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. They are not very well financed and involve a lot of bureaucracy.
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 significant to remember that this process lasts a long time and that it is complicated, which means that immediate admission is impossible. As will be demonstrated here, you are required to go through a number of interviews and a lot of patience is needed.
