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. There are unfortunately a lot of hoops to jump through while funding is very 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 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'll be required to be present at many interviews and will need to display a lot of patience, as you'll notice 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.
