What Are The NHS Options

Hard And Long


Although there is no such thing as free rehab, government funded places are eventually made available to people who show sufficient willingness and motivation to succeed and require intensive support. That is because it is extremely difficult to get into these facilities since the funding is pretty limited.

For you to get into this option you are expected to go through a community treatment program before proceeding into rehab. This is designed to make sure that your drug or alcohol use is stabilized and to also test your drive and focus in succeeding before being sent into rehab.


It is essential to remember that direct accessibility isn't very likely; in fact, the procedure can even be a long and difficult one. You'll be required to be present at many interviews and will need to display a lot of patience, as you'll notice below.
