What Are The NHS Options

Lengthy And Difficult


Even if free rehab isn't offered, some government-funded organizations are sometimes given as an option to individuals who need intensive assistance and those who manifest enough determination and drive to be well. That is because it is extremely difficult to get into these facilities since the funding is pretty limited.

If you decide to follow this recourse, you will typically spend some time in community-based treatment prior to gaining admission to rehabilitation. This is done to make sure of your drug/alcohol use stabilization prior to being recommended for rehab and to confirm your dedication and readiness to get well.


Recognizing that acceptance is not immediate and there is a long and complicated process to deal with is very important. As indicated below, you will be required to present in several series of dialogues; something which can demand a lot of perseverance.


We are happy to help you find rehab services in your local area while Port of Call is not able to expedite this process.
