Addiction Support Groups in Worcestershire
Addiction support groups are specifically focused on substance abuse and behavioural addictions and the issues associated with recovery. Support groups are normally focused on a specific type of addiction which separates one group from another. This makes it easier for members to focus and feel as if their particular issues are being addressed by others who share their same experiences.
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 Worcestershire, and may be particularly valuable for people who have already gone through drug or alcohol rehab and are seeking ongoing support.

4 weeks ago I was ready to end my life and thanks to family intervention they found banbury lodge. They managed to get me in next day and started my isolation which helped sober me up. Then straight into an amazing routine of the 12 steps and CBT. I've had personal issues whikst in treatment which the staff have helped me work through. I was introduced to my therapist Rebecca which helped change my life. Every single member of staff has also had a massive part in my sobriety and start to my journey of a better life. Especially Sarah, Bernie, Lianne, Tom, Zoe and Charlotte, Sandy.
The therapy has been excellent and generally support staff have been very good.
Overall I found the whole experience brilliant, from the welcome I got through to now. Everyone has been lovely.
