Nhs Or Private Rehab?

Private Facility

Private residential facility is better treatment option for many people. In the most cases, getting into centre can be organised within twenty four 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. Getting an NHS admission to a private treatment facility is also an option.


Who Can Apply For Rehab Funding With The Nhs?

UK residents are entitled to benefit from free addiction treatment programs through licensed community based NHS rehab or private residential recovery centres across the country with the right equipment. 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 readiness of your local dependency team to fund your rehab, getting into residential treatment might take numerous weeks.


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.
