This Page was last reviewed and changed on April 12th, 2022
There are many free and paid treatment services throughout the UK, but choosing the right level of service can be a daunting task. Simply choose your county from the list below to find a full list of NHS, private and support group services that suit your needs.
How Much Does Alcohol/Drug Rehab Cost?
The cost of alcohol rehab or drug rehab can vary depending on the area and the type of treatment you require. However, it is usually priced at around £1,500 – £3,000 per week. If you are thinking about attending a private rehab facility and would like to find out specific costings, get in touch and we will be able to provide you with this information to aid you in making a decision.
Can I Choose Treatment In A Different County?
Depending on the service type there are no issues with seeking treatment in a different county, the only exception would be NHS services which require a referral and GPs would refer you to the nearest service in your area. Private rehab, counselling services and support groups can all be taken up in a different area if you would prefer. When decided on a course of action you must consider:
Travelling distance and cost of travel – Especially for those with families or work commitments
Level of care – Some counties do not have private rehabs or counsellors who are trained in the field of addiction
Triggers – If staying at home or around your area brings about temptation, seeking treatment in a different area may discourage such triggers
UKAT provides a number of private rehab facilities throughout the UK so if private treatment is a consideration, feel free to get in touch with one of our team so that they can suitably place you.
What Should I Do Before Making A Decision On Treatment Options?
Always speak to your GP before making any decisions on treatment,as depending on your circumstances they may decide a drug or alcohol detox is appropriate before treatment commences. Our private rehabs offer a full medical detox and fully integrated programme, taking the edge off any concerns you may have regarding the safety of your recovery.
We always recommend that as part of any long-term recovery programme, attending regular AA (Alcoholic Anonymous) or NA (Narcotic Anonymous) meetings will help you abstain from relapse and help to build long-lasting, meaningful friendships.
