Federal Funding on Drug Rehabilitation?

Question by Kathy: federal funding on drug rehabilitation?

Best answer:

Answer by tina
The only funding I ever had for a rehab was only because I graduated to the State of California…I was at CRC as an N# and a 6 month residential treatment program was mandatory. I had state funding for the 6 months and then I got a month’s funding for sober-living after that.
Any local residential programs I’ve been to, I had to pay monthly once they allowed me to get a job and I couldn’t get my certificate of completion until I had a zero balance. Also, if it’s court-ordered, it may be different depending on the laws where you live. I’m in San Diego…
