A quiet town just north of Birmingham, Telford has once been named one of the happiest places to live in Britain and is reputed to be a generally safe place to live in Shropshire. Great statistics to have overall, but they do not discount the personal troubles that face different people every day. Everybody is entitled to feel pain, and it has inevitably led to unhealthy coping mechanisms in the form of substance abuse.

These habits have continuously led people to lose stability in their lives as well as connections with family and friends that matter. This is true in cases occurring in Telford as well as the rest of the world. While it is possible to return to normalcy, it is important to ask for support and guidance that will enable you to return to this path in a healthy manner.

Rehabilitation therapy centres in the Telford area are available to those who need support in their journey to relearn these coping mechanisms and work towards a healthier, more positive future for themselves and their loved ones.

What is offered at rehab in Telford?

Telford offers a range of rehab help centres that cater to your needs and offer a variety of alternatives for you and your loved ones. It is your choice whether you are treated as an inpatient, spending a portion of your rehab treatment in the centre, or as an outpatient who only comes in for appointments. It is also your choice whether you decide to pay for private treatment or enrol in an NHS clinic around the Telford area. Both differ in the way of cost and quality, being as NHS clinics are cheaper, while private clinics are well maintained and usually admit people upon registration rather than having to wait for the queue to free up.

Is drug and alcohol abuse a problem in Telford?

Telford is a town that has a reputation for being safe and happy. Unfortunately, substance abuse continues to plague at-risk individuals and threaten the lives of people around the world, even in Telford.

According to a strategy statement released by the government in 2019, an average of six people die every year owing to drug misuse in Telford and Wrekin and twenty-two more from alcohol. Meanwhile, just over nine hundred people use opiates and cocaine. Still, there is no support group for those suffering from addiction to cocaine in the town of Telford.

As of 2019-2020, 16% of parents living with children in the Telford and Wrekin area are dependent on a substance. It was also calculated that seventy-nine per cent of parents have been untreated for their dependency.

The importance of rehabilitation help centres and support programmes becomes clearer with these statistics. The involvement of children is also a factor that increases the urgency for us to take action. Rehab is not only helpful to one person; it also supports family and allows for healthier relationships and connections to develop between one another.
