Affordable Residential Addiction Treatment Centres

Where to find low-cost addiction centres for rehab treatment

Not everyone can afford to pay for private addiction treatment.

Unfortunately, in the UK and in other countries, residential addiction treatment usually has to be paid for privately due to a lack of public funding and lengthy NHS waiting lists. Many people are also put off at having to go through months worth of meetings with social services to obtain funding.

There are low-cost options

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 a place in a 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 may have less specialised staffing, less comfortable interiors and fewer holistic facilities such as gyms or private grounds.

However, their safety, effectiveness, caring, responsiveness, and leadership standards may on a par with other higher cost options.
