Addicts and their loved ones looking for help in UK are faced with decline in resources, in wake of rehab centre closures and budget cuts. UK Rehab is helping families find drug addiction help despite these challenges.

“Every year, we help thousands of people get the help they need for personal treatment or to deal with addicts in their immediate family”

UK Rehab,, is helping families find addiction help with its online resource center and 24-hour helpline. The site offers addicts and concerned family members help with what leading intervention expert Daniel Gerrard says is increasingly hard to find: rehab placement. Gerrard, who is a recovering addict, is presently the managing director for the company.

Although combined annual public expenditure for general and health services with respect to the treatment of drug addiction has topped £719.2 million, based on the latest statistics published in the United Kingdom Drug Situation report, the UK has seen a sharp decline in available addiction resources in recent years. For example, a fifth of Scotland’s drug rehabilitation centres have closed since 2009—despite a sharp rise in the number of addict deaths, according to the Daily Record. And England’s Pierpoint House Treatment Centre, a longtime centre that served the surrounding Lancashire community for several decades shutdown unexpectedly late last year, citing lack of funding.

“Every year, we help thousands of people get the help they need for personal treatment or to deal with addicts in their immediate family,” says Gerrard. “For those who can afford it or have access to insurance, private rehab is available. But for those who rely on public services, more money needs to be invested in local treatment and free National Health Service (NHS) treatment facilities, especially for addicts who are pregnant or have small children.”

In an effort to help addicts and their families find life-saving help, UK Rehab offers a full range of addiction services, including drug and alcohol detox, rehabilitation, counseling for the entire family, and NHS Rehab placement services. Additionally, the company helps addicts find community-based addiction treatments such as cognitive behavioural therapy and local support groups.

For immediate, confidential help, Gerrard and the staff encourage families struggling with addiction to call the 24-hour helpline at 0800 024 1491 or take the free online assessment on the company’s website (

Founded in 2005, UK Rehab provides help and support to people affected by addiction. UK Rehab works with both free NHS and private rehabs to get people the help they need.
