If it’s private treatment you are looking for, UKAT has a number of residential rehab centres located in close proximity of West Sussex for those that require immediate help with their substance misuse.
Private rehab is the sought after option for those in the heights of addiction because of its fully integrated treatment plan and fast admissions process. Being treated at a private treatment centre will encompass a medical detox followed by intensive rehabilitation for a period of 28 days. This ensures that the addict is treated on a physical and spiritual level before venturing out into the open world again. In most cases you should receive some level of aftercare and relapse prevention.

Addiction support groups are specifically focused on substance abuse and behavioural addictions and the issues associated with recovery.

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.
