Facilities funded by government are sometimes available to addicts that are in need of extensive support and that display enough desire and motivation to overcome their addiction, even though we still can't talk about free treatment. There are unfortunately a lot of hoops to jump through while funding is very 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. The reason is to make sure that you're adequately stable in your alcohol or drug use prior to getting referred to rehabilitation and to evaluate your enthusiasm to achieve success.
It's crucial to take into consideration that on-the-spot admission is impossible and the process is complex and long. As indicated below, you will be required to present in several series of dialogues; something which can demand a lot of perseverance.
