Free/low-cost drug rehab in North Slope county pertains to a type of addiction treatment that is designed to be affordable to individuals and families who are struggling with substance abuse, over and above their homelessness, poverty, and/or unemployment.
Through free and low cost treatment, many people who cannot afford treatment, can receive the help that they need.
Both as a theoretical and a practical notion, free/low-cost drug rehab is now considered to be a medical necessity. This is because most of the people who are struggling with severe substance use disorders also have financial difficulties - and addiction and poverty seem to be interrelated.
Today, it is possible to get this form of treatment through a wide variety of means. For starters, there are several drug rehabs that offer treatment at a discount or even free of charge to patients who are in poverty.
There are also various state-funded drug rehabs in North Slope County that accept local residents into their programs. In such state funded programs, you would have to provide valid identification, residence status, and current employment and financial status before you can be admitted into the program.
Finally, there are faith-based groups that run addiction recovery services - such as the Salvation Army and Teen Challenge programs. These programs are free or low-cost and distributed throughout the U.S.
We can help you find the right treatment facility that best fits your overall needs and financial requirements.Call 1-877-814-3418
