Get drug and alcohol addiction treatment in West Bridgford

Published by Raffa Bari

Drug and alcohol addiction is a serious problem throughout the UK. West Bridgford is a relatively affluent area, but it is certainly not immune to substance misuse issues that some residents may associate more with the neighbouring city of Nottingham.

If you are struggling with drugs or alcohol, you might not know where to turn or what to do next. Help is always available, however, and addictions of all kinds can be successfully treated. Inpatient rehab is generally considered to be the best kind of treatment programme for serious addiction and substance misuse problems, but there are also other addition treatment options available in West Bridgford and surrounding areas.

Getting help from GPs in West Bridgford

For many people struggling with drugs or alcohol, their first port of call is their GP. Your doctor can offer confidential advice and address any other health issues that may be related to your drinking or drug use. They may also be able to refer you to drug and alcohol services and other experts if needed.

West Bridgford Addiction Support Groups

Groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) can offer valuable support for people struggling with alcohol or drug addictions.

There is currently an AA meeting that is held at West Park Sports Pavilion, Loughborough Rd, West Bridgford. Meetings can change though, so it’s best to search for your nearest one on the Alcoholics Anonymous website.

For NA, you may have to travel into nearby Nottingham for a physical meeting. You can also attend virtual meetings online, however. Find your nearest meetings and more information on the Narcotics Anonymous website.

Also nearby, the Nottingham Recovery Network is a publicly funded service that provides a single point of advice, support and treatment for anyone in the city who wishes to change their relationship with alcohol or drugs.

Outpatient Treatment Options in West Bridgford

NHS drug and alcohol services are available throughout the UK, including Nottinghamshire.

Another great resource is Change, Grow, Live (CGL), which offers drug and alcohol support services across the whole of Nottinghamshire. Nottinghamshire County Council says that CGL “provides adult drug and alcohol recovery services across the county in a range of community settings, making treatment more accessible”.

It’s worth noting that treatment programmes available through the NHS are almost always offered on an outpatient basis. This means you remain at home and attend various treatment sessions – typically held at a clinic or similar venue.

This can be very valuable, especially for less severe substance misuse problems, but it does have some drawbacks. It can still be very difficult to quit when you are surrounded by the triggers and temptations you associate with your drinking or drug use. It can also be extremely challenging to go through detox and withdrawal with limited supervision and support.

Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Rehab

If you are dealing with a severe drug or alcohol problem, you might also want to consider inpatient rehab. This has a number of clear benefits over other approaches and has been shown to be very effective in treating even the most severe and long-standing addictions. If you cannot find a suitable residential rehab in West Bridgford, it may be worth travelling further afield to find a place that is right for your own individual circumstances. As you ‘live in’ as a resident, the location may not be too important and some people prefer to go to a rehab outside their locality for the sake of privacy as they arrive and leave.

There are several reasons why inpatient rehab is so effective. Firstly, unlike community based or outpatient treatment programmes, you will be in a completely safe and secure environment. You will have no access to drugs or alcohol and will be safely away from those triggers and temptations. Rehab offers a tranquil setting but with an organised and structured treatment programme that allows you to really focus on your recovery. You will be able to undergo a medically supervised detox and will benefit from a complete package of therapies and other treatments designed to address every aspect of your addiction.

Detox and therapies at Cassiobury Court

For most people, rehab starts with a period of detoxification – more commonly known as just detox. This is when you process the drugs or alcohol already in your system, often from years of abuse. This can be accompanied by a range of physical and psychological withdrawal symptoms. These can be severe and sometimes even dangerous, so it is always best to go through this process under supervision if possible.

Detox will be accompanied by a range of therapies that address the root causes and psychological aspects of addiction, as well as workshops that help you to make strategies for avoiding relapse and improve your overall physical and mental well-being. The overall aim is to give you the very best chance of making a long-term recovery, with aftercare support helping you through the crucial weeks and months after you leave rehab.
