    I NEED HELP, I'M DESPERATE

    The conclusion has been made that I need to go to a place to get away from here. Not a hospital or psych ward, more like the places people go for alcohol or drugs. I do not drink or have ever in my life touched an illegal drug.

    I found a couple of places on the internet but one was 59,000 dollars for 30 days and they do not accept insurance. I have great insurance as well as Medicare because I'm on disability.

    Does anyone have any info ?

    Thanks
    Allison

    That charge sounds astronomical and I can't imagine what they would provide for that high a fee. The best thing would be to get a referral from a healthcare professional with whom you have been in treatment or a social service agency in your area.

    In many cities dialing 211 will get you in touch with social services you need.

    I kind of got the impression these places are for celebrities or moguls.
    He was really snotty to me too !!

    I went to school with all the Kennedy kids and when Joan got really bad, they snuck her into a facility in CT on the QT. Absolute privacy forever. All I saw was people getting massages.
