Options for NHS before-rehab

Lengthy And Difficult


Even though free rehab does not exist, there are publicly funded facilities that are availed for those individuals who are looking for intense support and demonstrating adequate will and motivation to success at recovery. There are unfortunately a lot of hoops to jump through while funding is very limited.

For you to get into this option you are expected to go through a community treatment program before proceeding into rehab. The reason is to make sure that you're adequately stable in your alcohol or drug use prior to getting referred to rehabilitation and to evaluate your enthusiasm to achieve success.


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 require a lot of practice and need to attend lots of interviews as you will see 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.


The Process Of Getting Into NHS Rehab

  • This stern process demands a lot of dedication and resolve on your part and you will have to strictly adhere to it.
  • This process is most commonly very similar, but it can be different based on the area you reside in
  • Making an appointment with your local drug or alcohol service will be necessary
  • You will be given a key worker that will determine whether you require detox and will proceed with the primary evaluation of your fitness for rehab
  • Then comes community care evaluation where you will be evaluated by local jurisdiction social services care executive or a local drug service in order to examine whether you fulfill the local authority's eligibility norms for commuter treatment
  • 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 you first need detox, your keyworker will suggest appropriate alternatives and timesheets and the beginning of your rehab and your detox appointments will be harmonized
  • 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.
