Free Drug And Alcohol Treatment

Posted on October 07, 2019

Recovery does happen for anyone, any time, anywhere and in countless ways. We’re sharing recovery stories in the news every day because we believe that there is a way for everyone.

Finding drug and alcohol treatment can be a maze especially without finances or insurance. Over the years, we’ve gathered a comprehensive list of providers that accept Medi-Cal and Affordable Care Act Policies for drug and alcohol treatment and rehab. Oaks of Hope can also accept Affordable Care Act Policies, so feel free to give us a call as well. Many of these on our list can provide free drug and alcohol treatment for very little or low costs. 

We hope the list and tips are helpful. If you go through this list and have questions, please feel free to call us for help. We want to see lives restored whether with Oaks of Hope or at any number of drug and alcohol treatment providers. To talk to Oaks of Hope call 866-705-4673 or our direct cell phone at 661-480-8156

Let us know how you’re doing!

MEDI-CAL and Affordable Care Act Policies

There is most often a waiting list to get into any of the below.

If you will call every day consistently, you should be moved to the front of the waiting list.

“NO DTX” means they do not do Detox, but you can always still call and find out if they have other provisions or referrals for you.

Detox is not usually needed for meth only, but that is to be determined after intake by urinalysis.

Detox is needed for alcohol, opiates, benzos, and a number of other substances used.

When Detox is needed, call American Hospital in Pomona first.

For initial Detox only, then transfer to one of the others below for drug and alcohol rehab
