Maryland Free Rehab Centers

Living in Maryland generally mean living near water; between the Chesapeake Bay and almost 50 creeks and rivers, plus lakes, streams, ponds, and the Atlantic Ocean, there is a lot of natural water in the state. In a lot of ways, being an addict is like living under water. You have to push twice as hard to move half as much and you always feel like you need more air, more room to breathe. It is possible to get that space in recovery. Maryland free drug and alcohol rehab centers are staffed by professionals who know how to design an individual treatment plan to meet your needs.

Addiction is expensive. On a metaphorical level, you pay a price in every area of your life. You might pay in friendships or in self-respect or in wrinkles; but you pay just the same. There is also a financial cost. Think of the work you have missed or the things you bought when you were high or the items you bought to feel better when you came down from your high.

Given the many expenses of addiction, you may find yourself living close to or in poverty.  When you are in that situation, being told that you need to go to rehab is very frustrating. It’s all well and good to be pushed toward treatment, but what if you simply can’t afford it? What if you don’t have insurance to help buffer costs? What then?

Drug Trends in MarylandFree Rehab Centers in Maryland

Drug use by residents of Maryland tends to be less common than the national average. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration funds a survey called the National Survey on Drug Use and Health that provides state and national level information about substance use, among other topics. According to the 2009-2010 survey, 8.11 percent of residents in Maryland reported use of illicit drugs in the past month. In comparison to the national average (8.82), Maryland’s drug use was significantly lower.

However, Maryland still remains “one of the top ten states for rates in illicit drug dependence of persons age 12 or over.” This may be one reason that the rate of drug-induced deaths in the state of Maryland exceed the national average. In Maryland, deaths as a direct result of drug use occur in 13.5 out of every 100,000 people. The national rate is 12.8 people per 100,000.

This is why treatment is so important; it can literally save your life. According to data gathered by the state, public treatment center enrollments most commonly involve cocaine, marijuana, heroin, and alcohol as the primary drug of use. Intoxication deaths caused by heroin increased in both 2012 and 2013. This may have caused the increase in heroin treatment enrollments seen during that period.

What Are Free Rehab Centers?

Most commonly, free rehab centers are state funded or sponsored. This means that the costs needed to run the programs are gathered through government monies instead of through patient fees. Because of this, services can be offered at no cost to the client. However, this also means that some of the amenities you might get at more expensive treatment programs may not be available. However, all of the necessary components of treatment will be provided.

What Are Some Benefits and Drawbacks?

The primary benefits are obviously cost and care. With free services, you actually have access to care you could not otherwise have accessed. Any level of treatment is better than no treatment, so your chances of positive recovery outcomes automatically increase when you get treatment.

A possible drawback is a waiting list. Because so many people need free services and the funding they receive does not cover large quantities of care, free rehabs frequently have to rely on a waiting list to get to everyone who needs treatment. This means that you may not gain immediate access to treatment when you apply for it.

How Can I Be Admitted?

Private care admissions generally involve providing proof of payment and entering care. However, free rehab admissions are generally a bit more complicated because you have to show a need for care as well as a financial issue. Documents required may include:

  • Proof of assets
  • Proof of income
  • Proof of state residency
  • Proof of legal occupancy in the US

This should be sufficient to get you onto a waiting list or directly into care, depending upon the program.
