NHS Or Private Rehab?

Private Treatment

Private residential facility is better treatment option for many people. In most cases, admission can be performed within a day. If your pocket allows it or if you are covered with private health insurance, you'll be able to get into private rehabilitation facility. In most cases, you're lucky to secure NHS admission to a private rehab clinic.


Who Can Apply With The NHS For Treatment 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. 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.
