Rehab for the Uninsured
is rehab an option for someone such as I, who has no income and no health insurance?

Hi there and thanks for writing. This is a question I get a lot and I wish I had more options to share. The very best resource I know for those seeking to overcome addiction without insurance is the Salvation Army. Now - there are a myriad of needs and resources that are a part of recovery - we can seek low cost and no cost medical care in local clinics for example. I am assuming that what you need is rehab and that you may or may not be medically compromised even after your initial period of sobriety. I urge folks to check with local hospitals and churches. Of course, the greatest resource to those in recovery remains the good people of AA and NA and if I were overwhelmed and/or unsure where to start - that's where I'd begin.
Good luck to you and blessed be - lots of meetings and lots of Grace may well be enough to get you to the new life you've been wanting :)
