Where To Find Free Drug and Alcohol Counseling

by baladmin | June 28, 2013

Is the cost of rehab keeping from seeking help? If you need free drug and alcohol counseling, there are options.

The thing is, a lot of times the people who have progressed to the point of addiction and alcoholism have done so because of a lost job and subsequent financial problems. The need for free drug and alcohol counseling becomes a necessity, but it seems to be the case that nothing is really free in this world.


So what can you do? Where can you find free drug and alcohol counseling when you need it the most?

Do you currently have health insurance coverage? If so, you may qualify for substance abuse treatment services under your plan. Your insurance carrier should spell out all of your benefits to you either in your Explanation of Benefits paperwork that you got when you joined the plan, or you can call and find out the details from a real, live person employed by your insurance carrier (example: United HealthCare, Blue Cross, Aetna, etc.)

Once you know what your insurance plan covers and what benefits are included in your plan, you can seek facilities that accept those benefits. By calling around to various treatment centers or checking out their websites, you can determine what rehab is right for you.

If you do not have health insurance, there are state-supported rehab options, and places that offer financial assistance to many clients. You can also immediately start participating in support groups like Alcoholics Anonymous, Narcotics Anonymous, or Al-Anon (for those who love an addicted person) which are free and open to just about anyone.

It is important to remember through all of this that your health and well-being, or that of a loved one who has been abusing substances, is priority. Finding the right treatment program is number one, and getting clean and sober must be the first step.
