My 24 yr old son is a drug addict as is his live-in girlfriend of 7 yrs. Both are ready to detox and enter a rehab program. The difficulty is finding an affordable Christian rehab that doesn't require a commitment of 12+ months and a structered sober living environment for the two of them together after rehab. They are only willing at this time to commit to 4...possibly 6...month rehab program and realize they will not be together. My son also has a dual diagnosis that requires psychiatric medication and the only shorter term low cost Christian rehab that I have found...U Turn for Christ...will not allow psychiatric medications. And, I have yet to find ANY low cost program that will address both of them together. My son has insurance through the state of AZ, but his girlfriend has none. We are able to pay for a low cost, under $1000 per month, rehab and are willing to send him out of state.

Thank you for any help you can offer as I have been searching for a few weeks.

Hello Desertshell,

I know you are concerned about your son and his girlfriend.  It is difficult finding affordable care.  If you haven't already done so, check the Rehab Programs section of the Choose Help website.  Also, ask your son to call his insurance and ask them for a list of agencies in the area the the insurance cover.  Check to see if The Salvation Army have a recovery program in the area.

If there are not any affordable inpatient programs in the area, I would suggest finding an Intensive Outpatient Program (IOP).  IOPs usually meet for 3 hours for 3 days a week. Attending a 12 step meeting and obtaining a sponsor could help in the meantime.  I hope this helps.
