Find Free Addiction Resources By State

Free resources are available throughout the United States to help youth, adults, and seniors who are experiencing substance use disorders (SUD). These free resources include addiction education, prevention, and intervention services, including dedicated programs for specialized populations, from military personnel and veterans to members of the LGBTQ+ population to persons with co-occurring mental illness and addiction.

In 2021, it was estimated that over 46 million people, or more than 16 percent of the US population aged 12 and over had some form of substance use disorder. But of that 16 percent, only approximately six percent actually received treatment.1 

While the decision to seek or not to seek treatment is an intensely personal one, it’s a safe assumption that, for many, the often prohibitive cost of care is a significant obstacle. In the US, the average per person cost of rehab varies from $5,700 per month for outpatient treatment and more than $12,500 per month for inpatient care.

But the cost of care does not have to deprive you or someone you love from the healthy, happy, dependency-free tomorrow you deserve. A wide array of free resources is available in every state across the US, including connections to crisis intervention and medical detox services, inpatient and outpatient care, and dedicated programs for special populations, from adolescents and seniors to trauma survivors and persons with co-occurring addiction and mental illness.

Free National Resources

In addition to the myriad of free state resources for youth and adults seeking addiction recovery support, a number of national programs provide prevention, education, intervention, and treatment services and referrals at no cost to clients. These include:

SAMHSA’s National Helpline: This helpline provides 24/7 access to information and support, including free referrals to local programs designed to address callers’ unique recovery needs and goals. The service is free, confidential, and available 365 days per year in both English and Spanish.

988 Suicide and Crisis Lifeline: This toll-free hotline provides support and emergency referrals for persons in crisis, including local access to specialized programs for high-risk populations, including veterans and military personnel, members of the LGBTQ+ community, pregnant women, and persons with co-occurring addiction and mental illness. The program is confidential and operates 24 hours per day, 365 days per year, including services for callers who speak languages other than English, have a neurodiversity, or have a hearing impairment.

Substance Use Disorders (NAMI): The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) provides education and support for persons with mental illness and/or addiction, including access to local programs providing mental and behavioral health services. They offer linkages to education, prevention, intervention, and treatment services for youth, adults, and special needs populations.
