What Are The NHS Options 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 is in extremely short supply and there are sadly many complicated procedures 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. 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. As will be demonstrated here, you are required to go through a number of interviews and a lot of patience is needed.

The Process Of Accessing NHS Rehab

  • This stern process demands a lot of dedication and resolve on your part and you will have to strictly adhere to it.
  • The processes will be different and are subject to where you reside, but are generally something along the following lines
  • The first thing is to schedule a meeting with your local alcohol or drug service
  • A key worker will be assigned to you who will do establish whether you need a detox or not by doing an initial assessment of your suitability 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
  • Then there will be an attempt to provide funding for your rehab centre by your local authority and drug service
  • 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
  • You will go to rehabilitation as soon as the commencement dates and funding plans are organised and detoxification (if it's needed) has been concluded.
