What Are The NHS Options

Tough And Lengthy


Facilities funded by government are sometimes available to addicts that are in need of extensive support and that display enough desire and motivation to overcome their addiction, even though we still can't talk about free treatment. They are not very well financed and involve a lot of bureaucracy.

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. It is ensured that you're sufficiently stable in your alcohol/drug use before being referred to rehab and to test your willingness and motivation to succeed.


It is significant to remember that this process lasts a long time and that it is complicated, which means that immediate admission is impossible. As indicated below, you will be required to present in several series of dialogues; something which can demand a lot of perseverance.


Alcohol Rehab Suffolk 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.
