How Can I Pay For Drug Rehab in Maine?

It might be difficult for you to continue struggling with the ravages of your substance use disorder in Maine. This is particularly true because your addiction might also be accompanied by several psychological, physical, financial, and emotional costs - which could have contributed to your unemployment, homelessness, and poverty. In such a situation, you may find it difficult to check into a rehab center due to financial reasons.

Research studies have shown that rehabilitation is an expensive affair and many people in need of it cannot even afford to pay for it. If you are in such a situation, you may try to quit cold turkey or using a home detoxification program.

However, this is not the most effective option. In fact, evidence has pointed out that both home detox and quitting cold turkey could be potentially dangerous or even fatal. These supposed solutions could also increase your risk of relapse.

The most effective alternative would be to check into a program that can offer you addiction treatment free of charge or at a low cost. Maine has many such programs, including:

a) Free Drug Rehab in Maine

There are several Maine addiction treatment and rehabilitation programs that can provide you with medically managed detoxification as well as outpatient and inpatient rehab free of charge. However, you need to find these programs.

b) State-Run Drug Rehabs

Maine also has state-run drug rehabs that receive funding from the state and the federal government. These rehabs can offer you the help that you need to overcome your addiction especially if you can prove that you cannot afford to pay for treatment.

There will be some level of paperwork involved before you can enroll into these programs. Further, you will be required to provide proof of your identity and show that you are not in a position to afford your addiction treatment.

If you have income, these programs could also ask that you offset part of your addiction treatment and recovery.

c) Faith-Based Rehab

Finally, there are faith-based groups in Maine that provide addiction recovery services. Examples of these groups include the Christian Salvation Armey that runs rehab programs for adults as well as Harbor Light that offers both detox and inpatient rehab services to patients in need.
