If you’re a permanent resident of the UK in need of addiction treatment services, you are entitled to care through the NHS. The NHS covers most publicly funded services and health centers in the UK. While services may vary according to region, the NHS covers local drug and alcohol treatment services that include detoxification, talk therapy, medication assisted therapy, group therapy, self-help, harm reduction and more. These services are generally offered as part of an outpatient treatment program or inpatient stay at a publicly funded hospital.
Most residential rehabilitation programs outside of a hospital setting are not covered by the NHS. However, financial assistance may be available through individual treatment centers. To learn more about your options and whether you qualify for financial aid, call our 24/7 helpline and speak with a care coordinator today: 1-888-702-1717.
