For fee paying/private clients, while there is a private alcohol rehab centre in Newry: it can not provide detox services. The large chains and referral agencies advertise that they have centres in Newry, and elsewhere in N.Ireland: They do not. There are no private detox/rehab centres in N.Ireland. They will use images of centres, based in the UK (often without permission) to try and encourage you to pick up the phone. Sure, it is inconvenient that there are no private centres in the North, but it is a fact that the sector continues to workaround. While there are centres in the South, they are exorbitantly priced compared to  centres in the UK, usually four times the price. 

Accessing both low cost, and high end, centres from the North (on the mainland) is very straightforward. Paul has referred many patients from N.Ireland into UK based centres. Often, the centres will arrange for someone to meet you at the airport/ferry port. 

Call and speak to Paul in total confidence. He can advise on treatment options, availability, location and cost.
