Know any rehabs that work with couples who are addicts, and that are free? My boyfriend and I want to go to rehab but we are homeless and cannot afford to pay, and we want to go together...

Find the biggest city near you and begin calling mental health centers and drug programs to ask their suggestions where you can go for help. Try to get the name of the person you are talking to and write it down.

Keep trying different cities near to you and then further away.

Be prepared to spend hours and to make many, many phone calls. Be prepared to be frustrated.

If you are serious about this and willing to work to save your life (because it has become a matter of life and death...hasn't it?) you will succeed.
