You may believe that the cost of rehab is too high for you to receive treatment. This is likely not the case. There are free and low-cost drug and alcohol rehab options available in the form of state-funded rehabs, charitable rehabs, and rehab scholarships.
Some rehab programs receive funding from the state of California to provide treatment to individuals with a low income. These rehabs are called state-funded rehabs. State-funded rehabs usually require you to fill out an application proving that you have a low income to be admitted into the program.
Some charities have a mission is to provide free or low-cost alcohol and drug rehab to individuals who can’t pay for rehab themselves. These charitable organizations can provide treatment due to donations. Just like a state-funded rehab, you may have to fill out an application providing proof of income.
