Alcohol and Drug Rehab in Oxfordshire

Addiction doesn’t just hurt the person taking harmful substances. It also affects family members and everyone around them that cares about their wellbeing. When dependency occurs, the world of someone with addiction shrinks to a point in which they can only focus on the next drink or drug intake, and the euphoric feeling derived from the substance. Despite how much they may care about others in their life, spouses, children, parents, work, and activities previously enjoyed take a back seat to the world of active addiction.

Rehab centres can help you overcome addiction and re-integrate back into your former life and society in general. Through the application of medical detox, psychotherapy, and a serene, therapeutic environment, you can and will make a full recovery, repair relationships, learn relapse prevention skills, until you’ve regained full control of your life.
