Should Coronavirus Prevent You from Going to Rehab?

With much of the country paralysed by coronavirus fears, you might think that you should postpone or cancel rehab for alcohol or drug addiction until the crisis subsides. However, at this time, the WHO and the UK government appear to be managing the spread of the disease, and the risks of alcohol poisoning or a drug overdose far outweigh the risk of contracting coronavirus. According to the WHO, opioid overdoses alone continue to claim over 100 lives in the UK everyday, and alcohol remains one of the most prodigious killers in the country.

If you are struggling with addiction, you still need help. As always, overcoming addiction could make the difference between life and death, and there is no evidence that rehab facilities are more likely to host coronavirus outbreaks than any other place. We are taking every precaution and we have rigid processes in place to minimise the risk of infection and spread.
