Where do we start?
(E St Louis, IL)
Where do we start? My niece is 25y/o with a heroin addiction. I have never faced something like this, and don’t have a clue where to start.
She of course doesn’t work, so no insurance, no income. I believe if we could get her away from her “friend”, she would be more than willing to clean up….where do we send her?
She has tried the methadone out-patient treatment, but that was an hour drive away, not to mention costly, needless to say it didn’t work out, so she returned to her “friend”.
Now with no car AND no income….we feel she doesn’t have a chance. Any info you can give would be very helpful!!! We are in the St Louis, MO area, in Illinois.
Thanks for any help.
