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.
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. 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 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.
We are happy to help you find rehab services in your local area while Port of Call is not able to expedite this process.
