Free or NHS Drug & Alcohol Treatment Services in Kent

Whether you choose private rehab through us or decide upon different modes of treatment, outpatient addiction treatment and support groups are useful for many individuals on the path to long-term recovery.

Outpatient addiction treatment services in Kent help those struggling with alcohol or drug abuse, without committing to 24/7 care. While these services are useful for some individuals, they leave you or a loved one exposed to alcohol or drug use with limited professional support.

Private counselling is one form of outpatient addiction treatment, there are many addiction counsellors in Kent who are BACP qualified, a list of them can be found here.

We are the British Association for Counselling and Psychotherapy

There are also support groups such as AA (Alcoholics Anonymous) or NA (Narcotics Anonymous) that we strongly recommend regardless of the type of treatment you or a loved one pursue.

If you decide to pursue free drug or alcohol addiction treatment, your GP may refer you to one of the NHS drug and alcohol support services in Kent, such as the Open Road Recovery Service.
