NHS Addiction Treatment

If you live in Chelsea, Barking or Brixton or any other town, borough or district in London, you have the option of getting addiction treatment through the NHS. This option is entirely free, which makes it a viable alternative for individuals who cannot afford treatment in a private rehab.

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 addiction detox and rehabilitation. The length of the waiting list is typically dependent on the level of demand for NHS addiction within your area at the time but can be up to 12 months.

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.
