Hello Posters, I am a 60 year old man who has gone from Methadone being free to the point of having to pay $12 per day. I can no longer afford this. CAN ANYONE TELL ME ANYWHERE IN THE United States where there is a free Methadone Clinic or a clinic that is subsidized. I don't know what to do. Please try to help me. Thank you for any post or info you can give me.

Unfortunately, I don't know of any completely free ones. There are some state run clinics that will do an income based treatment, so some people don't pay anything, while what others pay can vary depending on their income.

However, if you do work or have some type of income, that's liable to be about $12 a day for daily treatments, anyway.

Do you have any type of insurance?

Methadone maintenance treatment provides the heroin addict with individualized health care and medically prescribed methadone to relieve withdrawal symptoms, reduces the opiate craving, and brings about a biochemical balance in the body. Important elements in heroin treatment include comprehensive social and rehabilitation services.

North Carolina accepts Medicaid for methadone. Cash price is 7$ per day w/o insurance. I have heard some states are income based on a sliding scale for those with no insurance. Does anyone know a state like this???
