Although there is no such thing as free rehab, government funded places are eventually made available to people who show sufficient willingness and motivation to succeed and require intensive support. 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. This has to happen so your desire and drive to succeed are examined and to make sure that you are stable enough in your substance use before going to rehab.
It's crucial to take into consideration that on-the-spot admission is impossible and the process is complex and long. You will have to go to many interviews and have a lot of persistence, as we will show you below.
