NHS Alcohol Rehabs Berkshire

If you live in the Berkshire area and are looking for a free alcohol rehab for you or a loved one, sadly the NHS does not offer rehab in Berkshire or in any other area.

Funding for drug and alcohol services has been slashed in recent years by as much as 30% in some areas. This has resulted in a disastrous and notable rise in drug and alcohol related deaths, as NHS and council services, called Alcohol and Drug Partnerships (ADPs) have less resources, and simply do not offer in-patient rehab. And, it can take weeks to simply get an appointment in order to get an assessment on your addiction. We are not putting people off liaising with these services, it’s simply that they don’t have the resources or facilities for immediate addiction treatment.

The NHS has no drug or alcohol rehabs in Berkshire

If you cannot afford private alcohol rehab, there are other options to consider, but first of all ask yourself can you really NOT afford to pay for rehab? A medical alcohol detox from drugs or alcohol is not a major purchase and can save lives. For life saving alcohol treatment it really is worth considering if you and your family are able to raise the needed funds.

Applying for government funding for alcohol rehab can take months to be awarded. It is very limited and therefore only granted to the most exceptional cases. Sadly, for many the funding comes too late. Alcoholism and drug addiction are life threatening conditions but tragically when it comes to adequate free addiction treatment, the UK government fall spectacularly short.

For free alcohol or drug rehab in the Berkshire area, please contact your local Berkshire drug and alcohol services team who will be able to advise you of the criteria for applications and the approximate waiting times involved.  You may also find it helpful to speak to your GP and contact Alcoholics Anonymous to find local AA meetings in and around the Berkshire area.
