Unfortunately detox and rehab programmes have been badly affected by financial cuts year on year for the last 10 years. The number of detox places available in the UK has shrunk quite dramatically and continues to get smaller each year. The budgets for drug and alcohol rehabilitation which used to be protected are no longer, meaning that most local authorities are diverting this money towards other projects meaning that it is very difficult to get funding for rehab.
In the majority of areas, we find that there is a local provider who will delivery drop-in services and a type of day treatment service. Any monies available tend to be put into these services which on the whole, and from the feedback we receive from our clients do not deliver great outcomes.
In certain local authorities, money is still used for detox and rehab programmes although there may often be either long waiting lists or lots of processes to go through before becoming eligible for that funding.
Fortunately, there are those who still get funding for rehab and get the option of coming into treatment at The Providence Projects, however over the last 5 years, more and more of our clients are self-funding. In some instances the individual will pay for themselves, whilst on other occasions it is family, friends or employers that fund the treatment.
With this in mind, The Providence Projects have endeavoured to keep the prices of both detox and treatment as affordable as we can.
There are a range of detox and rehab programmes available to suit a variety of needs and budgets. To discuss your individual requirements, please call today and speak to a counsellor in our admissions team.
