What Are The NHS Options before-rehab

Length And Difficulty Of NHS


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

If you decide to follow this recourse, you will typically spend some time in community-based treatment prior to gaining admission to rehabilitation. 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.


Recognizing that acceptance is not immediate and there is a long and complicated process to deal with is very important. You'll be required to be present at many interviews and will need to display a lot of patience, as you'll notice below.
