Moms Drug Treatment

Hey, my name is Chase. I don't know where to start here...My mom has been struggling with a pain killer addiction for 15+ years now and I'm at a point where I'm swallowing my pride to finally ask for help.
 
What started off as just taking medicine to relieve pain from 2 seperate car accidents has turned into a drug that has slowly taken my moms life slowly, but surely. I have watched my mom deteriorate over the past ten years not knowing that drugs were the cause of it until a few years ago when she came out and told me and my sister. The worst part about the situation is this isn't something she wanted nor asked for , but came as a result of doctors over prescribing medication, and instead of offering real treatment, they dope people up to put money in their pockets. My mom never had the intention to get hooked on opioids, and is now at a point where she knows she needs to get off them, but can't without the help of a treatment facility. She has been crying out for help the past few years, and with treatment facilities and rehabs being so expensive(she has no insurance) it's very difficult to get into one that can provide the help she needs.
 
My mom is getting older(she is almost 60 now) and watching her not only fall apart mentally, but physically is not something I want to see at this age. I do not want my mom passing away and living the last 15-20 years of her life in misery when I know help is available. I want to see her at her best like I remember as a child , and I'm hoping that I can get some help doing so.

After talking with some wellness centers, and rehab facilities in Atlanta, treatment can be up to $1000 a day, or about $10000 for a full thirty day program. 
 
Thank you!
