North Shields Rehab Centre


It is not always easy to know where to go for support with drug and alcohol addiction in North Shields or elsewhere in the country.

The good news is that there is provision for drug rehab in North Shields as well as support for problem alcohol intake and other addictive behaviours.

Port of Call was born out of a desire to ensure people always have somewhere to turn, to find out about the services close to them.

What happens in rehab in North Shields?

Rehab in North Shields, as elsewhere, usually involves a combination of clinically supported detox and rehabilitation.

Detox is the process of physical withdrawal from the addictive substance or element. Support to manage withdrawal symptoms will be part of this.

Importantly, in addition to detox, rehab also includes elements of counselling, talking therapies and other means of uncovering and addressing the root causes of addiction such as learned behaviour, depression or trauma. Different centres do this in different ways and good rehab is always tailored to the individual.
