started drinking heavily at twenty five and then moved on to, as he puts it, “shoving my six figure bonuses up my nose” with a cocaine habit, although he has now been clean for two years.

The client says this sort of thing is “absolutely rife” in the City. “The cocaine dealers have not gone out of business because I've stopped. I could take you five minutes from here to 15 or 20 bars where you would be guaranteed to be able to buy cocaine.” He also claims there are some bars in the area where off-menu bottles of wine can be ordered as a code for cocaine.

"It is all put on the expense account as a £60 bottle of wine, but what the waiters are selling is a wrap of cocaine. These bars are run by criminal syndicates where the food and drink is incidental. They are fronts for drugs."

It is increasingly common for high powered businesspeople to seek out private cocaine rehab and alcohol treatment in avoid the public shame of admitting their problems to friends, coworkers and family. Private London alcohol clinics offer discretion and complete confidentiality, and there are an increasing number of executive-level private cocaine rehab facilities who cater to high achievers and help them get clean without compromising their careers. Some addiction advisory services are even offering specialist addiction help for employers to help them provide support for key staff to avoid compromising company image and profits while still maintaining an effective workforce.
