There are a number of NHS addiction treatment options available in Conwy, especially for individuals who cannot afford private rehab. NHS addiction treatment is available to everyone, regardless whether you’re living in Colwyn, Rowen, or some other part of Conwy.
On the downside it can take a while to receive NHS addiction treatment, due to the fact there is usually a waiting list. Also your treatment might not be referred to a residential rehab facility and access to a personal therapist may be limited. You might have to attend numerous addiction clinics for different treatments. For people who want fast and individualised addiction treatment, the NHS option might not be ideal.
Various addiction support groups are active in Conwy and provide addicts the range of support and help they need to successfully overcome their substance dependence. You can find one within your local community or close by; if preferable, you attend one further away from home for privacy reasons.
