rehab without insurance
Farrah Downey Asks ...
Hello. I am currently trying to find my sister a residential treatment facility that is affordable. She has no insurance and can not apply for insurance as she is currently incarcerated. My sister has battled addiction for a very long time and recently began using and selling heroin. She needs help but I can not find anything that my family can afford with nio insurance. Can you please help me?

Thank you for reaching out with an important question. My heart goes out to your sister and to your family. Treatment of every form is very expensive and for the uninsured it's often unattainable. The best resource I have seen for the uninsured are faith based rehabilitation programs. The Salvation Army in particular has been helpful to a lot of folks I've served. The Christianity of programs like these is objectionable to a lot of folks in early recovery and I urge them to use the "buffet approach" (take what you like and leave the rest). Try this link from SAMHSA for further options: https://findtreatment.samhsa.gov/ Very best to you and yours, JIm
