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.
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. 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.
It is essential to remember that direct accessibility isn't very likely; in fact, the procedure can even be a long and difficult one. You will have to go to many interviews and have a lot of persistence, as we will show you 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
You'll be required to adhere to a stringent procedure that will require much dedication and resolve.
The processes will be different and are subject to where you reside, but are generally something along the following lines
Making an appointment with your local drug or alcohol service will be necessary
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 will also do their own evaluation and an interview before you can commence treatment
Then there will be an attempt to provide funding for your rehab centre by your local authority and drug service
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
You will go to rehab once the funding arrangements and start dates are finalized and detox if required, has been completed.
