Free/low-cost rehab in Whatcom county applies to a type of addiction treatment that is meant to be affordable for people who are struggling with substance abuse, over and above their homelessness, poverty, and/or unemployment.
Through this treatment, many people who may not otherwise have been able to afford any sort of professional treatment, can receive the services that they require.
Both as a theoretical and a practical concept, free/low-cost drug rehab is now considered to be a medical necessity. This is because most people 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 recovery services at a discount or even free of charge to patients who are in poverty.
You can also find various state-funded drug rehabs in Whatcom County that accept state residents into their programs. In such state funded programs, you would have to provide proof of your identity, residency status, and financial need before you can be admitted for treatment.
Finally, there are faith-based groups that also have 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.
We can help you find the right treatment facility that best fits your overall needs and financial requirements.Call 1-877-814-3418
