Free/low-cost drug rehab in Washington county applies to a type of substance abuse treatment that is meant to be affordable for people who are dealing with substance abuse, over and above their homelessness, poverty, and/or unemployment.
Through this 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 people struggling with severe addiction also have financial difficulties - and addiction and poverty seem to be interrelated.
Today, it is possible to get free and low-cost treatment through a wide variety of means. For starters, there are several programs 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 Washington County that accept local residents into their programs. In such a program, you would have to provide proof of your identity, residency status, and current employment and financial status before you can be admitted for treatment.
Lastly, there are faith-based groups that also have addiction recovery programs - such as the Salvation Army and Teen Challenge programs. These programs and many other faith-based recovery programs are free or low-cost and distributed throughout the nation.
We can help you find the right treatment facility that best fits your overall needs and financial requirements.Call 1-877-814-3418
