Nhs Or Private Treatment?

Private Facility

Private residential facility is better treatment option for many people. Within just 24 hours admission can be scheduled. 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 can choose addiction rehab treatment by NHS at group based recovery or private recovery, which is free at the purpose of conveyance. 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. Getting into rehabilitation like this may be little longer, depending of whether your local addiction team is willing to pay for your treatment.


You can be referred to your nearest drug and alcohol action team by your GP.
