My brother in law is in rehab in PA. I am 1200 miles away and trying to figure out what I can do to help. I am new to this whole rehabilitation thing. He has been an alcoholic for ten years. and recently we just found out he is in there as well for cocaine. I am a mess i am not sure where to start. My brother in law has no job now and no insurance. Do i need to get a hold of Medicaid? I cant contact him because they say that he has to contact me but is there any way i can leave a message at the rehab he is at. I just want him to know that i am here for him. He has a learning disability as well so it is probably confusing to him the necessary steps. I would appreciate any answers or if someone could walk me through this whole thing. My mother in law is also having some difficulties at this moment so i think it would be best if my husband and i handle things.

thank you,

Hi TKenton, please take a look at my answer to your other message. Try to get some info from Livengrin. I mention them because they have a bunch of nice people working there who may be willing to share some info with you.
If it doesn't work out, let us know, and we'll find something else.
