How Is Treatment Paid For

When individuals facing addiction start thinking about recovery, one of the first questions they may ask is, “How will I pay for treatment?” There is no doubt that addiction has been looming over you, taking a toll on your life. The toll of addiction reaches you physically, emotionally, spiritually, and most certainly, financially. Beyond the mental and physical anguish of addiction is the heartache of losing the life you once held dear. Whether addiction came to you in the form of drugs or alcohol, you are paying dearly for it.

How is treatment paid for

The investment into rehabilitation and your sobriety can be costly, but it isn’t always. For a successful recovery leading to long term sobriety, your personalized treatment plan may include some combination of treatment and therapies listed below.

  • Medical detox
  • Intensive Outpatient Therapy
  • Residential Inpatient Treatment
  • Group, Family, and Individual Counseling
  • Medication Therapy
  • Aftercare and Relapse Prevention

Because treatment plans are tailored to the individual needs and goals of every client, it’s tough to give an accurate estimate of your investment. Feeling overwhelmed when thinking about the price tag associated with treatment is natural. Per the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) performed by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) 2013, not knowing where to get assistance, not being ready to stop using, and the cost are the biggest barriers to securing treatment.

There’s no denying that an investment into addiction treatment comes with a hefty price tag. The Healthcare Cost Institute estimated that in 2011, the average out-of-pocket costs for substance abuse treatment per admission was $900, including co-payments, deductibles, and co-insurance. However, the long-term costs of addiction are arguably higher, financially and otherwise. If you don’t get the help you need, you risk losing a lot more than a financial investment into your future.

So How Much Will My Treatment Cost?

Unfortunately, addiction treatment doesn’t come with a stock price tag, it’s not one size fits all. Your treatment plan will be tailored to you. A lot depends on where you are at with your addiction, your level of dependency, your want and ability to commit to long-term recovery, and the type of treatment that will best suit your circumstances and needs. The type of addiction you have will have some influence as well as whether or not you present with a dual diagnosis after medical detox. Treating mental health-related issues as part of the dual diagnosis program is complex and presents unique challenges that we help you get through in the best way for you. Your total price can also depend on medications and the length of your stay. While you may not need all or some of our treatment options, you true investment depends on what you do need.

How Will I Pay for My Treatment?

At Chiron, we work hard in building and fostering relationships with those in our professional, medical community. As such, we have partnered with several major insurance carriers to bring accessibility to as many people as possible. The Affordable Care Act also stipulates that behavioral treatment and some detox programs are coverable expenses through most healthcare plans. We make all attempts to bring treatment to those in need through some combination of insurance benefits and/or financial arrangements.

For more information on paying for treatment, please chat with our knowledgeable staff members about your individual needs and circumstances. We always have staff awaiting your call.
