Private treatment in Wales is available and, where clinically appropriate (and space is available), the same day. However, unlike England, there are fewer private centres than there are, pro rata to the size of the country and population. It can sometimes be quicker to access treatment in England , though the centres in Wales are less costly than the majority of the centres in the UK. 

The clinic chains, and referral agents, will advertise that they have centres all over the UK: A centre in every city, town and postcode in the UK. The simply truth is: They don’t. By using post-box addresses and serviced office reception services. They do this in order to get you to pick up the phone. Referral agents often use images of clinics that they lift off websites and purport to own the centres. There are, in fact, only a very few actual clinic chains. 

Paul is an addictions clinician with three decades of direct clinical experience. He has worked, for several years, referring patients directly into private centres and has excellent relationships with admissions teams at all the major centres in the UK as well as working as an admitting/prescribing clinician in several centres. 

All enquiries are treated in the strictest of medical confidence and advice is given without charge and impartially. Paul can advise on treatment options, location, cost and availability.
