The NHS suggests you start looking for treatment options at your GP’s office. They should be able to point you in the right direction – this includes local addiction treatment services that may be free. The NHS does not run its own addiction treatment facilities, but can refer you for treatment to a private rehab centre.
However, there is typically a waiting list for treatment with the NHS. There is no telling how far down that waiting list you might be or if your local health authority would be willing or able to pay for your treatment. The NHS does provide a directory to help you find services in Berkshire via their website.
The NHS is not the only option for free addiction treatment, as there are charities and private addiction treatment organisations that can be of help. One of them is Addaction, which is one of the foremost mental health, alcohol and drug charities in the UK.

Making the decision to enter rehab is a massive step. To ensure the rest of the journey to recovery is as smooth as possible, make sure you choose the most appropriate recovery programme for you. This decision must be considered carefully, as it is indeed a life-changing one.
Speaking to an addiction treatment expert or your GP is a good way to start. They should be able to help you understand your addiction and the options available for treatment. Before you agree to be treated in any facility, you should ask a range of questions.
For example, find out the duration of the programme, the credentials of the medical team, whether the facility is licensed, and so on. Also, it’s important to consider the cost of treatment; the treatments methods employed; the location of the facility; whether or not they offer treatment for co-occurring disorders; and the philosophy of the treatment centre.
