This is a very tricky situation to be in and finding a rehab is even trickier but can be done. It requires a lot of effort from your end to find such a rehab that will accept you without insurance. Decent rehab centers may cost you up to $2000 each week and some actually cost you more than that depending on various factors. Seeing this is a lot of money if you are paying directly from your pocket, here are a few tips that may help you find affordable drug rehab centers.
Before you even think of which rehab to go to you need to understand that rehabs like any other business are there to make a profit amongst other things. However there are some rehabs that are owned by individuals that have been though the recovery process too. In most cases most of them understand the situations that most addicts are in and at some point in their recovery got help from someone also. Most of these people can help you with your payment if you can’t afford, but want to get clean. The basic idea is that addicts in recovery are most likely to lend a helping hand to other addicts who need help in their road to recovery. There are many ways to repay the advance, like working at the center and so on. All that you need to do is ask!
There are some scholarships, widely referred to as charitable admittance offered at treatment centers, which can later be written off as tax. Take note these are not popular with most rehabs to make such arrangements but when they do they come in hand for those in need. Another option involves just looking for funding elsewhere. Form family members or well wishers that might be interested in seeing you get clean. Most people are willing to help but the only limitation is that they don’t know.
There are some state funded programs that may benefit addicts. There is need to do some research on the type of programs being offered and the type of assistance you might qualify for. Many states help addicts and provide low cost rehab programs. However for all these tips to be useful you need to be persistent as an individual in finding the right rehab for you. You need to understand that as an individual nothing will come to you on a silver platter even getting clean!
