Do the NHS offer alcohol rehab?
It is possible to access an NHS alcohol rehab. However, whilst it would clearly be preferable to receive treatment without having to pay for it, it is important to remember that there is an imbalance between availability of NHS alcohol rehab and the demand in the community. Therefore, there can often be long waiting lists involved when trying to access alcohol rehab NHS options. However this would be better than accessing no treatment at all if self funded options are not possible.
What types of alcohol rehab services do the NHS offer
An NHS alcohol rehab can be offered either in a residential clinic, or on an outpatient basis. In most cases, outpatient treatment will be offered such as counselling, day programmes and support groups. This form of treatment is usually less intensive, and caters for individuals with less severe cases of dependence than a residential NHS alcohol rehab, therefore may not be as effective for those with a heavy, long standing addiction (Gossop, Marsden & Stewart, 2001).
What alternatives are there to NHS alcohol rehab?
Triage Healthcare recognises that there is a deficit in the provision of affordable private treatment for addictions in the UK. It is important that this is addressed in view of the long waiting lists for an NHS alcohol rehab. High quality free advice and information is provided to all, as well as best-value private treatment to individuals with a limited budget. If you arrange treatment through Triage Healthcare you will never pay more and in some cases you will pay less for residential treatment than by booking direct with a treatment centre.
Although a residential detox rehab program is advised primarily for medical reasons, some individuals may wish to consider home detox. Alcohol detoxification can take place in the home if an assessment indicates it is appropriate. Triage Healthcare home detox is supervised by our Medical Director, Consultant Addiction Psychiatrist, Dr Bruce Trathen MBBS MRCPsych. The detox is delivered by qualified and professional staff who are registered with their appropriate professional bodies.
Call Triage Healthcare to discuss the option most likely to result in success for you or your loved one, whether that is in the NHS or in a private clinic. All of our advisors are adhere to strict rules of confidentiality and medical ethics. Your call is guaranteed to be treated in the strictest confidence.
