What Are The NHS Options

Length And Difficulty Of Nhs


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. They are not very well financed and involve a lot of bureaucracy.

For you to get into this option you are expected to go through a community treatment program before proceeding into rehab. 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 will have to go to many interviews and have a lot of persistence, as we will show you below.


Port of Call cannot intervene to make the process faster but we are willing to assist you in getting into a rehab within your locality.


Accessing Nhs Rehabilitation - The Procedure

  • You are required to adhere to stringent and thorough procedures which can entail great dedication and willpower.
  • This process is most commonly very similar, but it can be different based on the area you reside in
  • Making appointments to see your area alcohol and drug services officers
  • 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 will as well be evaluated by the regional authority community services care manager or a regional drugs service; this serves as a community care evaluation to determine if you meet the regional authority's acceptability standards for residential programme
  • The rehab will also do their own assessment by interviewing you before you can start
  • Drug services and local authority will at this point work to get funds for your rehab
  • If detox is necessary to be done first, you will be informed by your key worker on the appropriate choices and duration, plus, your detox plans will be organized based on your rehab start date
  • As soon as the financial planning and start dates have been arranged and detox, if necessary, has been finished, you can already proceed to rehab.
