Getting Help: Clinics

Nhs Or Private Rehab?

Private Facility

Most people prefer private residential rehab treatment for individual privacy and confidentiality. In most cases, admission can be performed within a day. If you have private medical insurance or if you have money to pay on your own, you will be able to get into the private rehab treatment. There is as well a possibility that you get an NHS admission to a private rehabilitation centre.


Who Is Eligible To Apply For Nhs Rehab Funding?

Addiction therapy with the NHS funding at community based treatment or private residential rehab that is free at when delivered, should be an option for every UK resident. You may have to prove that you have explored local community-based treatment options first in order to qualify for NHS funding at a residential rehab clinic. Getting into rehabilitation like this may be little longer, depending of whether your local addiction team is willing to pay for your treatment.


You can be referred to your nearest drug and alcohol action team by your GP.
