If anyone has ever my brother, they know how incredible he is. He is smart, loving, selfless, and an all around great human being. He has his masters degree in child psychology. He has spent the majority of his adulthood working with severe needs kids with autism. He worked mostly with the kiddos who were a danger to themselves and others. He would connect with them in ways no one else could. Day in and day out Klaus would show up and help. Klaus was there.
Five years ago our father passed away. He himself was an addict, and he had a massive heart attack. Klaus was tasked with making the choice to unplug the life support machines and let our father pass more peacefully. This really hurt Klaus, and he felt helpless and never pursued therapy.
Klaus’s journey to alcoholism has been wrought with struggles, let downs, and justpoor bad luck. Klaus needs rehab and inpatient treatment. He needs therapy to deal with his wounds and to help him move past the pain and live a whole life.
Klaus wants to get help! Klaus wants to better himself. Klaus cannot get treatment without cash upfront.
He is currently in a detox center that does accept Medicaid, but they will just get him detoxed, they will not provide an inpatient care.
All inpatient care facilities require payment up from and they average 800-900 a day. So for three months of treatment it is around 90,000. That is for folks who don’t have insurance.
I am hoping for kindness for a person who would move mountains to help others, but needs help himself. Anything will help in his journey for sobriety!!! Thank you all! I appreciate every little bit of kindness!! All the money will go towards his treatment and bills he incurs while in treatment .
If you could share this I would be so eternally grateful!
