What Options are Available From NHS

Lengthy And Hard


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. That is because it is extremely difficult to get into these facilities since the funding is pretty limited.

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 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.


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 are unable to speed up this process, however we're glad to assist you to locate rehabilitation services in your local neighbourhood.


Accessing Nhs Rehabilitation - The Procedure

  • This stern process demands a lot of dedication and resolve on your part and you will have to strictly adhere to it.
  • 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
  • Your designated key worker will conduct a preliminary evaluation of your aptness for rehab and at the same time determine if you would need to undergo 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 rehab facility also requires you to sit for an interview with them so as to assess you before they can accept you
  • The local drug service and authority will then try to get funding for your place at the rehabilitation
  • If you first need detox, your keyworker will suggest appropriate alternatives and timesheets and the beginning of your rehab and your detox appointments will be harmonized
  • You will go to rehab once the funding arrangements and start dates are finalized and detox if required, has been completed.
