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 is in extremely short supply and there are sadly many complicated procedures to go through.
If you decide to follow this recourse, you will typically spend some time in community-based treatment prior to gaining admission to rehabilitation. 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's crucial to take into consideration that on-the-spot admission is impossible and the process is complex and long. You will require a lot of practice and need to attend lots of interviews as you will see below.
