Access to our inpatient and day patient services differs, depending on how the prospective patient is to fund their treatment. Details of each main funding process are provided in the Referrers Guide attached. Funding types include:
- Private Paying Patients

Using an individualised combination of medical, psychiatric, educational and therapeutic interventions Ashburn has a good track record of success, particularly when it comes to those needing a period of inpatient treatment to break the addiction cycle.
With increasing demand for this specific inpatient service, Ashburn offers a focused, intensive time-limited, abstinence-based programme aimed directly at adults motivated to recover from addictive behaviours. Ashburn’s Addiction Programme has two distinct phases of Assessment and Treatment and follows detoxification which can either occur prior to admission or at Ashburn Clinic.
