Options for NHS before-rehab

Lengthy And Difficult


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 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. 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.


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.


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