What Options are Available From NHS

Length And Difficulty Of Nhs


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

For you to get into this option you are expected to go through a community treatment program before proceeding into rehab. It is ensured that you're sufficiently stable in your alcohol/drug use before being referred to rehab and to test your willingness and motivation to succeed.


It is significant to remember that this process lasts a long time and that it is complicated, which means that immediate admission is impossible. You will have to go to many interviews and have a lot of persistence, as we will show you below.


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


Accessing Nhs Rehabilitation - The Procedure

  • You are required to adhere to stringent and thorough procedures which can entail great dedication and willpower.
  • The processes will be different and are subject to where you reside, but are generally something along the following lines
  • You'll be required to schedule a meeting with your regional drug or alcohol services
  • A key worker will be assigned to you who will do establish whether you need a detox or not by doing an initial assessment of your suitability for rehab
  • You will as well be evaluated by the regional authority community services care manager or a regional drugs service; this serves as a community care evaluation to determine if you meet the regional authority's acceptability standards for residential programme
  • The rehab may as well conduct an interview and do their own evaluation before you can begin
  • Then there will be an attempt to provide funding for your rehab centre by your 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
  • You will go to rehab once the funding arrangements and start dates are finalized and detox if required, has been completed.
