Tough And Lengthy
Even if free rehab isn't offered, some government-funded organizations are sometimes given as an option to individuals who need intensive assistance and those who manifest enough determination and drive to be well. That is because it is extremely difficult to get into these facilities since the funding is pretty limited.
For you to get into this option you are expected to go through a community treatment program before proceeding into 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 important to keep in mind that the process is lengthy and convoluted and immediate access is not possible in this regard. You'll be required to be present at many interviews and will need to display a lot of patience, as you'll notice below.
Alcohol Rehab Stoke 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.
