How can I get help?
Although you might find it hard to talk to someone about your addiction or mental health, asking for help is the first step to your recovery and sobriety.
Admitting to yourself that you have a problem with a substance or depression is the first step and in itself isn’t easy. The next step, asking for help, may feel even bigger.
We know that asking for help can feel overwhelming. It’s a tough step, but a vital one.
You do not need to feel ashamed or as if you are a burden, asking for help takes courage.
Shame can be a powerful barrier to asking for help. Shame can make you feel unworthy. It will tell you that you did isn’t okay, who you are isn’t okay and that nothing you do will change that. You are worthy because you are human. You are okay and you can change your life. Don’t let shame stop you from asking for help.
There are a number of things you can do if you are desperate, in crisis or in need of support.
Choosing to enter inpatient treatment for mental health or addiction issues is a life-changing experience. It doesn’t matter if it’s your first time or if it’s something you are familiar with, it’s never easy and it can be a daunting prospect. You are certainly not alone if you are feeling anxious about it.
Most of the patients admitted into our hospital are in crisis. Our aim is not only to alleviate the immediate crisis, but also to provide them with the opportunity to change the direction of their lives and gain new momentum.
South Pacific Private’s Inpatient Program will immerse you in a full and intensive therapeutic program designed to address the problematic behaviours, attitudes and feelings that have led to your current crisis.
The structured program offers full-time care with a team of highly trained and qualified GPs, psychiatrists, nurses, therapists and counselors. The program supports you in gaining insights to the problems and the changes needed to get your life back on track effectively and quickly.

The goal of our self-tests is not to provide you with a diagnosis for yourself or for someone you care about. Instead, they are an opportunity for you to better understand how a behaviour might be impacting upon your life or the life of your family. Use these tests to enhance your awareness of what the problem might be. These tests should be answered honestly in order to provide accurate insight and are a chance for you to reflect upon the current situation.
