Free/low-cost drug rehab in Lackawanna county refers to a type of substance abuse 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 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 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 this form of treatment through a wide variety of means. First off, 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 drug rehabs in Lackawanna County that accept state residents into their programs. In such state funded programs, you would have to provide proof of your identity, residence status, and financial need before you can be admitted into the program.
Finally, there are faith-based groups that also have addiction recovery services - 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
