Getting Clinic Help

Nhs Or Private Rehab?

Private Treatment

For most people give the first hand choice to the private residential rehab treatment centres. Within just 24 hours admission can be scheduled. You will be able to access private rehab treatment if you have the funds to pay privately or if you have private health insurance. Getting an NHS admission to a private treatment facility is also an option.


Who Can Apply For Rehab Funding With The Nhs?

UK residents are entitled to benefit from free addiction treatment programs through licensed community based NHS rehab or private residential recovery centres across the country with the right equipment. To qualify for NHS funding at a residential rehabilitation centre you'll possible have to provide evidence that you have tried to get in local community-based treatment options first. Residential rehab session is only dependent upon willingness of your area addiction group to finance your treatment. It takes many weeks even months.


For referral you should go to your GP so he can instruct you to the alcohol and drug action team which are nearest to you.
