NHS Addiction Treatment

If you live in Borehamwood, Hatfield, Hemel Hempstead or any other town, borough or district in Hertfordshire, you have the option of getting addiction treatment through the NHS. This option is free, which makes it a viable alternative for individuals who cannot afford private treatment.

You can access NHS addiction treatment within your local community either through a referral from your GP or a self-referral. But, unfortunately, there’s usually a long waiting list before you get treatment.

The waiting list can be a problem for those who need prompt alcohol or drug detox and rehabilitation. The length of the waiting list is typically dependent on the level of demand in your area but a rough estimate is 6 to 12 months for the most severe cases of alcoholism, cocaine, cannabis and heroin addiction.

How to Choose a Recovery Programme

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.
