What Are The NHS Options

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. They are not very well financed and involve a lot of bureaucracy.

If you want to go for this option, generally, you are required to devote a certain amount of time in community-based programmes prior to being considered for rehab. This has to happen so your desire and drive to succeed are examined and to make sure that you are stable enough in your substance use before going to rehab.


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 are to go through a stringent and tough process which calls for serious commitment and determination.
  • Although procedures may differ depending on your area of location but it's more or less the same for most offering the same services
  • Making appointments to see your area alcohol and drug services officers
  • You'll be given a key worker who'll complete a preliminary evaluation of your suitability for rehabilitation and to find out if you require a detoxification
  • 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 will also do their own assessment by interviewing you before you can start
  • 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
  • Once your detox, if needed, is finished and the funding contracts and beginning dates are provided, you will start your rehab.
