NHS Or Private Rehab?

Private Rehab

Private residential facility is better treatment option for many people. Enrolment for admission is done within 24 hours. Admission into private rehab treatment program is made easy depending on the mode of payment through available funds from individual or insurance policy cover. There is as well a possibility that you get an NHS admission to a private rehabilitation centre.


Who Can Apply For Rehab Funding With The NHS?

All United Kingdom residents should be able to apply for addiction treatment through the NHS at community based rehabilitation centre or private facility which is free of charge at the point of delivery. You might be required to prove that you have sought local community-based rehab alternatives before to be able to apply for NHS funding at a residential rehab facility. Depending on the willingness of your local addiction team to fund your treatment accessing residential rehab may take a number of weeks.


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