We work with the homeless and mentally ill in Lexington, KY. Most, if not all, are also dealing with substance abuse. One of our priorities is to get them into detox and rehab. Detox is already difficult enough to access due to lack of available beds, but without insurance, our population will be locked out of many - if not all - detox opportunities, some rehab, and most out-patient drug treatment programs if they do not have insurance.
