Drug Treatment for the Uninsured
Anna Deeds Says...
Thank you for your question. You are very caring to try to help your brother. He will need all the support he can get. I think it's wonderful that he is willing to attend such a long treatment program. The longer the treatment he does and the more work he puts into it, the better chance he will have at staying in recovery.
Addiction is considered a disease by the medical community. Because of this, David would be considered to have a disability that needs medical treatment. He should qualify for state funded medical assistance.
I found a website called 211 Help in Texas and have included a link through which you can search for treatment in your area. You can also dial 211 on your phone for information. You may also want to do a search for drug and alcohol treatment through your local county. Many counties will fund treatment for people who don't qualify for state assistance.
I hope this helps and good luck.
