What Are The NHS Options before-rehab

Tough And Lengthy


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

You will usually, if you decide to go for this option, have to spend some time in a community-based therapy before going to 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's crucial to take into consideration that on-the-spot admission is impossible and the process is complex and long. As will be demonstrated here, you are required to go through a number of interviews and a lot of patience is needed.


Alcohol Rehab Derby 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.


Accessing NHS Rehabilitation - The Procedure

  • You are required to adhere to stringent and thorough procedures which can entail great dedication and willpower.
  • This process is most commonly very similar, but it can be different based on the area you reside in
  • The first thing is to schedule a meeting with your local alcohol or drug service
  • Getting assigned to a keyworker so that they can assess whether you are suitable to be placed into rehab and also see if you require detox
  • You'll be evaluated by a local drugs service/local authority social services care manager (this is a community care evaluation to see if you satisfy the local authority's eligibility standards for residential treatment)
  • 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
  • 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
  • You will go to rehabilitation as soon as the commencement dates and funding plans are organised and detoxification (if it's needed) has been concluded.
