Affordable Residential Addiction Treatment Centres

in the UK residential addiction treatment (rehab for short) has to be paid for privately, because rehabs are run by charities, or by companies who need to cover their costs and pay their staff.

Where to find low-cost addiction centres for urgent treatment

Not everyone can afford to pay for private addiction treatment.

Unfortunately, in the UK, residential addiction treatment (rehab for short) has to be paid for privately because rehabs are run by charities or companies who need to cover their costs and pay their staff.

The NHS has a minimal number of addiction treatment beds, and it also does not directly fund addiction treatment.

Local authorities and their alcohol and drug action teams are responsible for addiction treatment in most countries. These teams are part of social services.

Unfortunately, they do not fund residential addiction treatment – only in specific circumstances. And some areas more so than others.

Get help NOW

If you are reading this page, you may have already contacted some addiction rehabs and discovered that their treatment is too expensive for you.

You might also have contacted your local addiction teams or your GP and been told that your chances of getting residential rehab are minimal.

For this reason, we are presenting to you several low-cost treatment options.

We want to reassure you that low cost does not necessarily mean low quality.

Low-cost rehabs will have less specialised staffing and less comfortable interiors.

However, their safety, effectiveness, caring, responsiveness, and leadership standards may be very high, or at least satisfactory.
