Re: Free rehabs in Texas?

There is a free rehab in Dallas & El Paso Texas called Homeward Bound. I will say upfront that this place is very hard core BUT has very good people working there. When I enrolled there was no waiting period to get in. I went there for a day and had to leave because of some things going on at the time in my life. I wish I had stayed and continiued there. They also train people there who wish to stay on and become drug councelors.

Re: Free rehabs in Texas?

Can you apply for state medical/drug treatment coverage at the local welfare department? If you are not working or not making much money you may qualify. I have the state pay for drug treatment and so do many of my aquaintances. Many drug addicts have lost everything including their jobs, savings, home, car, family, friends, and couldn't borrow a dollar to save their life due to people not trusting you anymore. That's were state medical/drug treatment coverage comes in and helps make treatment accesssable to people who need it and would never be able to pay for it on their own. First off, you need to find a treatment center in your area that accepts state aid. Go to google and type in drug treatment facility locator and like on the link. Then you'll type in your city and state and bunch of options will pop up. From inpatient treatment to detox to methadone maintainance. It's all there. Find a place that accepts state aid and call them and ask if they have a waiting list. Then go to the local welfare office and apply and tell them what treatment center you would like to go to. They will interview you to see if you have a problem with drugs, don't hold back tell them everything. It's confidential. You want to get approved so tell it like it is, don't be embarassed. Good luck.

Re: Free rehabs in Texas?

The Patrician Movement in San Antonio, Tx., I've heard, is an excellent program.....those without insurance and adequate income, I hear, can get in easier than those with resources.

My PC is not cooperating today or I'd send you a link.

If I find my printed out info. I'll post again with the phone # etc. Good luck!

Re: Free rehabs in Texas?

Hello just1more2ndchance. I live in Texas and just wanted to welcome you to the board. You are getting some excellent resources here from some very fine people. I hope you will share more with us as you feel fit. We all have the same goals here: Living happy, productive, drug free lives. I am glad you are choosing life over meth.


Re: Free rehabs in Texas?

I double checked with someone who currently works on the Texas Medicaid account (I used to for 7 years) and they verified that inpatient drug treatment for adults (over 18 years old) is not currently a benefit of Texas Medicaid.

30 outpatient visits per year to a psychiatrist may be covered depending on eligibility.

Inpatient treatment for other mental health diagnoses may be covered depending on eligibility.

Other programs may be able to provide assistance.

I hope you find a program that can help you.


Re: Free rehabs in Texas?

Your lil mama owes it to you to give you one more again if you are going to give rehab one more gain.


Re: Free rehabs in Texas?

I live in Texas too, and don't know of much beyond what Lor suggested to help....could you qualify for the psychiatrist visits? And in the meantime, have you tried meetings


Re: Free rehabs in Texas?

I know this sounds strange, but Minnesota has the best free rehab.


Re: Free rehabs in Texas?

Free or nearly free recovery options.
Of course...a bazillion 12 step meetings around the globe.

LifeRing holds numerous meetings which are by donation.
More on that...unhooked.com/meetings/index.html

16 Step Recovery

I'm always compelled to mention Dougs *Recovery Roadmap*

It's nearly free and offers a wide spectrum of recovery resources with a focus on meeting the unique needs of each individual.
The Self Help Recovery Guide is a good consideration for those who are unable or unwilling to seek outside help.

The Salvation Army provides an essentially free program although participants do work for the organization with a focus on work/productivity/responsibility ethics.

Here in WA it's fairly simple to get funded thru the ADATSA program, indigence being prerequisite, not a problem for most addicts seeking free treatment. www.counselingseattle.com...ADATSA.htm

In summary.....There's a LOT out there that is free.

Or...if you're willing to spend $16.00 and take the bull by the horns...this may work for you as it has for many others. www.rational.org/
