Although English is commonly spoken when looking for any counsellor whether that be for alcohol, gambling or even drugs our experience has shown us that it is most likely that the addiction counsellors with the most personal and professional experience in working with ex pats will be native English speakers. Local resources include professional counsellors operating their own practice or outpatient clinic or day rehab in Singapore. Alternatives to face to face counselling in Singapore can be found by accessing experienced addiction therapists through remote counselling online at How to Treat Addiction.
