Where To Get Help For Drugs

Your GP is the starting point to pay a visit. Your GP can help you choose the most appropriate treatment by discussing your concerns with you and accessing the nature of your problems. They might refer you to your local specialist drug service or to treat you. Most of the rehabs accept self-referrals, so if you don't want to discuss your problems with your GP, you can probably get admitted to a rehab centre in your area directly.
