In case you are homeless, unemployed, and/or poor in Illinois and you are also struggling with the psychological, emotional, physical, and financial costs of a substance use disorder, it might be difficult for you to access addiction treatment and rehabilitation services due to a lack of finances.
When you find yourself in this situation, you might be tempted to give up because of your inability to pay for ongoing recovery. Alternatively, you could try quitting cold turkey or using home detox options.
However, you should know that these options are not always effective. In fact, they might pose their own unique dangers especially due to the fact that they could put you at risk of relapse as well as increase the chances that you could suffer painful and even fatal withdrawal symptoms.
The best option would be to get help for your addiction. There are many ways you can go about this and Illinois offers several options for people who are unable to pay for their addiction treatment services:
There are several facilities in Illinois that can provide you with medically managed detoxification and inpatient and outpatient drug rehab services. The good thing is that they will not require you to pay for these services.
Illinois also has addiction treatment programs that receive federal and state funding to keep running. These programs can provide you with the rehabilitation services that you need as long as you are able to prove your financial need and your identity. You will also be required to meet some eligibility requirements before you can join these recovery programs.
Lastly, some faith based groups in Illinois run recovery programs. Examples include the Christian Salvation Army that runs rehab centers for adults and Harbor Light that has both residential and detoxification programs. These groups can help you overcome your substance use disorder in Illinois free of charge.
We can help you find the right treatment facility that best fits your overall needs and financial requirements.Call 1-877-814-3418
