Physical Dependency
PDF Print Email

Physical dependency results from the repeated, heavy use of drugs like heroin, tranquillisers and alcohol. Heavy and continual use of these drugs can change the body chemistry so that if someone does not get a repeat dose they suffer physical withdrawal symptoms - the shakes, flu like effects.

They have to keep taking the drug just to stop themselves from feeling ill.

Many of the homeless men do not have the facilities to cook or serve a hot meal

Those sleeping rough are given priority assistance to find shelter.

All men are welcomed in a loving and caring environment where they can relax and learn to share their problems and obtain vital often life-changing support and guidance.
