As a resident of Denbighshire, you also have the option of accessing our facility for world class addiction treatment.
Before you begin your search for addiction treatment services, you’ll need to first have a basic understanding of the nature of your addiction. In order to get that, you’ll need to go to a professional for a diagnosis. You can head to your GP, or get in touch with us, and we’ll arrange a free assessment.

One choice you’ll have to make early on is whether you’ll opt for inpatient or outpatient treatment. Inpatient is recommended the most due to its intensity, as compared to outpatient treatment.

Clinicians and addiction professionals consider undergoing recovery in a private residential clinic to be the best option. However, for some people, this route does not always seem viable, due to the extra commitments and other restrictive factors involved.
Private rehab comes with many advantages over other treatment routes and options such as the NHS, charities and free community programmes.
These advantages include:
Cons of private rehab
Cost – which should be weighed up against long-term health deterioration and financial oblivion
While it’s true that rehab is not cheap, prices that patients have to pay are only a reflection of the costs incurred by rehab facilities. Healthcare is not cheap, especially if you are trying to maintain high standards of mental and physical healthcare.
The average rehab in Denbighshire and beyond has to maintain both medical and non-medical staff, buy medications, maintain medical equipment, and pay accreditation and licensing fees.
Oasis Runcorn has a range of cost effective treatment options making it the most outstanding value for money 100% CQC rated alcohol and drug detox and rehab clinic in the UK.
The NHS may offer outpatient treatment, or provide funding for rehab in partnership with various organisations. While the option may be there, it is not always the ideal route. given that funding is limited and the waiting lists are typically long. The NHS recommends beginning your search for addiction treatment at your GP’s office. There, they may suggest that you begin treatment at the practice, otherwise, you may be referred to a local drug service.
If you would rather not go through your GP, you can refer yourself to services like the OFA Project and the Denbighshire Drug and Alcohol Project. The OFA Project assists people who need help with alcoholism, and who require relapse prevention and treatment services. They also help in preventing homelessness, promoting independent living skills, and can provide assistance with maintaining your tenancy.
The Denbighshire Drug and Alcohol Project provides time limited support for people who have substance or alcohol-related problems, and have trouble securing or maintaining a tenancy. The project aims to reduce and prevent alcohol or drug misuse, and can provide support to access voluntary work, training, employment, and education. Both this and the OFA Project can be accessed via referrals made through Denbighshire Single Pathway.
Support groups are a crucial part of many addiction treatment programmes, either serving as the core of the programme, or as a form of aftercare. They are managed by a group of individuals with the common goal of helping one another overcome addiction, and attain long-term sobriety. Denbighshire has its fair share of support groups, with meetings held at different locations and times, in and around the county. Some of the support groups you might encounter include:
Narcotics Anonymous a fellowship of men and women who are bound together by their common goal of staying clean.
Alcoholics Anonymous a non-profit organisation comprising individuals who come together to support one another through addiction recovery.
