Were you aware that Greater Manchester has a population of more than 2.7 million? It is not as large as the Greater London area, but Manchester is certainly not too far behind. This is both good and bad. It is good in the sense that the metropolitan county offers many opportunities – economically, culturally, educationally, and socially. Nevertheless, it is bad in the sense that wherever there are so many people, you are bound to have a certain amount of drug and alcohol problems.
As dynamic and attractive as Manchester is, it does have its dark and seedy side. The fact that you are visiting our website tells us you might have experience with this part of Manchester. Maybe you are struggling with a drug or alcohol problem; maybe you are hoping to help a friend or loved one. At any rate, you have come to the right place. Middlegate is here to help you.
Middlegate is a free drug and alcohol referral service established for one purpose: to provide assistance to substance abusers, addicts and their families. We do not provide the treatment you or your loved one needs; rather, we connect you with those who do at no charge to you. And in case you’re wondering, there is a long list of rehab clinics and other treatment options in the Greater Manchester area.
Private Treatment Options
A number of people who call us are looking for help locating free NHS services or local support groups. We are more than happy to provide assistance. However, what if you try those services and they do not work? Alternatively, what if your problem is so serious that counselling and support alone are ineffective? These types of cases are perfect candidates for private treatment in a residential clinic.
We are likely to recommend residential treatment for the most serious addiction problems. Residential treatment offers a number of distinct advantages, including a focused and concentrated approach that enables the individual to be treated without distraction. Group support and NHS counselling services do not offer these benefits.
A typical residential treatment programme can last anywhere from four to 12 weeks, followed by up to three months of aftercare services. The idea is to not only help you come clean, but also to help you avoid relapse in the future. These are the things residential clinics specialise in.
Your Best Option
We want you to know that Middlegate is a referral service, and our devotion allows us to recommend the best treatment option according to your circumstances. For example, you may be best treated by a 12-week residential programme in the Greater Manchester area. If not, a better option might be a shorter residential programme or a treatment plan that combines outpatient services and 12-step work. We will strive to find your best option regardless of what it might be.
If you are ready to overcome drugs or alcohol, Middlegate is ready to help you. Contact us today.
