Most people prefer private residential rehab treatment for individual privacy and confidentiality. Within just 24 hours admission can be scheduled. If your pocket allows it or if you are covered with private health insurance, you'll be able to get into private rehabilitation facility. Getting an NHS admission to a private treatment facility is also an option.
Who Can Apply With The Nhs For Treatment Funding?
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 admission process could take several weeks to go through pending funding approval by local addiction team to enter NHS residential rehabilitation treatment program.
You can be referred to your nearest drug and alcohol action team by your GP.
