Low cost, No cost Alcohol and Drug Treatment Directory
Treatment, Sober Living, Halfway Homes, Family Help, Online Resources and More.
This Directory is a work-in-progress. We’ve started with our original Directory “Drug Addiction Help Recovery Resources for Friends, Families and Employers” and deleted any resources that are HIGH priced or cost a LOT.
Please help by sharing your referrals with us.
There are so many who need this information!
WE NEED YOUR HELP!—if you know of a great NO cost or low-cost resource for treatment for an addict and/or help and support for families of addicts, contact us with a link to the resource website and a short description of what this resource offers and why you would recommend it. We will research it and add it to the list.
Our vision is to make this the most comprehensive list of nationwide low-cost resources available!
> Many thanks to our friends at Love First for sharing some of their favorites with us.
Keep scrolling—this is a long document . . . and it’s going to be a LOT longer!
