My girlfriends sister wont talk to the family and has been homeless for sometime now. She doesnt feel like she is worth getting help and neither her or the fam can pay for rehabiliation. Any advice or assistance would be great.

Like johnathan stated free rehabs exsist but after waiting for an open bed, she could have convinced her self it was no longer needed. Best of luck.

Yes there are free rehabs available. They are government funded and I dont think they would be very good. Although when I was at walmart yesterday there were very nice young men outside spreading good word who had went through rehabs near me that was free for them, and they seemed to be sober and happy about their choice.

I have seen some drug rehabs centers near me, that advertise for free. I know there must be some catch to it, like they only preach the 12 step program or something Not everyone believes in god. Not everyone wants to do the 12 step program

Unfortunately with free rehab comes a waiting list and if your girlfriends sister is a "flight risk" anyway it could be hard to get her rehab by the time her turn on the waiting list arrives.

I now that there is this drug rehab center near me that took in my sister when we didnt have the money to pay but she needed treatment. She had to hit her low point and 7 months after we did an intervention with her, she was ready for help. We had all followed through with our boundaries no matter how much she begged us for money or rides to pick up her drugs. I was very proud of our family. And even more proud of my sister for finally admitting she needed help and was ready to go into inpatient drug rehab for her addiction.

find rehab centers was the site that helped me deal with my dual diagnosis treatment. I used to think my best nights were the ones, I would spend getting high with my friends my friends before we would go to the casino and gamble. I remember how I would feel knowing I was going to have that kind of night. In all honesty I tried to do this every night, but having two addictions becomes quite expensive. The more money I made at the table, the more money I could spend getting high which made me want to gamble, It was a vicious cycle and I was so happy for the help I was able to receive.

To answer your question yes their are free rehabs out there; many times these programs are state funded and sometimes there are scholarships available if you can find them. If you can, find a reputable place like Betty Ford Foundation for the scholarships but let's talk about what you are really asking. This may be a long answer but if i can help you with your girlfriend's sister, the answer will be worth it. When someone has a substance abuse addiction. Cheap free treatment is probably the last thing the person needs. I know that sounds crazy, but the reality is this: would you recommend free cancer treatment if the person's life depends on it. What i am trying to get at is free isn't always good and in this situation, that is actually the case. Because those rehabs are free you may get treatment that is not truly effective. The employees that provide treatment may not provide the emotional, physical and mental support required to heal from this disease. If a free rehab treats your addicted friend without providing proper diagnosis, go through detox only to leave the rehab in the first 2 or 3 weeks, your friend is now at risk of relapse and overdose. May rehabs just think of heads in beds and not the person trying to kick a heroin addiction. That lack of care and commitment could be the last thing your friend experiences. That in itself is dangers. Please consider doing more researching about rehabs than just looking a free rehabs for the sake of being 'free'. Hope everything works out Laney and good luck finding good quality help.
