So you’ve decided to get help for an addiction to drugs or alcohol? Now you’re wondering where you can find a free program that will serve your needs. Fortunately, there are some options that can make recovery a possibility for you.
It is often difficult to find free inpatient rehab programs because they can be few and far between, but there are plenty of people you can talk to in order to find out more about the low-cost options near you.
Volunteers at community centers or shelters often know of places like these, especially if they have recommended them to other individuals in the past.
Sponsors at local support group meetings may also have information they pass on to members about rehab centers in the area that have little or no cost.
People working in your local city government office can be helpful and may be able to tell you about government-sponsored, free rehab programs in your area.
Doctors, nurses, and counselors at free clinics also will have knowledge of these facilities, as they have likely referred patients to them in the past.

You can also call 800-481-6320, and speak to one of our addiction and treatment experts immediately. We can help you find an inpatient program that meets your needs and your budget.
What About Insurance?
Even if a program is not free, often times insurance coverage can pay for all or most of the cost associated with getting treatment for an addiction to drugs or alcohol. The introduction of the Health Care Act in America has provided many residents with private coverage that helps to offset or completely pay for the costs of addiction treatment.
Most private rehab centers will accept insurance. If you’re not sure whether you have insurance or whether your health insurance will actually cover the cost of treatment, call our helpline toll-free at 800-481-6320 to speak with a representative that can assist you in determining your coverage and in finding a program that can provide proper care for your individual needs.
Getting help, whether in a free residential rehab center or a support group or an outpatient program can save your life. For immediate assistance in finding and choosing a rehab center that will make your recovery a reality, call our helpline toll-free anytime day or night.
