Addiction is a serious disease, affecting individuals in every corner of the globe. Deciding to seek treatment for your addiction issues is a huge step towards living a healthier life. You can visit any GP or licensed therapist for an assessment of your condition, after which you will be given treatment options tailored to your specific needs. Conwy County Borough provides free addiction services, including referrals to inpatient or residential rehab facilities near the borough.
Charity organisations also operate within the borough, providing free addiction services, with some also offering residential rehab programmes. There are private rehab centres nearby, including the Oasis Recovery Community, which provide holistic treatment services to help you deal with your addiction problem. Both public and private treatment centres in Conway accept self-referrals and referrals from other agencies.
Oasis Runcorn is a private 22-bedroom facility that offers services targeted towards a wide range of issues, including drug and alcohol addiction. Our clinic is renowned for its application of both the traditional 12-step care programme, and the Oasis Strengths programme. Located in Runcorn, clients can visit the town after detoxification, ensuring that they remain connected with the real world outside of the rehab facility. We value community support, so some of our rooms are available for same sex sharers who feel they will benefit from peer support.

Therapy sessions take place in specialised group rooms, individual counselling rooms, and treatment rooms. Physical recovery is a major part of the programme, and clients are encouraged to visit the local gym and swimming pool. The clinic also provides a dual diagnosis for anyone suffering from addiction alongside other mental health problems, and is well-equipped to treat both issues at the same time.
Oasis Runcorn caters to many addiction issues. Aside from alcohol and drug dependencies, we also deal with gambling addiction, anxiety, depression, sex addiction, and codependency issues. Referrals can be made through your GP and other agencies. Self-referral can also be done by calling or emailing the clinic at any time.
Admission into the clinic is immediate, and a medical assessment will be conducted upon arrival.

There are many factors to consider when choosing a recovery programme. You need to recover in a location that is suitable for you, surrounded by people who will work to ensure your journey is as comfortable as possible. Your GP can assess you, to determine if you need inpatient or outpatient care. Most public-funded facilities provide an outpatient-type recovery programme, with inpatient care, or residential rehabilitation, reserved for only the most severe addiction cases.
The type of programme to undergo is also important. Most centres offer the traditional 12-step program, with some others offering other alternatives. Oasis Recovery is known for its use of two different methods, the 12-step model and the Oasis Strengths programme. Location is also an important factor to consider. Oasis is located in Runcorn, with clients allowed to undertake supervised trips into town. This enables them to engage in community activities and maintain a connection with the real world outside of the treatment facility.
Oasis Recovery provides a support system, which also includes family support, as you go through your rehabilitation. One of these programmes, the Family Recovery Programme, consists of individual therapy sessions with family members present. The programme is aimed at helping individuals rebuild family connections, while the family members are educated on the effects of addiction, and how best to help their loved ones on the way to recovery. The meetings are interactive, with all parties given the opportunity to provide constructive comments.
At the end of your programme, you will be connected to support groups in or near your local community. Support groups are also available for those who are not addicts, but have been affected in one way or another by other people’s addiction. Groups situated in Conwy include:
Al-Anon – provides support across the UK for those who are in relationships with an addict, or have been affected by someone’s addiction.
ARCH Initiatives Cymru – provides support across North Wales for adults affected by drugs and alcohol
Alcoholics Anonymous – holds regular meetings for recovering alcoholics in Conwy.
