As the second most populous county in the country, the West Midlands has its fair share of addiction treatment and rehab facilities. While there are many options to choose from, it’s not always easy or quick to find the right treatment for an alcohol or drug problem. It can be an overwhelming process, so it helps to have a bit of help along the way. This guide is intended to assist you in identifying the options that might work for you, in or around the West Midlands.
Before doing anything else, you need to have an accurate diagnosis. So, if you believe that you, or a loved one, might have a problem with alcohol or drugs, you need to approach your GP for an assessment. Once you have received your diagnosis, the healthcare provider may then refer you to a specialist treatment provider, depending on the nature of your addiction. This referral could be to private rehab or another organisation that provides support for addiction.
