What Are The NHS Options

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. Funding is in extremely short supply and there are sadly many complicated procedures to go through.

You will normally spend a period of time in community-based treatment before accessing rehab, in case you choose to pursue this option. 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 essential to remember that direct accessibility isn't very likely; in fact, the procedure can even be a long and difficult one. You will have to go to many interviews and have a lot of persistence, as we will show you below.


Alcohol Rehab Birmingham 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 Steps To Accessing Rehab At Nhs

  • You will need to follow a strict and diligent process that comes with a lot of dedication and determination.
  • 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
  • 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 may as well conduct an interview and do their own evaluation before you can begin
  • Drug services and local authority will at this point work to get funds for your rehab
  • In the case that detoxification is first required, your keyworker will guide you on appropriate possibilities and timescale and your detoxification preparations will be organised with the commencement date for your rehabilitation
  • Once your detox, if needed, is finished and the funding contracts and beginning dates are provided, you will start your rehab.
