Question by mattsmom: I am lookinfg for a free or very low cost drug rehab that would take my 22 y.o. son. We live in KY .?
MY son and is addicted to RX drugs. He wants help now but has no job, money or insurance. His wife is also addicted. He now wants help but they have run up all my credit cards to buy drugs so I can’t help him. He has friends in a rehab in Lexington so I would like to find one farther away from home. I pressed charges against both him and his wife for forging checks and they are court ordered to rehab, but that has not been any help. You still have to do it all yourself unless you want them to sit in jail with other addicts for 6 to 8 months while they try to find them a place. Not to mention the fact that you can get the durgs while you are in jail too.

You have to contact your county’s department of social services. They will get them into rehab if they qualify (sounds like they do) but you are right….you have to show proof that you are “indigent” so they can put them in rehab at no cost.

Remember this……there are 3 kinds of people waiting for beds in rehab.
1) those who are paying out of pocket get first dibs
2) those with health insurance get second dibs
3) no money or insurance get last dibs

It’s unfortunate…..but a fact.

Ok, you are just down the road from me (I’m in WV), so I hope this might help you. Contact your local DHHR office and tell them the situation and see what they can help you with. Also, the United Way offers couceling and drug rehab programs here in WV, and maybe they offer them in your area too. Call them and see what they might be able to help you with. They base everything on your income and charge you accordingly, so no income more than likely means free help. I wish you the best of luck, and your son as well.
