What Are The NHS Options

Lengthy And Hard


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.

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 has to happen so your desire and drive to succeed are examined and to make sure that you are stable enough in your substance use before going to rehab.


Recognizing that acceptance is not immediate and there is a long and complicated process to deal with is very important. You will have to go to many interviews and have a lot of persistence, as we will show you below.


Alcohol Rehab Merseyside 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 is different from one area to another but will generally involve
  • You'll be required to schedule a meeting with your regional drug or alcohol services
  • You will be given a key worker that will determine whether you require detox and will proceed with the primary evaluation of your fitness for rehab
  • 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 may as well conduct an interview and do their own evaluation before you can begin
  • The local drug service and authority will then try to get funding for your place at the rehabilitation
  • You keyworker will suggest you on suitable options and timescales if the detox is required first and your detox arrangements will be coordinated with your start date for rehab
  • Once your detox, if needed, is finished and the funding contracts and beginning dates are provided, you will start your rehab.
