NHS Or Private Rehab?

Private Facility

Private residential facility is better treatment option for many people. In most cases, admission can be performed within a day. 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?

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. Depending on the readiness of your local dependency team to fund your rehab, getting into residential treatment might take numerous weeks.
