A Guide To Alcohol And Drug Detox And Rehab In Norfolk

The best remedy for fighting addiction is to get treatment in a CQC regulated detox & rehab clinic like Liberty House Clinic. Addiction can cause health and social implications if it isn’t tackled properly. And, in cases of drug and alcohol abuse, quitting can be difficult due to the onset of withdrawal symptoms when one attempts to stop using the substance they’re addicted to.

Addiction also involves obsessive behaviours towards certain activities, such as gambling and sex, and these also require treatment. While treatment for drug and alcohol dependence involves medical detox and rehab, a holistic type of counselling, and behavioural therapy also go into treating other forms of addiction.

If you have a loved one who is struggling with addiction in Norfolk, or you live in the area and are going through this ordeal yourself, help is available that can see you through the worst of withdrawal and usher you into an addiction-free life.
