What Are The NHS Options

Hard And Long


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. There are unfortunately a lot of hoops to jump through while funding is very limited.

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. 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 important to keep in mind that the process is lengthy and convoluted and immediate access is not possible in this regard. You will have to go to many interviews and have a lot of persistence, as we will show you below.


Alcohol Rehab Wiltshire may not able to speed this up for you but we are more than willing to assist you in seeking for rehab assistance within your area.


The Process Of Accessing Nhs Rehab

  • You will need to follow a strict and diligent process that comes with a lot of dedication and determination.
  • The processes will be different and are subject to where you reside, but are generally something along the following lines
  • You'll be required to book an appointment with your local alcohol/drug service
  • You'll be given a key worker who'll complete a preliminary evaluation of your suitability for rehabilitation and to find out if you require a detoxification
  • 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 evaluation and an interview before you can commence treatment
  • The next step will be to secure funding for your rehab place that is performed by the local authority and drug service
  • Where detox is necessary first, the key worker advices on good options and timelines which will be aligned to the date you are to begin your rehab
  • Once your detox, if needed, is finished and the funding contracts and beginning dates are provided, you will start your rehab.
