New Life Center & Christian Mission is in Enterprise, Alabama. It is a 4 month long program and it is free. They no longer provide bus tickets to and from the recovery program. They will, however, pick you up at the bus station. There is a $35 fee for a Federal Background check (mandatory) and an $11.39 fee for the workbook that is used in the class.  In the Federal background check, they check for FELONY CONVICTIONS of violent crimes, crimes involving firearms, sexual crimes and child abuse.  Anyone with convictions of those crimes is not eligible for the program.  Their number is

This is a great example of just one guy doing something to help addicts in his community, hopefully there should be something like it in your community, if not, maybe you can do something?

THIS IS SO IMPORTANT, most treatment facilities do offer free or reduced cost opportunities. Often they call this a scholarship, it's basically a "pro bono" deal. Even some of the most exclusive in-patients facillites do this.
If you are in Washington check out Lakeside-Milam, they do it all, level 1, 2 and 3. I know that they give their services away free because I was there and saw it for myself. And the treatment is first rate.
