What Options are Available From NHS

Tough And Lengthy


Whilst there does not exist something like a free rehabilitation, places funded by the government are from time to time made available to those who need serious support and exhibit adequate enthusiasm to achieve success. There are unfortunately a lot of hoops to jump through while funding is very limited.

For you to get into this option you are expected to go through a community treatment program before proceeding into rehab. This is designed to make sure that your drug or alcohol use is stabilized and to also test your drive and focus in succeeding before being sent into rehab.


It is essential to remember that direct accessibility isn't very likely; in fact, the procedure can even be a long and difficult one. As indicated below, you will be required to present in several series of dialogues; something which can demand a lot of perseverance.


We are happy to help you find rehab services in your local area while Port of Call is not able to expedite this process.


The Steps To Accessing Rehab At Nhs

  • You are to go through a stringent and tough process which calls for serious commitment and determination.
  • This process is most commonly very similar, but it can be different based on the area you reside in
  • Making an appointment with your local drug or alcohol service will be necessary
  • You will be given a key worker that will determine whether you require detox and will proceed with the primary evaluation of your fitness for rehab
  • You'll be evaluated by a local drugs service/local authority social services care manager (this is a community care evaluation to see if you satisfy the local authority's eligibility standards for residential treatment)
  • The rehab facility also requires you to sit for an interview with them so as to assess you before they can accept you
  • The regional authority as well as drug service will then try to obtain financial support for your rehab centre
  • In the case that detoxification is first required, your keyworker will guide you on appropriate possibilities and timescale and your detoxification preparations will be organised with the commencement date for your rehabilitation
  • As soon as the financial planning and start dates have been arranged and detox, if necessary, has been finished, you can already proceed to rehab.
