How to refill my new Zoloft prescription?

I don't want to get into an argument about whether or not I should be on Zoloft, that is beyond the point. Anyways, three weeks ago I finally decided to get help for the depression that had come to control my life and voluntarily admitted myself into an inpatient mental health facility. After three days, I was discharged back into society with my new diagnoses (clinical depression, major anxiety, slight ocd, and possibly ptsd) and a one month prescription of Zoloft. As I said, this was three weeks ago and I am now about to run out of that month's supply of Zoloft. Yes, I do feel like the zoloft is helping me, even if ever so slightly, and would really like to continue with the medication/treatment. However, the only way I would be able to see the doctor that originally prescribed it for me would be to re-admit myself into that mental health facility. Unfortunately, that is not an option at this moment. I am not insured. Do not have a regular doctor. I am currently unemployed (part of the reason I needed the Zoloft in the first place was to get me to a mental standpoint where I could look for a job). And am kind of short on money. What would be the best/cheapest route to continue with my zoloft treatment? Do I just go to any doctor and explain my situation? Are there clinics for this kind of thing? Will doctors be willing to write me a new prescription for the Zoloft if they didn't write the initial prescription? Is this something I will have to do every month if there are never refills written? If it helps, I live in Phoenix, AZ.

Thank you for any answers, they are all really appreciated.

    Where I live (Massachusetts) There are Mental Health clinics where you pay on a sliding scale according to your income. I don't know what they have in AZ. Call your doctor or hospital and ask them about places like that near where you live. Do you live near a Walmart or Targets? Prescriptions there are only $4. I hope this helps you in some way. Good luck.

    You need to call that doctor or pharmacy near you, and ask for an emergency prescription. Maybe try to get on Medicaid, go see a psychiatrist that accepts Medicaid, and you will get your meds for free. That's what I do but it can be quite a long process before you can get accepted for Medicaid but it's worth trying so you don't have to pay out of pocket..
