What Are The NHS Options

Hard And Long


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. That is because it is extremely difficult to get into these facilities since the funding is pretty limited.

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. The reason is to make sure that you're adequately stable in your alcohol or drug use prior to getting referred to rehabilitation and to evaluate your enthusiasm to achieve success.


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 Sussex 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 rehabilitation will also wish to conduct an interview with you and complete their own evaluation prior to you can begin
  • The next step will be to secure funding for your rehab place that is performed by the local authority and drug service
