What Options are Available From NHS before-rehab

Lengthy And Hard


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. Funding can be really inadequate and regrettably, there are number of screenings to go through.

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.


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'll be required to be present at many interviews and will need to display a lot of patience, as you'll notice below.


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


The Steps To Accessing Rehab At NHS

  • You'll be required to adhere to a stringent procedure that will require much dedication and resolve.
  • Although procedures may differ depending on your area of location but it's more or less the same for most offering the same services
  • The first thing is to schedule a meeting with your local alcohol or drug service
  • 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 facility also requires you to sit for an interview with them so as to assess you before they can accept you
  • Then there will be an attempt to provide funding for your rehab centre by your local authority and drug service
  • Where detox is necessary first, the key worker advices on good options and timelines which will be aligned to the date you are to begin your rehab
  • When the financing arrangements and commencement dates as well as detox is done where necessary, you can the proceed to rehab.
