Hard And Long


Even though free rehab does not exist, there are publicly funded facilities that are availed for those individuals who are looking for intense support and demonstrating adequate will and motivation to success at recovery. Funding can be really inadequate and regrettably, there are number of screenings to go through.

You will normally spend a period of time in community-based treatment before accessing rehab, in case you choose to pursue this option. This is done to make sure of your drug/alcohol use stabilization prior to being recommended for rehab and to confirm your dedication and readiness to get well.


Recognizing that acceptance is not immediate and there is a long and complicated process to deal with is very important. You will have to go to many interviews and have a lot of persistence, as we will show you below.


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


Accessing Nhs Rehabilitation - The Procedure

  • You will need to follow a strict and diligent process that comes with a lot of dedication and determination.
  • This process is most commonly very similar, but it can be different based on the area you reside in
  • The first thing is to schedule a meeting with your local alcohol or drug service
  • Getting assigned to a keyworker so that they can assess whether you are suitable to be placed into rehab and also see if you require detox
  • 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 rehabilitation will also wish to conduct an interview with you and complete their own evaluation prior to you can begin
  • The regional authority as well as drug service will then try to obtain financial support for your rehab centre
  • Where detox is necessary first, the key worker advices on good options and timelines which will be aligned to the date you are to begin your rehab
  • 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.
