Where Can I Put My Mom Into a Free Rehab Program?

Question by Stealth: Where can I put my mom into a free rehab program?
Here’s the full story: My mother is an RN, very knowledgeable with prescription drugs and although she’s never had an addiction with anything drug related, she shows signs of hypochondria, somataform disorder and pretty darn close to Munchhausen syndrome. She recently just had a mental breakdown related to being “reborn” and saying she was “saved.” She was caring for my grandmother at the time who is nearing the end of her life and my family and I know that she can no longer care for her in the state that my mom is in because she is a danger to herself and my grandmother. She was baker acted because of her attack and taken to the hospital. After receiving medical care, they had her evaluated by a psychiatrist who believes that she is now normal. If she returns home, we fear that she may have another breakdown as she has always been anxious and a borderline schizophrenic. I love my mom and I don’t want to institutionalize her because she would probably turn suicidal. My mom is divorced, receives $ 350/week in alimony, is up to her eyeballs in debt (so we would like to have her declare bankruptcy) and she has no insurance. Where do we go from here if they let her out of the hospital without any treatment program? Our [extended] family does not have enough money to send her to any rehab center and the only one I found was a Salvation Army ARC in Jacksonville or Orlando, Fl. She is based in Ocala. Any immediate help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

HopeStories.ca – Verissimo’s Story – To the outsider he appeared to function normally. But behind the scenes, Verissimo was a full-blown cocaine addict. Once a successful businessman earning six figures, he never dreamed he would be homeless at age 42. Verissimo, known to his peers as trucker, grew up in a drug-infested community in the heart of Toronto. He smoked his first joint at age nine on a dare. What followed was 26 years of drug abuse and criminal behaviour. When I owned my trucking company my cocaine use escalated, says Verissimo. The drug kept me hyper and awake for four to five days at a time so I could make quicker deliveries. I eventually met a girl, had a son and stayed clean for five years. Then we separated. My son went with his mother. I was devastated. I couldnt cope and fell back into my crack cocaine abuse. The drug made me feel like superman—like I could handle anything. I started to hang out with shady people. Before long, I was involved in criminal activity. This led to a conviction and I was sent to Torontos Don Jail. For four and a half years I lived in a three-foot-wide cell. When I was released I was homeless. I had nothing and no one to turn to. My family had abandoned me years ago. While in prison, I was told of The Salvation Armys Turning Point, an addiction and rehabilitation program for men. I was familiar with the address. It was a shelter for the homeless in my old neighbourhood. I called my sister for help, something I had never done before. I was crying uncontrollably
