NHS Addiction Treatment

The NHS – in partnership with local bodies and charity organisations – carry out drug and alcohol services for Suffolk residents involved with substance misuse and those suffering as a result of a loved one’s addiction. You can be referred to any of these services via your local GP, friends or family, or you even can refer yourself in many cases.

Pros and cons of NHS Treatment

The main benefits that NHS treatment and other public sponsored services offer are free treatment, availability of local services within your community, and the protection of your private information. However, you’ll likely have to endure certain shortcomings, such as:

  • Treatment programmes can be slow
  • There’s a possibility you’ll not be referred to a residential rehab programme
  • On the rare occasion you don’t get a referral, the admissions process can take a long time to complete
  • NHS programmes are limited to outpatient treatment, meaning that you won’t get 24/7 expert supervision
  • If your immediate environment isn’t drug and alcohol-free, you’ll almost certainly face more difficulties during treatment
  • Access to your counsellor could be limited
  • You may be required to switch centres for different treatments

Addiction Support Groups

Addiction support groups are recovery pillars that can help you remain dedicated to abstinence in the long term. These meetings are ideal for the post-rehab period and during outpatient treatment programmes. You’ll be able to access help with other recovering addicts and will also receive support whenever you’re on the brink of relapsing.

Also, through experiences shared by addicts during meeting sessions, your motivation to stay abstinent and healthy will be sustained. A sponsor (who has been in recovery longer then you have) may be assigned to you in order to provide guidance from experience.

There are support groups throughout Suffolk that hold regular meetings on different days of the week. These meetings are free to attend and require only a willingness to recover on your part.
