What Are The NHS Options

Hard And Long


Whilst there does not exist something like a free rehabilitation, places funded by the government are from time to time made available to those who need serious support and exhibit adequate enthusiasm to achieve success. Funding can be really inadequate and regrettably, there are number of screenings to go through.

For you to get into this option you are expected to go through a community treatment program before proceeding into rehab. It is ensured that you're sufficiently stable in your alcohol/drug use before being referred to rehab and to test your willingness and motivation to succeed.


It's crucial to take into consideration that on-the-spot admission is impossible and the process is complex and long. You will have to go to many interviews and have a lot of persistence, as we will show you 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.
