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.

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.
