Suffering from addiction?

Help.org is a group of Colorado medical professionals. Based on conversations they’ve had with addiction experts across the United States, the majority of people who need treatment for substance abuse disorders do not seek it. Though there are many barriers that discourage people from getting the help they need, cost is a significant factor. They created an online guide that provides comprehensive information on available care options and financial support, along with free Colorado resources.

The organization has also created a comprehensive guide listing top-rated and low-cost rehab centers to make it easier for those in need to get on track from substance abuse.

Since many people cannot afford rehab services on their own, Help.org only includes rehabs that offer payment assistance, such as sliding-scale fees or scholarships.
