The misuse of drugs and alcohol can cause serious side effects to your health and social life if you don’t seek treatment. Addiction is a medical condition, that is treatable, and in Greater Manchester, there are treatment options that can help you attain recovery.
It can be extremely difficult to quit the compulsive use of drugs and alcohol on your own because your brain has become dependent on these substances for normal function. There’s also another challenge that comes in the form of withdrawal symptoms when you attempt to quit. However, addiction treatment programmes with a medically assisted detox will ease the difficulties of withdrawal.
Everyone goes through addiction differently, which means treatment programmes need to be tailored to the condition of the addict in question. This is why private rehabs, that ensure addicts go through personalised treatment plans, are the best route to recovery. Addiction specialists will inform you of various recovery options available to you in Greater Manchester, from private rehab to support groups near you.

The Achieve drug and alcohol addiction treatment service is a free programme carried out under the Greater Manchester Mental Health NHS Foundation Trust (GMMH). This service aims to identify and support people who are going through hard times as a result of drug or alcohol abuse, and get them into appropriate recovery programmes. Achieve provides this support for people living in in Bolton, Trafford, and Salford.
Support groups and mutual aid communities are known to be helpful recovery options. They are ideal for staying on track and maintaining sobriety, especially after you have already undergone a professional detox and rehab programme. While these groups differ from group therapies, that are spearheaded by licensed professionals, they offer emotional and psychological support through life stories shared by other the addicts during meetings. Some of the support fellowships in Greater Manchester include:
Alcoholics Anonymous: This a self-help group that is based on the 12-step programme, which involves individuals who are fighting to overcome their drinking problems. It is an independent international community with meeting venues all over the world. You’ll find meeting centres in Greater Manchester that are close to you, which you can attend on a weekly basis.
Narcotics Anonymous: This is another mutual aid society that is also founded on 12-step therapy, like AA. However, NA is made up of men and women who have resolved to kick their addiction to drugs. NA meetings are free to attend, with the sole requirement being that you’ve made the firm decision to quit using drugs.
Cocaine Anonymous: This group’s main focus is for those who have come to the realisation that their cocaine use is destructive, and have resolved to put an end to their compulsive consumption of the substance. It is guided by the same principles as NA and AA, but is more streamlined to cocaine addiction.
These are NA meeting venues and opening times in Greater Manchester. These meetings are made up of fellow addicts that are working through recovery.
