With a population of about 39,000, Rutland is a landlocked county located in England’s East Midlands. With bordering counties like Lincolnshire and Leicestershire, residents have no shortage of addiction treatment options, as they can access treatment within the county or in the neighbouring ones. Rutland itself has a selection of rehabs, and other addiction treatment options, which you or a loved one can benefit from.
Undoubtedly, it’s good news that you can access treatment close to you, because addiction treatment must not be delayed. Having accessible support becomes particularly important when you cannot afford to leave work, or other responsibilities, for a long time in order to seek treatment. With a reliable outpatient treatment programme close to your home, office or school, accessing treatment becomes less of a burden.

• Being away from friends and family which at first can be emotionally challenging

Support groups are another free option you might want to explore. Support groups are usually non-profit organisations comprised of individuals who meet regularly, in order to overcome their addiction and help others do the same. You might have heard of Alcoholics Anonymous and Narcotics Anonymous, both of which are support groups. These follow the 12-step model pioneered by Alcoholics Anonymous, but are not the only options available.
The NHS does not manage any rehab facilities, like how a private rehab is run. Rather, they may refer patients to partner rehabs and provide the funding required for the patient’s treatment. While NHS treatment won’t cost you money, it will cost you time, because there are often long waiting lists, due to the high demand for their services. Besides inpatient treatment, the NHS offers outpatient treatment which your GP can refer you to.
Support groups have been solely responsible for the turnaround in some people’s lives, helping them get their lives back together after having been dragged down into the depths by the effects of addiction. These groups can be used in combination with other treatment programmes in order to ensure a more effective treatment plan. For instance, you can participate in support group meetings as you detox on an outpatient basis.
