Free/low-cost drug rehab in Union county refers to a type of addiction treatment that is meant to be affordable to people who are dealing with substance abuse, over and above their homelessness, poverty, and/or unemployment.
Through free and low cost treatment, many people who may not otherwise have been able to afford any sort of professional treatment, can receive the help that they need.
Both as a theoretical and a practical concept, free/low-cost drug rehab can be considered a medical necessity. This is because most of the people who are struggling with severe substance use disorders also have financial hardships - 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 rehab programs that offer treatment at a discount or even free of charge to patients who are in poverty.
There are also various state-funded rehab programs in Union County that accept local residents into their programs. In such state funded programs, you would have to provide valid identification, residency status, and financial need before you can be accepted into the program.
Finally, there are faith-based groups that run 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.
