Merseyside has a serious alcohol and drug problem and has done so for many years. Liverpool is known for being a party town, as well as one of the drug capitals of the UK. It has the dubious title of the drug abuse capital of England.
The city is not just home to the Beatles but also to gang wars and drug-related offences. If you live in the Merseyside area you will have either seen first hand or heard about some type of trouble involving drugs, alcohol, and violence.
On top of drugs and alcohol, other addictions are on the rise in Liverpool as well. Castle Craig is a residential rehabilitation clinic that treats alcoholism, addiction to drugs and prescription drugs. We also treat other behavioural addictions such as gambling & cryptocurrency addiction. If you or someone you know are in Liverpool and have an addiction problem we can help you.
Merseyside has seen a staggering jump in the number of people who died from drug abuse in recent years. Shockingly the numbers have almost doubled since 2014.
Driving past the large estates in the Wirral you may wonder what goes on behind closed doors in this part of town, however, The Wirral has seen a massive jump in drug use and deaths due to drug use.
No matter what you are addicted to if you have a problem and have recognised it as a problem you need to seek help as soon as possible. We treat whatever the addiction you suffer from as well as any associated mental health disorders such as depression, anxiety, and post-traumatic stress disorder. See recovering from alcoholism in treament.
This is known as dual-diagnosis. Set yourself free from addiction and find out if we have a treatment plan that can get you on the road to recovery and help you take back control of your life. We also have a chronic pain management programme to treat people with chronic pain who are addicted to opioid painkillers.
