Getting Clinic Help

Nhs Or Private Facility?

Private Rehab

The preferred rehab treatment option for many people is private residential rehab. In the most cases, getting into centre can be organised within twenty four 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. Getting an NHS admission to a private rehab clinics can also be possible.


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. 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.
