Private Rehabilitation

Whether it’s to alcohol or drugs, an addiction can develop very quickly – and it can rapidly become a life-threatening affliction. What’s more, it isn’t merely the addict’s life that gets affected: loved ones can be permanently damaged by the experience of being close to a dangerous addiction. If you’re concerned that you or those you love may be in danger because of an addiction, rapid action needs to be taken – and it’s frequently the case that the most immediate and effective course of treatment in the most serious cases of addiction is private rehabilitation.

Addiction Support Groups in Somerset

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 (a.k.a. Narcotics Anonymous) is a non-profit organisation where volunteers help each other gain the confidence that being clean and staying away from drugs is a possibility. Following the 12-step programme, they encourage complete abstinence from addictive substances and behaviours, including alcohol. This is due to the high rates of alcohol addiction in the UK.
