When it comes to finding treatment for alcohol and drug addiction, it’s difficult to know where to start. To make it easier, we’ve put together a list of addiction treatment services available in all major counties across the UK. Although private rehab is known to have a higher success rate when it comes to recovery, this is not the only option available. Below you will find pages for individual counties with lists of private and NHS services, support groups such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous), as well as addiction counselling and other government-funded facilities.
The simple answer to this is, no. Many people choose to start their recovery away from their familiar surroundings, and there a number of reasons for this. However, this will also depend on whether you decide to opt for inpatient or outpatient treatment.
In this situation, we always advise speaking to your GP before making any decisions on treatment as depending on your circumstances, they may decide a drug or alcohol detox is appropriate before your treatment begins.
You can also call our team of addiction counsellors who are experts in the field of addiction, and can provide you with all the options available to you, having done a short assessment of your circumstances.
