Financing Residential Treatment - HOW?

A young woman who is in residential / inpatient treatment - and desperately needs it - doesn't have the money for the insurance co-payments, which run aprox $160.00 per day. ( x 30 - 60 days - we're not sure yet.) Once she's out, she'll have the expense of all the follow-up care (MD, individual therapist, nutritional counseling, group.)  Where are people getting the money to pay for treatment?  Are there any resources I can contact to ask for financial aide?

Thanks so much for any guidance you can give.

Dear kalola,

There are still a few organizations that offer healthcare or medical loan for those seeking medical/psychiatric treatment.  Try researching different medical loans online to see if there is one right for your needs.
