Located in the West Midlands of England, the county of Worcestershire only has one city – Worcester – but also a number of large towns, including Redditch and Kidderminster. Much of Worcestershire is rural, with the Malvern Hills containing volcanic rocks dating back millions of years. The Malvern Hills is also home to the Worcestershire Beacon, the highest peak in the county; the area has been given the title of Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Worcestershire is also home to the longest river in the UK, the Severn, and there are many beautiful hills and woodlands in the county, making it a popular destination for a holiday.
Worcestershire is also famous for Worcestershire Sauce, which is made by Lea and Perrins and is a condiment originally developed by two chemists from Worcester.
With all the natural beauty and stunning countryside, it is hard to imagine that problems with substance abuse could affect residents of Worcestershire. Unfortunately, these problems are a reality for some of the county’s locals but the good news is that there is help available. And that help comes in the form of Middlegate.
Ask for Help
All over Worcestershire, people’s lives are dominated by abuse of substances such as alcohol or drugs and these people need help. Some of these individuals will drink excessive amounts of alcohol, which would then qualify them as alcoholics. Others have become dependent on illegal drugs such as cocaine or heroin. While yet others may be hooked on prescription drugs and cannot function without them.
If this sounds familiar to you, you need to kick the habit and you can do this by asking for help. No one expects you to get clean alone. Breaking free from addiction is tough and those who want to be successful need support from family members as well as treatment providers and qualified professionals such as those here at Middlegate.
Middlegate is a free referral service that helps people with addictions all over Worcestershire and the rest of the UK. We have referred hundreds of people to rehabilitation programmes and can help you too. All you have to do is ask.
What Treatments are Available
Middlegate has access to treatment providers in Worcestershire and the rest of the country, which come in the form of private clinics, charity organisations, and the NHS. The sort of treatment you are given will depend on the type of addiction you are suffering with as well as the severity of your addiction. This could be a detox programme followed by cognitive behavioural therapy or a combination of both. You may be referred to a 12-step programme including group therapy. One thing to remember however is that what works for one person will not necessarily work for everyone. Each person is different and treatments can often be tailored to meet the needs of the specific individual.
Our highly experienced and fully trained staff will assess your circumstances and will then advise you on treatments that are available. We will put you in touch with a relevant treatment provider and there you will get the help and support you need to help you begin a new life of sobriety.
