Devon may be one of the most picturesque and desirable parts of the UK, but sadly that doesn’t mean it’s any less affected by the blight of drug and alcohol addiction. The county is home to many addicts and their loved ones who are suffering from the impact of substance abuse. However, there are also plenty of resources available to anyone in Devon looking to turn their life around, so don’t despair: help is at hand if you’re prepared to reach out for it! If you or a loved one are in or near Devon and seeking support, read on for a guide to facilities and organisations near you that can help.

What is NA?
NA (Narcotics Anonymous) is a globally renowned non-profit fellowship for people whose drug abuse has had a detrimental impact upon their lives. Everyone attending NA meetings is trying to abstain from drug use and to develop a new way of life. There are no fees to attend and everyone is welcome as long as they are actively striving to stay clean.
What is AA?
AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) is – like NA – a non-profit fellowship; since its inception in the 1930s AA has helped millions of people worldwide escape from the claws of alcoholism. AA meetings are held right across the country, including a good number in Devon, and may be particularly valuable for people who have already gone through rehab and are seeking ongoing support.
