Hard And Long
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. There are unfortunately a lot of hoops to jump through while funding is very limited.
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 is done to make sure of your drug/alcohol use stabilization prior to being recommended for rehab and to confirm your dedication and readiness to get well.
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.
We are happy to help you find rehab services in your local area while Port of Call is not able to expedite this process.
