Choosing a drug or alcohol rehab centre in Guildford
There are many rehabs to choose from in Guildford, but it is important to do your research before you make a decision. The first thing you should check is whether the facility is registered with the Care Quality Commission (CQC). This organisation regulates healthcare providers in England and ensures that they meet certain standards. You can check the CQC ratings of all our UKAT treatment centres here to help you make the right choice.

How much does alcohol or drug rehab cost in Guildford?
A major decision you will need to make is between private rehab or NHS treatment. While private rehab in Guildford is more expensive than NHS treatment, it does offer some advantages.
For example, you will have more choice in terms of the type of treatment you receive and the level of care you receive. The NHS is only able to provide outpatient treatment, which is unable to create the holistic treatment environment which is often so crucial for effective recovery. It also makes it very difficult if you need medically assisted detox because the NHS is unable to offer the round-the-clock supervision and support required.
You will also be able to access private treatment more quickly than you would on the NHS. Government cuts mean that NHS services have been badly under-resourced and oversubscribed for years, and the NHS waiting lists in Surrey are between 10 and 30 weeks and Redwood Centre, Farnham Road Hospital in Guildford has a 25-day waiting list for a routine appointment to assess whether you can access treatment support, whereas private treatment could see you booked into rehab within a few days. If you have any worries about funding private treatment, get in touch with us, and we can discuss your options.
