NHS Or Private Treatment?

Private Facility

Private residential facility is better treatment option for many people. Within just 24 hours admission can be scheduled. 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 Can Apply With The NHS For Treatment Funding?

Addiction treatment option should be accessible to all the UK residents which is free at the point of delivery through the NHS at community based rehab or private residential Rehab. 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 find your local liquor and drug treatment centre through your GP.
