Free/NHS Addiction Treatment Options in Cambridgeshire

There are some catches to free or NHS addiction treatment options, and you could be taking risks by pursuing treatment through this method. Free treatment programmes are often overrun, with fully booked rehab clinics and long waiting lists. Addicts may, therefore, find themselves in the dangerous position of being ready to get help but experiencing a long waiting period before any help is forthcoming. Additionally, treatment is only provided for a limited period of time, no matter your needs. The few weeks of treatment generally provided may not be enough in many cases to achieve a full recovery. Admittedly, there are cases abound where people may have little choice in the matter. If this is where you belong, you can speak to your GP to get the process started for NHS treatment.

You can also contribute to the experience for others by sharing your knowledge to other peers or newcomers in need of support.

Addiction Counselling in/near Cambridgeshire

There are several treatment options available to address drug and alcohol addiction, and other compulsive behaviours.

However, not everyone dealing with addiction problems have the financial resources or time to enter inpatient treatment.
