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. Funding can be really inadequate and regrettably, there are number of screenings to go through.
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 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.
Recognizing that acceptance is not immediate and there is a long and complicated process to deal with is very important. As will be demonstrated here, you are required to go through a number of interviews and a lot of patience is needed.
We are happy to help you find rehab services in your local area while Port of Call is not able to expedite this process.
