How Can I Pay For Substance Abuse Treatment in Massachusetts?

If you are living in Massachusetts and are homeless, unemployed, or poor and also struggling with the financial, emotional, physical, and psychological cost of addiction, you might think that it is not possible for you to enroll for addiction treatment. This is because you might not have any money to help you pay for such treatment.

Many treatment programs are expensive and it might be difficult for you to afford to check into any of them. To counter the effects of substance abuse, you might be tempted to try quitting cold turkey or through the use of home detoxification methods.

However, these options are potentially dangerous especially because they are not based on scientific evidence. In the same way, they might increase your risk of a relapse, or you might even suffer some painful and even fatal withdrawal symptoms.

Although you might be worried that you won't be able to afford treatment for your substance use disorder, you should know that there are several options through which you can get sober and clean free of charge. These options include:

a) Free Drug Rehab in Massachusetts

For starters, there are some drug rehabilitation and treatment programs that can provide you with free detox, and free inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment. These programs are offered free of charge in Massachusetts but you need to know how to look for them.

b) State-Run Drug Rehabs

Massachusetts also has some facilities that receive funding from the federal and state governments to provide addiction treatment services. You need to fill out paperwork before enrolling into one of these centers proving your identity and your inability to pay for rehab. Some of them might also expect you to pay for part of your treatment if you have some income.

c) Faith-Based Drug Rehabs

Last but not least, there are several faith-based groups in Massachusetts that operate alcohol and drug recovery programs. Examples of these groups include the Harbor Light detoxification and residential addiction treatment centers and Salvation Army rehabilitation centers for adults. These organizations provide residential rehabilitation and ongoing support services based on their faith traditions in Massachusetts and elsewhere in the United States.
