Are You Looking for an Addiction Treatment Center in North London?
Boroughs in North London such as Camden, Islington, Barnet, Kensington, Chelsea, Hammersmith, Brent, and Hounslow are fairly well-served when it comes to addiction recovery services, but there are still too many people living in these areas who are struggling to get the help they need. This situation is likely to only get worse as government funding for alcohol and drug projects in North London has dried up. If you are currently struggling to get the help you or your loved one needs to break free of addiction locally, we want you to consider coming to Hope Rehab Thailand.
The Dire Need for More Rehabs in North London
The British Drug Survey (2014) clearly demonstrated that substance abuse is on the rise across the UK. In London, cocaine is the most popular illegal drug, but there is also a high demand for heroin, amphetamine, cannabis, and ecstasy. Alcohol is legal of course, but it ultimately causes more harm than all of the other drugs combined. In recent years, there has also been an epidemic of prescription drug abuse in North London, and ‘legal highs’ are also a source of major concern.
There has never been a higher need for addiction services in North London, yet many of these projects (the ones that are paid for by the government) are witnessing a significant drop in funding, and some have disappeared completely (e.g. Addiction Recovery Project ARP). This means you may have a hard time finding any type of inpatient treatment program outside of the private sector.
Private Rehabs in North London
NHS funded rehab is becoming much harder to find in North London, and this means you may end being expected to pay for your own treatment – even if you would have previously qualified for free rehab. There are a number of private rehabs in North London including The Priory (Southgate) and Cassiobury Court (Watford). Unfortunately, these options can be prohibitively expensive for most of us – e.g. The Priory usually charges £30,000 for inpatient addiction treatment.
Alternatives to Rehabs in North London
If you are serious about breaking free of addiction, the likelihood is that an inpatient treatment program will give you the best chance of achieving this goal. This is because there is far more to recovery than just quitting drugs and alcohol. There will be a reason for why you turned to substance abuse in the first place, and you may have been engaging in a type of self-medication. The goal of an effective residential program is to help you develop the tools for successful sober living while also helping you to deal with the demons from your past. Other benefits of staying in rehab include:
- Inpatient treatment means you will be able to put all your attention on getting better
- You will be protected from the stressors and temptations that usually make you drink or use
- You will be surrounded by people who share you vision for transformation
- You will have access to all the resources you need to change
