Funding is in extremely short supply and there are sadly many complicated procedures to go through.
You will usually, if you decide to go for this option, have to spend some time in a community-based therapy before going to 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.
