Addiction Support Groups in the West Midlands
It is recommended that overcoming addiction should be followed up with regular meetings. AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) and NA (Narcotics Anonymous) are two non-profit organisations that run weekly meetings in the West Midlands. By regularly attending these meetings you or a loved one are more likely to remain committed to a recovery programme. They are also a great way to meet other people in and around the West Midlands with similar addiction issues.
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 the West Midlands, and may be particularly valuable for people who have already gone through rehab and are seeking ongoing support.

My stay at banbury lodge was amazing , from every member of staff to all the therapists, nothing was ever to much trouble to accommodate me and the therapy was outstanding to, I'm very grateful to everyone there Thank you J
Therapy was excellent, all the staff were extremely friendly and the ccommodation was comfortable.
During my treatment I have faced emotions that I had been suppressing for years through my addiction. I had somedays where I didn't want to get out of bed and almost returned to my self harming days but with constant support of therapists and support workers along with my peers I have been given useful and healthy tools to deal with my darkest moments. Banbury Lodge has given me definite hope for my life time of recovery.
I feel I benefitted from the programme. If circumstances were different I would've stayed longer. I feel well physically and mentally.
Very welcoming and comfortable environment, the staff were amazing and so was the acomodation. I am so glad I came.
