What Are The NHS Options

Length And Difficulty Of Nhs


Even if free rehab isn't offered, some government-funded organizations are sometimes given as an option to individuals who need intensive assistance and those who manifest enough determination and drive to be well. That is because it is extremely difficult to get into these facilities since the funding is pretty limited.

If you decide to follow this recourse, you will typically spend some time in community-based treatment prior to gaining admission to rehabilitation. The reason is to make sure that you're adequately stable in your alcohol or drug use prior to getting referred to rehabilitation and to evaluate your enthusiasm to achieve success.


Recognizing that acceptance is not immediate and there is a long and complicated process to deal with is very important. You will require a lot of practice and need to attend lots of interviews as you will see below.


Port of Call will gladly help you find rehab facilities near you, but we are unable to speed up this process.


The Steps To Accessing Rehab At Nhs

  • You'll be required to adhere to a stringent procedure that will require much dedication and resolve.

  • You'll be required to schedule a meeting with your regional drug or alcohol services
  • 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
  • Then comes community care evaluation where you will be evaluated by local jurisdiction social services care executive or a local drug service in order to examine whether you fulfill the local authority's eligibility norms for commuter 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 next step will be to secure funding for your rehab place that is performed by the local authority and drug service
  • You keyworker will suggest you on suitable options and timescales if the detox is required first and your detox arrangements will be coordinated with your start date for rehab
  • Once your detox, if needed, is finished and the funding contracts and beginning dates are provided, you will start your rehab.
