Free addiction assessment at your nearest Priory hospital

All of our private addiction hospitals and rehabs offer a free initial addiction assessment to people struggling with addiction. The assessment is an opportunity to discuss your addiction symptoms, triggers, and anything else that could be contributing to your addiction, such as an underlying mental health condition.

The addiction assessment is performed by one of our world class consultants, either over the phone, online or in person. The assessment usually lasts for 90 minutes.

Once you've been assessed and choose Priory as your care provider, you'll be introduced to our established addiction treatment programmes.

Private alcohol rehab at Priory

Alcohol addiction, which is also referred to as ‘alcoholism’ or ‘alcohol use disorder’, is characterised by drinking alcohol excessively, to the extent that you become both physically and psychologically dependent on alcohol in order to function.

At Priory, we recognise that without expert, timely treatment, alcohol addiction can result in a wide range of long-term psychological and physical problems, and can even be fatal. However, it’s important to understand that alcohol addiction is treatable and you don’t have to struggle on your own. Our highly qualified addiction treatment team, consisting of psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists, and nurses, can offer private rehab for your alcohol addiction at our specialist hospitals and wellbeing centres.

Private rehab for alcohol addiction at Priory is tailored according to your unique needs and the severity of your addiction. You might need to go through a medically assisted detox process to ensure that you're physically stable, before starting intensive alcohol addiction rehab and therapy. This will help you to identify the underlying causes and triggers for your alcohol addiction, before equipping you with the skills to stop drinking, and regain control of your life.

Private drug rehab at Priory

Drug addiction is a condition that's characterised by taking or administering drugs on a repeated basis, until you develop a dependence on these substances. People may become addicted to illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine, or MDMA/ecstasy, or legal prescription drugs.

If it's left untreated, drug addiction can lead to a range of serious problems and can have a negative impact on all areas of your life including your relationships with others, your performance at work, and your general health and wellbeing.

However, the good news is that drug addiction is treatable and the most crucial first step is to get drug addiction treatment and support. Our highly qualified drug addiction teams at Priory consist of expert psychiatrists, psychologists, therapists and other addiction specialists. We can provide high quality private rehab for your drug addiction, including a medically assisted detox process if this is needed. We ensure that everyone who seeks private rehab for drug addiction at Priory, benefits from individually tailored treatment plans, designed to meet your unique needs and requirements.

What can you expect from rehab?

During rehab at Priory, you’ll have a full treatment and therapy timetable, as well as designated times for meals and exercise. A typical day in rehab may include:


  • Medically assisted detox
  • Individual therapy, group therapy, and family support sessions
  • Wellbeing activities and sports

Private rehab admission and pricing information

Private rehab at Priory is available through self-funding or via private medical insurance (PMI) pricing plans.

There are many reasons why people choose to pay to receive expert private rehab at Priory. It may be because your local NHS provider doesn't offer the specific addiction treatment you need, or there's insufficient capacity and long waiting times for treatment. Or you might simply prefer the peace of mind of receiving access to expert care from the UK’s leading independent provider of private rehab services.

Using PMI for addiction rehab

Priory is also a registered and approved provider for all of the UK’s leading private medical insurers, including Bupa, Vitality, Aviva, Cigna, WPA and AXA Health. If you have access to PMI, either personally or through your workplace, you may need to get a GP referral before commencing with private rehab at Priory. Speak to your insurer for more details of their referral process.
