I recently relapsed but now I have the desire to quit like never before.

Hey guys I've relapsed after 9 months being clean due to jail. At work which isn't in a very safe area I meet someone who wouldn't stop asking what I wanted. Eventually I caved, but this time I get 100 times sicker if I'm not high and the paranoia is also extensively worse. I have no kind of insurance, so what should I do?????

  • @Newbegings... Welcome to the community and thanks for sharing with us. I'm sorry that you're struggling. One question for you: Are you in the United States?
  • @Newbegings... If you feel like you need treatment, I recommend checking out the Treatment Locator tool on the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration website. Here's the link:

    If you put your zip code in, it will show you all the treatment facilities in your area. It also gives information in each one, including which ones offer low-cost, no-cost, or sliding-scale fees for people who don't have insurance.

    You had 9 months of clean time under your belt, so you know you can do it again. Maybe all you need is a little help. Remember: You don't have to do this alone.

    We're here to encourage you, help you, and support you, my friend. Reach out anytime. 

    Sending you positive vibes and lots of hope.
  • @Newbegings hello and welcome.  thank you for sharing.  i am sure you want to be done with feeling so miserable. 

    i agree with dean that treatment is a great option... not sure if you did any recovery work while in jail, but recovery is an ongoing process.

    don't hesitate to reach out for help in your community...NA group...etc.

    we are here for you anytime!
