Does affordable drug rehab exist?
Yes, affordable drug rehab does exist. There are going to be some treatment facilities that will offer treatment at a higher rate because they have specialized services or luxury packages. This does not mean that you cannot find a rehab that offers affordable detox and standard 30, 60 and 90 day treatment programs. At times people may become confused because of the abundance of media attention that is put on celebrity and luxury rehabs. Times are changing; rehab is not seen as treatment only available to the wealthy. There are affordable drug rehab centers you can attend without breaking your bank account.
Affordable Drug Rehab Tip 1 – Nonprofits
Go online and search for non-profit drug rehabs. You will come across those non-profit organizations that might be able to provide you with detox services and/or drug treatment services. Non-profit rehabs are known to work with a wide variety of clients especially at risk youth, teens, girls and families.
Affordable Drug Rehab Tip 2 – SAMHSA
The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) is the agency within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services that leads public health efforts to advance the behavioral health of the nation. SAMHSA’s mission is to reduce the impact of substance abuse and mental illness on America’s communities. On SAMHSA’s website you can use the treatment locator to browse their national database of all affordable drug rehab centers in the United States.
Affordable Drug Rehab – Insurance & Self Pay
Most people use insurance and self-pay to pay for their rehab stay. Even if you use insurance or self-pay you can make your rehab bill an affordable one. It’s always good to save up, ask family and friends for money and pay as much as you can up front in cash when you check in. There are also insurances that will pay more for certain types of services like detox vs. inpatient or outpatient, etc.
Be smart and choose an affordable drug rehab that also has quality treatment services. You don’t want to pay very little for poor treatment. It can be a doubled edged sword when you’re in need of treatment that you can’t afford but you don’t have to go into debt over it. You can raise money and pick and choose what you really need to become stable. After your stay at rehab you can enter the recovery community by attending meetings and finding other affordable or free recovery resources.
