Although the county of Avon no longer exists in a legal sense, its 22-year history as a ceremonial county in the West of England is hard to forget. In the nearly 20 years since Avon’s abolishment, it has retained a certain number of public and private entities that still make use of the county designation. To you, Avon might be home.
We want you to know that help with drugs and alcohol is available if you live anywhere in the former Avon area. Here at Middlegate, we are less concerned about geographic designation and more about making sure our clients get the help they need. This includes you. There is nothing for you to be wary of when you contact Middlegate Addiction Advice & Treatment. We are not here to cause you any more trouble than you are already experiencing; we are here to help.
What We Do
The free services we provide to residents of Avon are pretty straightforward. We offer free advice, treatment referrals, and initial assessments of drug and alcohol problems. We also work with private rehab facilities in the area to provide the treatments our clients need to get well. All we ask from our clients is a commitment to make that first call and then to follow up on the advice and referrals we provide.
We can help you if you are struggling with:
- illicit drugs
- prescription medications
- new psychoactive substances.
That said, we can only help if you contact us. When you make that phone call, you will be connected with a trained counsellor more than capable of helping you figure out where you are. Our counsellor will listen to what you have to say and answer all your questions. The ultimate decision about what to do next rests with you. You can choose to do nothing or you can take advantage of the help that is out there.
Calling Middlegate is your first step in finding out what treatment options are available. And believe us when we say there are plenty of options. We will provide you with information about private rehab clinics, local charities, free NHS services, support group participation, etc. Our goal is to make sure you have all of the information you need in order to make an informed choice.
Before you call, you should know that there are two primary types of treatments to choose from: outpatient and inpatient. Outpatient treatments involve visiting a clinic or another location in order to receive the help you need. You return home at the end of every session.
