Even worse, addiction doesn’t only negatively impact the personal life of the addict, but also negatively affects those around the addict who care about them.
If you live in Blaina, Abertillery, or any other part of Blaenau Gwent, and are struggling with an addiction to alcohol, prescription medication, or illegal drugs, you don’t have to live the rest of your life with under this burden.

By seeking help at our private rehab for your addiction as soon as possible, you can avoid the long-term damages that addiction can wreak on your health and personal life. Our comprehensive addiction treatment programme is tailored to care not just for the physical aspect of your addiction, but also the psychological aspects. This will ensure that not only do you make a full recovery but that your chances of suffering a relapse are also greatly reduced alongside it.
