Like the rest of the UK, West Yorkshire is home to a great many people struggling with substance abuse and the county is experiencing significant social damage as a result. Thankfully, there are a good range of resources available to those seeking help with their addictions – so if you’re looking to turn your life around, read on through the rest of this guide.
Picking the right addiction treatment can feel like a complicated process – possibly because of the sheer number of options out there! But don’t be put off: reaching out for treatment will be the best decision you ever make, and you shouldn’t let anything stop you taking that step.
If it’s private treatment you are looking for, UKAT has a number of residential rehab centres located in or near West Yorkshire, for those that require immediate help with their substance misuse.
Private rehab is usually the preferred choice for those with severe addictions. The risk of detoxing from alcohol or drugs alone can be enough to put anyone off, especially when substances have been part of a daily routine for many years. Private rehab ensures that you or a loved one are safely detoxed from drugs or alcohol under the care of a health professional before starting the rehabilitation process. Private treatment centres provide an all-in-one treatment programme while removing any temptation to drink or take drugs.
UKAT are proud to offer one of our facilities in West Yorkshire – Oasis Recovery Bradford – a state-of-the-art drug and alcohol detox facility based in Bradford.
Oasis Bradford detox programme addresses the whole person – body, mind and spirit. A medically managed detoxification or stabilisation is supplemented by a wealth of group and individual sessions and talks to help provide maximum long-term benefit. Complementary therapies are also available and include guided relaxation and exercise.
We also offer free group sessions for families or anyone closely connected to the individual.
These groups provide guidance and support network built and an understanding of addiction acquired. All of which can contribute to ongoing long-term recovery for both addicts and family members.

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.
