Drug & Alcohol Services for Adults in Somerset
There are services in Somerset to treat adults that have problems with drugs and alcohol.
For those with a dependency, or addiction, these services are designed to help reduce the harm that drugs and alcohol cause to the individual and those around them, and ultimately achieve recovery from addiction and re-integration back into community life.
This process is referred to as the treatment journey.
This is supported by linking to other services that focus on issues such as housing, benefits, education, training and employment. Many of these are not drug and alcohol specifc but have a role to engage with people with drug or alcohol problems.
The treatment journey can be broken down into four stages:
Some types of treatment cover more than one stage of the treatment journey and some people do not require every stage of the process.
What is important is to see it as a journey, in which people move back, as well as forward, through the stages in their personal process.
So what are the stages and what treatment options are available?
