Drug and Alcohol Rehab Bristol
Bristol, like most parts of the UK, is not lacking in people with drug and alcohol addiction and misuse issues. Addiction is a common and nationwide problem, as many British people self-medicate to cope with stressful or traumatic life events. Alcohol addiction is a particular concern in this country due to its wide availability, in comparison to the illegal status of most drugs – this all points to an inconsistent approach to substance misuses.
At ADR, we are experienced in recognising the signs and symptoms of drug and alcohol addiction, and know how to deal with it when people are ready. We can connect you with the right service and/or programme to address your issue, whether that be a detox centre, rehab clinic, or medical facility.
ADR emerged out of a desire to connect addicts wanting to quit with the programmes and clinics that could help.
If you’re an addict dreaming of escaping your addiction, ADR can help you realise that dream. By listening to your needs, we will find the right place and the right treatment for you – giving you the best chance of success in staying off drink and/or drugs for good. If you want to get help from ADR, we would love to hear from you, so please do give us a call on 0203 878 3600 or contact us via our website to arrange a free consultation and get started down the path to sobriety.

Drugs on the streets of Bristol
Though Bristol is a safe place to live, it is clear that, like many places in the UK, there are problems with easy access to drugs – we aren’t just talking about illegal street drugs, as many addictions relate to, or start with, prescription medications. Sadly, the result is that there are a lot of addicts in Bristol, rehab clinics are full, and the rate of drug-related crime is a fifth higher than the average for other cities, with an overall crime rate 128% of national average. Out of 1,000 reported crimes in Bristol, 3.5% are drug-related.
In January 2020, police in Bristol carried out a number of Class A drugs raids across the town and 14 people were arrested. This came just a week after 18 people had been arrested for drugs offences in what is expected to be a related incident. The level of drugs arrests in the city suggests gang activity, smuggling illegal substances into the country and distributing them within and out of Bristol – this isn’t good news for anyone.

Jane came into my life at a time when I just couldn't stay sober. I could get sober for a couple of days or even a week but then I was back where I started again. Letting everyone down, wondering how I got here again and not knowing what I could do to help myself. Jane showed me that it is possible to get clean and sober, and live a happy life free from drink and drugs. She showed me love, kindness and tolerance when I felt I deserved none of those things."
Michael is probably one of the strongest people I know and has helped me through some of the darkest toughest times of my life … he has always been around for a coffee or been at the end of a phone whatever time of day or night . Given me support and advice both of which has helped me survive .. I trust in him implicitly and am so grateful for his friendship and so proud of the strength of his recovery.
Michael has always played a pivotal part of help and support. He has a wealth of knowledge in life and well being. Trust has always been an issue with me but Michael has a way of identifying and that opens the door to let my guard down and open up, in turn helping me progress with my battle against drug addiction. I’ve alway found Michael to be honest and true to his own beliefs and that has always inspired me to practice honestly, open mindedness and the willingness I need. It’s people like Michael that makes the journey towards a clean and healthy lifestyle easier and more meaningful."
When I was at my rock bottom I felt as if darkness was all around me. I did not want to live, Jane spoke hope into me, and it was like a light came on. She showed me a way back. I'll be eternally grateful. I'm alive today, and I have joy. Thank you Jane!”
