Drug rehabs have a large range when it comes to the cost of treatment, this includes if you are looking to attend rehab on a budget. Each center sets its own price, and can range from free all the way up to thousands of dollars. This means that there is an option for everyone, regardless of their budget. This also means that the opportunity to get sober is available to anyone who wants to change their life.
Insurance is the most common way of paying for treatment. Most rehabs accept private health insurance depending on the type of coverage you have.
Different types of insurance coverage include:
- Private insurance (HMO, POS, PPO, etc.)
- State health insurance
- Government-sponsored insurance (Medicare, Medicaid, etc.)
- Military Insurance
Not everyone has insurance or a plan that will cover the costs of addiction treatment. However, most centers will work with you to determine eligibility and decide your best course of action. Many addiction treatment centers offer financial help, financing options, and even partial or full scholarships.
State and Federally Funded Drug Rehab Facilities
For those without health insurance and limited to no funds, there are federal and local programs that offer assistance. Many of these centers offer low cost and even no cost treatment options. To find a facility close to you visit the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s website and use their facility locater tool.
Access To Recovery Vouchers
Beyond local, government funded facilities, the federal program Access to Recovery provides vouchers to eligible individuals to pay for treatment. These grants are provided by agencies such as SAMHSA and the US Department of Health and Human Services in order to provide help to those without the means to afford private treatment. However, not all states participate in the program.
There are many local faith-based options that are usually no cost. These programs usually require a long-term commitment, and breaking that contract typically means you will be discharged and not be allowed back.
Possibly joining a clinical trial or experimental treatment could be another option for those seeking addiction treatment on a budget. These are usually cutting edge, although unproven techniques of counseling and/or medical approaches to substance abuse treatment. They are usually free, and some will even pay for your participation.
