Addiction Support Groups in Merseyside
Addiction support groups are specifically focused on substance abuse and behavioural addictions, as well on the issues associated with recovery. Some prefer to use the informal environment of a support group meeting to share their addiction-related problems and seek advice. Others, on the other hand, find that exact lack of formal treatment concerning and unsatisfactory for their situation. Whichever one of these you feel, it is still a good idea to check out the support groups in your area and meet like-minded neighbours. Creating a supportive environment during recovery is highly important.
What is NA?
NA (Narcotics Anonymous) is a non-profit fellowship for all people fighting an addiction or dependence on drugs, be it legal or illegal ones. Everyone attending the group meetings is looking to abstain from drug use and find a new way to live by following the programme suggested by the organisers. There are no fees and everyone is welcome. Anonymity is a vital factor of the fellowship to enable everyone to attend without fear of social repercussions.
What is AA?
Like NA, AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) is a non-profit fellowship for all people whose lives have been negatively affected by addiction, but during these meetings, you will meet only people who have suffered from alcoholism, be it directly or indirectly. These events are held throughout the week and can be beneficial for anyone seeking help for themselves or as a loved one of someone trying to get better. Even if you feel like your husband, parent or child’s alcoholism is harming you, you can visit these meetings and seek help.

I was treated with respect and talking to other people who have gone through the same experience has helped me greatly.
I came to Runcorn and was treated with respect and I would recommend it to anyone
Difficult couple of weeks, as expected especially over xmas, but well worth it !!!!!.... and great staff !
I have been at oasis Runcorn for the past 3 months for drug addiction. The building is grim /grimy/grubby - definatly needs work doing! The staff however are exceptional. The support workers especially Charlotte have been professional and caring in all aspects of their work -essential at such a distressing time in your life and you don,t know what to expect. The counselling staff are brilliant , they really know their stuff and Darren who was my personal counsellor really helped me to become a recovering addict ! Thank you to everyone at Runcorn including office staff ( Sianna ). The three months were a fantastic life changing experience.
Staff are great. Therapy was also good. The building needs a full refurbishment job. needs painting and new couches and beds. Bed bugs became a big problem in my stay. If these issues are addressed i would recommend to anyone.
