Getting Help: Clinics

Nhs Or Private Facility?

Private Rehab

For many individuals, private residential rehab is the preferred treatment solution. Enrolment for admission is done within 24 hours. You will be able to access private rehab treatment if you have the funds to pay privately or if you have private health insurance. In most cases, you're lucky to secure NHS admission to a private rehab clinic.


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 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. Residential admission process could take several weeks to go through pending funding approval by local addiction team to enter NHS residential rehabilitation treatment program.

Nhs Alternative: Cross Border Rehab

Results are not certain and the process of managing admission to a private treatment centre via UK NHS or local dependency services can take multiple weeks. Funding through the EU cross border healthcare directive is however possible to gain a much faster access.
