The lessening access to needed care...

A friend called me this morning looking for some type of detox or drug rehab program for a relative. The problem that they faced is one that many currently face, no health insurance. We can debate if this is something that should be provided by government; federal, state or local, but the reality is there will always be those in our society who need help that are not able to pay for it. Some sort of organized assistance needs to exist, either through voluntary charitable aid or as it is now. Unfortunately with some of the budgetary cuts states are facing, people are having a more difficult time finding programs including addiction help that they can afford.
