"EITHER GO TO REHAB OR YOURE GOING TO HOMELESS"
I'm 20 years old, and I just moved to Virginia from California, 4 months ago, to get off and away from my heroin addiction I had there. Since I've been in Virginia, I have stayed completely away from those same vices that got me here. Now... I was blessed to be taken in from my aunt and uncle who live here, in Virginia. Though, a couple of weeks ago, I had messed up again, and stole my uncle's xanax prescription. (Even though, it still doesn't validate what I did; I didn't steal them to try and get high; I stole them in attempt to kill myself) -_- That momentary lapse of reason, has now left me homeless... Stuck to pay the consequences.
It was a cry out for help, in the wrong way. Though I highly disagree with my family because, I don't feel drugs are my problem, it must be streeming from a deeper MENTAL problem, that no one will listen to me about, they think its just a drug problem. SO.....
My only option, in order to get a roof back, is going to rehab. Though, no one is willing to pay for it, and I don't have medical insurance.
I was thinking maybe go get Medically Evaluated and go to Day-Treatment help and meetings, then maybe sign up for school. But they disagree with what I feel I need, in order to help me.
So I need advice, on what some options may be (from a bystander's perspective). I'm not trying to find an escape out of this, I am willing to do whatever it takes to get my family's trust back.
So, I was curious about maybe, FREE? inpatient. or maybe an inpatient home, that is willing to work with people who have no health insurance, on a payment sort of deal.
PERSONALLY; If my only option is to go inpatient, I would rather take a hospital bill, than going to a free one. Feel as though, NONPROFIT is closer to PRISON than it is to HELP.
Just need some help. Thanks guys. heh.
