If you do not have insurance, there are still options available to receive substance abuse treatment. Here are some options:
State-funded treatment centers: Most states have publicly funded treatment centers that provide free or low-cost substance abuse treatment to people who are uninsured or underinsured.
Non-profit organizations: There are many non-profit organizations that provide substance abuse treatment services. These organizations may offer free or low-cost services to people who cannot afford to pay for treatment.
Sliding scale fees: Some treatment centers offer sliding scale fees based on income. This means that you pay what you can afford based on your income.
Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs): If you have a job, your employer may offer an EAP that provides substance abuse treatment services.
Medicaid: If you meet certain income requirements, you may be eligible for Medicaid, which can cover substance abuse treatment.
Faith-based organizations: Some churches and other religious organizations offer substance abuse treatment services.
It is important to note that the availability of these options may vary depending on your location. It is best to contact your local health department or a substance abuse treatment center in your area to learn about the options available to you.
