The preferred rehab treatment option for many people is private residential rehab. In most cases, admission can be performed within a day. You will be able to access private rehab treatment if you have the funds to pay privately or if you have private health insurance. In most cases, you're lucky to secure NHS admission to a private rehab clinic.
Addiction treatment option should be accessible to all the UK residents which is free at the point of delivery through the NHS at community based rehab or private residential Rehab. You may need to demonstrate that you have investigated local community based treatment choices, first you must qualify to meet all requirements for NHS financing at a private recovery facility. Depending on the willingness of your local addiction team to fund your treatment accessing residential rehab may take a number of weeks.

Private rehabilitation facilities:
Securing admission into residential private rehab clinics in UK through NHS or local community addiction services could take months and the outcome is not definite. Funding through the EU cross border healthcare directive is however possible to gain a much faster access.
For UK based patients all information about that option can be found on the Alcohol Rehab Wiltshire site.
