How Much Does Rehab Cost in Gloucestershire?

Different centres offer different financial packages, but prices at private rehab generally start from £1500 pounds. Rehab centres consider the financial status of the patient and offer payment options that you can afford. Most rehab centres partner with insurance companies, so your treatment and rehab might be at least partially covered if you have a valid policy.

Rehab centres that are commissioned by county or city councils usually offer free services to residents. However, residents may still have to contribute towards food and accommodation for the duration of their stay.

The Hygrove House in Gloucester and Gladstones Clinic in Cotswolds offer luxurious rehab centres and diverse programmes to address the needs of each individual. Both centres accept payments from partnered insurance companies and will work with you to create a payment plan.

Gloucestershire residents might be referred to rehab centres in other nearby counties. The Salvation Army is a charity that offers free quality rehab services for men at Gloucester House in Swindon. Over in Oxfordshire, Banbury Lodge provides quality and affordable services with immediate admission.

It’s easy to find the group closest to you and attend their meetings, which are regularly scheduled.
