This will include questions about your personal circumstances, your physical and mental health, and your addiction problem. This will enable our team to work out the best course of action to take with your treatment programme.

Treatment Deposit

As residential rehab clinics are more in demand than they have ever been before, a deposit will be necessary in order to book your programme and bedroom. We accept multiple forms of payment, including Debit and Credit Card, electronic bank transfer, or cash. We unfortunately do not accept cheques for deposits.

Your Admission Day

We will then prepare you for the treatment assessment with our specialist Doctor.
