Drug Addiction Treatment
What should I do if I need treatment, but I don’t have insurance or any money.
The first thing you need to do is call a local drug addiction treatment center and tell them about your situation. The treatment center can then refer you to local or county agencies. Those agencies are often in a good position to offer help. One long-established drug treatment center told us that funding was not a concern for them because of the resources of the social service agencies.
One of the concerns that we have is people getting a short-term solution to a long-term problem. By that we mean that people might focus only on the immediate when making their arrangements with the agencies. For example, a person calls and seeks treatment. They go through detoxification, but they do not continue the program after those first few days.
Look for a long-term plan to help you with your need. Many treatment centers have various levels of treatment programs, ranging from intense resident treatment, to half-way houses, to out-patient treatment. That’s why we want you to call them first. See what is available for you and let them direct you to the proper agency.
Drug Addiction Treatment centers want you to receive help, so they will work with you and the social service agencies to put a plan in action for you.
