I would like to get help for a loved one who cannot afford insurance but is not eligible for aid and desperately needs help. The have alcoholism and depression.

    Alcohol is a depressant and will further exacerbate depression. It can also increase someone’s potential to act radically under the influence. Community resources are your best option. Some townships will have free services for those that live in that zip code. Others will have funding available to assist. Also, some churches will have donations to assist or might have even a lay minister available for support. Checking what is available in your community is important. Start with the township, the village, the city. Usually one thing leads to another. Otherwise, calling counseling centers and seeing if they have sliding scale and how low they are able to go. Sometimes students under supervision are able to provide low fee counseling.
