In December 2008, the Guardian published a story about alcohol abuse in the North West of England. The story focused on statistics that showed alcohol abuse in England was the worst in North West cities like Manchester, Liverpool, and Salford. In fact, Manchester led all of England in the total number of individuals needing help for alcohol addiction.
The good news is that there is plenty of help available in the North West. As one of the nine regions of England, the North West offers alcohol addicts plenty of choices via private rehab clinic, NHS services, outpatient programs and more. Finding the help you need is a matter of knowing who to get in touch with.
Like anywhere else in England, the types of services available are quite extensive. The best results are achieved through a residential treatment program offered by a private alcohol rehab clinic. Residential treatment offers the greatest chances of long-term success by dealing with both the physical and mental aspects of alcohol dependency.
Unfortunately, a private residential program is not possible for every addict. Nevertheless, thankfully there are free services available from the NHS. These services include detox, long-term outpatient programmes, and counselling. Of course, there are also services made available through local charities and support groups like Al-Anon.
