PAYING FOR REHAB | FREE TREATMENT PROGRAMS
If you do not have any resources for treatment and do not qualify for financing as an option, there are a number of free treatment programs that are listed via the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA). The free treatment programs for addiction and mental heath typically have a waiting list to receive a spot, but many people who are diligent and follow the instructions, can get onto a waiting list for a free treatment program.
Free 12 Step Meetings
12 Step Meetings are free and excellent option for someone who does not have any additional resources for treatment. The recovery community provides accountability and support and thousands of people have been able to find sobriety using Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous.
Free Smart Recovery Meetings
Smart Recovery addiction support group meetings are free and offered world-wide. These support groups are a non 12 step option for those who do not wish to participate in the traditional 12 step philosophy. Smart Recovery is also a non faith based option for those who are looking for this as well. The Smarty Recovery community provides meetings in most states and countries.
