What Are The NHS Options

Hard And Long


Facilities funded by government are sometimes available to addicts that are in need of extensive support and that display enough desire and motivation to overcome their addiction, even though we still can't talk about free treatment. Funding can be really inadequate and regrettably, there are number of screenings to go through.

You will usually, if you decide to go for this option, have to spend some time in a community-based therapy before going to 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's crucial to take into consideration that on-the-spot admission is impossible and the process is complex and long. You'll be required to be present at many interviews and will need to display a lot of patience, as you'll notice 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 are to go through a stringent and tough process which calls for serious commitment and determination.
  • The process is different from one area to another but will generally involve
  • 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
  • Going through an assessment conducted by local authorities, local drug service officials or a social services manager who are checking to see if you meet the eligibility standards for inpatient treatment in your area
  • The rehab may as well conduct an interview and do their own evaluation before you can begin
  • Drug services and local authority will at this point work to get funds for your rehab
  • 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
  • You will go to rehabilitation as soon as the commencement dates and funding plans are organised and detoxification (if it's needed) has been concluded.
