For private, fee paying clients, as of January 2024, there are no private rehab centres in the centre of the county. A lot of companies and referral agencies will advertise that there are in order to get you to call in. There are centres very close by and some are low cost. Private outpatient appointments and local drug and alcohol specialist therapists are also available. Call Paul to discuss your needs and treatment options.
