Self-Funded Rehab Costs 

Affordable Addiction Treatment at Castle Craig

How to Fund Rehab at Castle Craig

“How much does rehab cost?” and “How can I pay for rehab?” are two of the most frequently asked questions from people considering drug or alcohol treatment, and understandably so. Here we’ll be breaking down the three main payment methods and discuss the aspects of treatment that influence the overall cost of rehab. 


One of the main advantages of self-funding rehab is immediate access to treatment without the delays sometimes associated with insurance or NHS waiting lists. This means patients can start their recovery journey as soon as they’ve completed the admissions process. Additionally, self-funding ensures you are not limited by insurance coverage constraints, allowing you to complete your treatment without interruptions. At Castle Craig we also provide a range of additional therapies and treatments, which self-funding patients can fully access, tailoring their treatment plan to their specific needs and enhancing the effectiveness of the treatment.

Paying for Your Treatment

At Castle Craig, we understand the urgency required when getting someone into rehab, so we aim to ensure that your experience is as seamless and stress-free as possible.

Below is a step-by-step guide to help you navigate the payment process. 

Initial Contact with Our Admissions Team

The first step is to call our admissions team. During this call, they will ask you some questions about your addiction and take you through the pre-admission assessment. There is no obligation at this stage but it is a good opportunity to find out about payment options.

Pre-Admission Assessment

For self-funded admissions, we require details of your medical history from your GP. If contacting your GP is not feasible, we’ll ask you to let us know during the assessment so we can find an alternative way to obtain the information we need. However, please note that some form of medical documentation is essential if you wish to proceed with admissions.

Receiving Pre-Admission Information

Following your initial assessment, we will send you a comprehensive pre-admissions information pack. This will contain all the important details about our treatment process, what to expect, and how you can prepare. Our team will also discuss and help arrange your transport to the facility.

Communication with Your GP

We will send a letter to your GP to inform them that you are at Castle Craig for addiction treatment. In circumstances where additional medical information is needed, especially for complex cases, our consultant psychiatrist or another clinician may reach out to your GP for further details.

Recognised Insurers with Castle Craig

At Castle Craig, we are committed to making high-quality addiction treatment accessible and will assist you in exploring the best payment option to suit your circumstances. Our payment methods include self-funding, private health insurance coverage, and NHS-funded spaces. For self-funding clients, we provide a straightforward process that allows for quick admission, usually within 24 hours, making it an efficient choice for those who seek immediate assistance. 

We also accept a range of private health insurance plans, which can cover part or all of the treatment costs, depending on your policy.

Additionally, we have a limited number of NHS-funded spaces available for eligible patients. 

How Much Does Rehab Cost?

For anyone thinking about self-funding their drug or alcohol treatment, it’s important to understand that the cost can vary significantly. This variation is primarily due to two key factors: the length of the treatment and the specific programme type selected.

  • Length of Treatment
  • Programme Type
  • Medical Detox
  • Psychological Therapy
  • Complementary Therapies 
  • Meals
  • Residential Stay
  • Continuing Care Programme

If you’re considering treatment at Castle Craig then we advise that you get in contact with our admissions team for more detailed and accurate information regarding costs.
