Higher education is at the core of much of what goes on in Cambridgeshire. The county is home to the University of Cambridge, the second oldest university in the English-speaking world. Yet despite being known for its world-class schools, Cambridgeshire is very similar to the rest of the UK when it comes to drug and alcohol abuse. There are those who spend their days struggling with addictive substances.
Some find they cannot get through a day without a bottle of alcohol in hand. Others regularly use illicit or prescription drugs in order to cope. Still others might struggle with compulsive gambling or sexual activity. At any rate, all of them need help to get their lives back on track. Connecting people with that help is why Middlegate exists.
Middlegate is here to assist you by providing free assessments, advice and treatment referrals in Cambridgeshire. We have connections to a full range of treatment providers including residential clinics and local charities. We can help assess the seriousness of your problem for the purposes of finding a treatment programme appropriate to your circumstances.
We Listen to You
Middlegate operates based on the philosophy that every individual client deserves individual service. This begins with listening to you. When you contact us, we will give you every opportunity to explain what you are dealing with, how long you been dealing with it, and what you hope to gain by getting help. We believe it is our responsibility to fully understand where you are coming from before we can recommend the right kind of treatment.
As for the treatments themselves, we do not believe that every client who contacts us is best served in the same way. Rather, we believe developing bespoke treatment plans for each person is the approach that will yield the best results. We work with clinics and other service providers who follow the bespoke treatment model.
Is residential treatment right for you? On the other hand, perhaps you would be better served by an outpatient treatment programme. There is no way to know for sure until we can speak with you. If you are ready to make a change in your life, now is the time to contact us.
More than Detox
Detox is certainly one option for those who need help in Cambridgeshire. Nevertheless, detox is not the be-all and end-all for all drug and alcohol-related problems. In fact, the most serious substance abuse issues require at least some psychotherapy after detox is complete. Middlegate is here to make sure you have access to that therapy.
We are committed to helping every client who contacts us. We are here to assist both addicts and their family members by providing free and confidential services. Whether we help you is ultimately your choice. If you are willing to contact us today, we will commit ourselves to making sure you have all the information you need to get treatment for your problem. If necessary, we can even help you make admission arrangements. All it takes is a phone call or e-mail.
