Nhs Or Private Rehab?

Private Facility

For most people give the first hand choice to the private residential rehab treatment centres. 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 Is Eligible To Apply For Nhs Rehab Funding?

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.


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.
