Chasing the Scream

What if everything you think you know about addiction is wrong? One of Johann Hari's earliest memories is of trying to wake up one of his relatives and not be able to. As he grew older, he realized he had addiction in his family. Confused, unable to know what to do, he set out on a three-year, 30,000-mile journey to discover what really causes addiction--and what really solves it.

Federally Qualified Health Centers

There is no lack of information on Federally Qualified Health Centers. However, what's out there is a hodgepodge of confusing, sometimes conflicting information that often leaves more questions than answers. We have endeavored to point you in the right direction to answer your questions, and we've included links to trusted resources to supplement the information on our site.
If you would like to locate a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC), HRSA (the Health Resources and Service Administration) has a health center locator tool where you can search for a health center by address, state, or county. 

FQHCs are in most cities and many rural areas. They will help you, even if you have no health insurance. You pay what you can afford, based on your income.
