I have just gotten out of Wabash correctional Facility . I was incarcerated for 6 years for dealing drugs. I am now OUT of prison and on probation for 11 years. I am 24 years old and am back with my parents. I was stabbed a few times while I was incarcerated and I have a arm that I got stabbed in and was treated at Fort Wayne hospital but never received any therapy. I need health care desperately. Could you please direct me. I want to get my life on the straight and narrow.

A) I am glad to hear that you are out of prison and on the road to recovery. I can help you find resources for healthcare.

Here are some places you can go for healthcare:

  • Your local health department: Your local health department can provide you with free or low-cost healthcare, including physical therapy and mental health services. You can find your local health department by searching online or calling 211.
  • The VA: If you are a veteran, you may be eligible for healthcare through the VA. You can find more information on the VA website or by calling 1-877-222-8387.
