Spend an afternoon or two strolling through Sandwell and you will be treated to a lovely area made up of six picturesque towns, numerous parks, playing fields, more than 30 miles of canal, interesting historical sites, and some very impressive architecture. The beauty and overall attractiveness of the region might even lead you to believe that life in Sandwell is all but perfect. Life is good there, but it is never perfect. There are people in Sandwell dealing with very real drug and alcohol problems.
Sandwell’s proximity to Birmingham makes it easy for substance abuse and addiction to move between the two. However, the positive side here is that the combined size of both areas allows for plenty of opportunities for rehab. There are private clinics and other treatment providers throughout Sandwell and Birmingham ready and waiting to help those in need.
How do you access that help? By getting in touch with us. Just by calling our 24-hour helpline, you can get all the information you need about:
- inpatient and outpatient detox
- outpatient and residential rehab
- local alcohol and drug charities
- local drug and alcohol support groups
- different types of therapies available in your area.
We provide all of this information at absolutely no charge to our clients. In addition, we can help in locating and accessing treatment as well. We do what we do because we want to see substance abusers and addicts overcome their problems.
Conquering Addiction in Sandwell is Possible
Addiction is a serious problem on many levels. Physically, we know that addiction can result in severe and irreparable harm to the body. It can even lead to premature death if not dealt with. Nevertheless, there is more to addiction than just physical damage. It also affects the mind and emotions. So much so, clients often call us when they finally reach a point of having lost all hope.
Being in a place of no hope is a dangerous place indeed. If you find yourself there, you may believe there is no possible way you can ever escape the substances or addictive behaviours that now control you. Would you be willing to trust us when we say there is a way out? You may not see it now, but it is there. We should know; we have helped countless others just like you find freedom from drugs and alcohol.
We work with private counsellors, rehab clinics, and others who offer treatments for:
- alcohol abuse and dependence
- marijuana, cocaine, heroin, etc.
- morphine, codeine, and other prescription drugs
- Eric 3, MDAT, and other so-called ‘legal highs’
- aerosols and household solvents
- compulsive sex, love, gambling, etc.
As you can see, almost every kind of addiction can be treated in Sandwell. It is just a matter of figuring out what your problem is and then applying the right treatment model. The first step is to call us so we can provide you with a free and comprehensive assessment that will determine the severity of your struggle.
Choosing Your Treatment Option
Please note that we are not in the business of forcing our clients into a particular kind of treatment or a single facility. Not only do we not subscribe to the one-size-fits-all mentality, but we are also not affiliated with any specific rehab centre or treatment method. We are an organisation that helps the client to figure out what the best treatment options are for him or her. Ultimately, the client chooses the best treatment option.
To give you a head start, here is a short list of the most common treatment options available in the Sandwell area:
- Private Counselling – Private counselling exists for those who have less severe problems not requiring inpatient care. Counsellors help substance abusers and addicts come to terms with their struggles so that solutions can be found.
- Support Groups – Support groups such as Alcoholics Anonymous and Narconon provide valuable group support and rehabilitative therapies to those in need.
- Residential Rehab – The most severe addictions are best treated via residential rehab programmes at private clinics. Residential rehab offers a focused, distraction-free environment in which concentrated rehab can be completed in 3 to 12 weeks.
- NHS Services – The NHS does offer a limited range of free services to those struggling with drugs and alcohol. However, bear in mind that their services are often oversubscribed and are not really appropriate for severe addictions.
Choosing the treatment option that is right for you requires looking at your full range of circumstances. For example, what substances do you use and how long have you been using them? How many times do you use per day? Do you use drugs or alcohol because you assume there is no other way to get through the day?
The assessments we offer clients take into count a full range of factors that go into determining the best way to treat an addiction problem. We look at what you use, how often you use it, your history, your current family situation, your current financial situation, your overall health, and your goals for the future. Trained counsellors take all the information you provide and use it to help you understand where you are and what you need.
