Fortunately, the Maine State Legislature has adopted progressive party legislation, and forces insurance companies in the state to treat substance abuse as a legitimate medical condition, deserving of equal funding to physical health conditions.
Even if you don’t have good comprehensive health insurance though, there are still a number of free or very affordable drug and alcohol treatment options within the state. Maine funds treatment beds at a number of subsidized drug and alcohol rehabs across the state, and even if you are not eligible for Medicaid, you may find that you can access these state funded drug and alcohol rehab programs.
In addition to state funded rehab, there also exist a number of charity or non profit drug and alcohol rehabs, rehabs that will take you in regardless of your ability to pay for services.
Don’t suffer with addiction thinking that you can’t afford drug rehab. You can get help!
