What is Drug addiction?
Drug addiction is a complex brain disease. it is characterized by compulsive, at time uncontrollable, drug craving, seeking, and use that persist even in the face of extremely negative consequences. Drug seeking becomes compulsive, in large part as a result of the effects of prolonged drug use on brain functioning and, thus, on behavior. For many people, drug addiction becomes chronic, with relapses possible even after long periods of abstinence. 
Who do I call for help?
Community Mental Health provides an excellent starting point for the tri-county region.  Call the Community Mental Health Care Coordination Center at 1-888-230-7629.
What will happen when I call?                                                                                                                                                                  
You will be asked a few questions, then an appointment will be scheduled for an initial assessment. Based on the results of that assessment, a recommendation will be made for appropriate treatment. 
What if I can't pay?
Services are covered by most major health insurers, including Medicaid. A sliding fee scale is used to ensure that services are affordable and accessible to all families. No one will be denied services due to the lack of financial resources. 
What if I don't have transportation to the treatment facility? 

There are options available to help you get here.
I am pregnant and need substance abuse treatment.  Can I get help?
