I found a way home, now what?

So I got a way to get back to the UK. So now what, I and in the UK then go to the doctors? My problem with this is I do not want to be around the people I know are other alcoholics in my small town, I know they only ever use the assistance as a vacation and an excuse to carry on getting sickness benefit, I can't be around that. So what are my options to get into a detox and rehab program. I've done the 10 day Dtox before but that just wasn't enough, as soon as I was out and around the booze it took over. I need a long term rehab but have no money. WHo can I speak to about this in the Northeast of England.
There is also the problem of financing, I need to work, obviously this is not possible if in rehab, so for people with no savings how can I get around that.
I will be back next week I just want to have a plan. I don't think the doctor will help much, last time I had to wait 2 weeks for Al Abuse team to visit me which within this time I had lost interest in getting sober and was off on one again.
I need to arrive and get into something instantly so my feet don't get the chance to touch the ground, is this possible? I fear otherwise I will be sucked down again very easily.

I'm not from the UK but there are some UK links here down the bottom of the first post-

You may have to do a bit of leg work to find out all your options, Scrub.

If they're any good, your Dr should know some more, or be able to find out

The Salvation Army offers assistance all over the world, and they offer free rehab for anyone who wants it.
