If you are struggling with addiction in Georgia but you are also unemployed, homeless, or poor, it is highly likely that you might not be able to afford ongoing addiction treatment and rehabilitation services. This is because you will still be struggling with the financial, physical, psychological, and emotional costs of your substance use disorder.
In such a situation, you might be tempted to try to quit without any medical assistance or supervision - also known as quitting cold turkey. Alternatively, you could try home detox. Both of these options are not recommended due to the adverse and sometimes dangerous or even fatal withdrawal symptoms that are likely to arise. These options could also increase your risk of suffering a relapse.
After deciding that the time has come for you to stop drinking alcohol or using drugs, you should first check if you can afford addiction treatment. If not, you might want to look for some options that will allow you to receive the right services without having to pay for them.
There are many programs in Georgia that offer detoxification, inpatient, and outpatient addiction treatment and rehabilitation services free of charge. In such a program, you would not be required to pay for your ongoing recovery.
Georgia also has some facilities that receive both federal and state funding. When you enroll into such a program, you will also be able to start working on your ongoing recovery free of charge.
However, you have to meet certain set eligibility requirements before you can enroll into such a program. For instance, you could be asked to fill out paperwork to prove your identity ad your financial need.
Lastly, you can also find faith based organizations in Georgia that run addiction recovery programs. Examples of these organizations include the Christian Salvation Army and Harbor Light - both of which have programs that offer free addiction treatment and rehabilitation services to the residents of Georgia.
We can help you find the right treatment facility that best fits your overall needs and financial requirements.Call 1-877-814-3418
