About Private Healthcare

Private individuals can access our detoxification services directly without a referral from community drug and alcohol services.

Edward Myers Unit therapy room

As a private patient you can be confident that you will receive the highest quality care and treatment within an NHS-run facility with outstanding outcomes. You can be reassured that our team is highly skilled and dedicated to working closely with you to achieve your recovery goals.

Coming to us as a private patient may be right for you if you do not wish to be referred to us through your community drug and alcohol service. This might be because you may have a personal preference about how you wish to be treated (such as at home or in hospital), or because you wish to fit your treatment around your life and work commitments.

You can refer yourself directly to our service or be referred by a family member, employer or any other concerned individual who is able to fund private treatment on your behalf.
