Most people prefer private residential rehab treatment for individual privacy and confidentiality. Enrolment for admission is done within 24 hours. If you have private medical insurance or if you have money to pay on your own, you will be able to get into the private rehab treatment. In most cases, you're lucky to secure NHS admission to a private rehab clinic.
Addiction therapy with the NHS funding at community based treatment or private residential rehab that is free at when delivered, should be an option for every UK resident. 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. 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.
It may take months in organising admission into a private rehab clinic via the UK NHS or local addiction services and the result is far from certain. Funding through the directives of the EU cross border healthcare can be much faster to access though.
All UK patients are requested to take benefit from this service and get more information on Alcohol Rehab West Midlands site.
