If you make minimum wage or close to it, you might already be having a hard time making ends meet. If you need help with overcoming a substance abuse problem, then you might not think that you will ever be able to pay for it. Luckily, there are options out there for people who make minimum wage or who otherwise don’t have much money. Consider exploring these options to look for a program that might work well for you.
Look Into Government Programs
First of all, you should know that there are government programs out there that are designed for people with drug or alcohol addictions who don’t have much — or any — money. These programs vary from state to state, and some of them are on an even more local level than that. Look into the programs that are available in your area to find out if you qualify for any of them.
Find Out if Your Insurance Will Pay for It
Even if you don’t have a big income, you might still have health insurance. If this is the case, you should know that it’s possible that your health insurance will cover some or all of your treatment. Contact a substance abuse treatment facility that you are interested in, and inquire about whether or not they work with insurance. You might just find that you will not have to pay anything out of pocket at all, and the facility might handle most of the paperwork with your insurance company, so you might not have to do much of anything to have your treatment covered.
Get Help from Family
Not everyone has this option, but if you have family members or other loved ones who might be willing to help you with the cost of substance abuse treatment, then you might want to look into this option. Your loved ones probably understand just how much your addiction impacts your life; in fact, there is a good chance that it impacts their lives, too.
Just because you don’t have a lot of money does not mean that there are no recovery options for you, even if you have heard that substance abuse treatment is expensive. Give us a call today at 800-411-8019 to find out more about options that might be affordable for you. Doing so can help you take the first important steps toward getting control of your life again.
