Having a clear understanding of the answers to the following questions regarding a potential rehab program can help assure you select a treatment program that is financially within your means. 

  • Do You Take Insurance? Many rehab facilities in LA accept insurance as a form of payment or partial payment for services rendered during treatment. There are, however, many rehab programs that do not accept any type of insurance as payment. If you do have insurance, it is best to avoid attending a rehab program that doesn’t accept insurance, as it will lead to a costly out-of-pocket bill.
  • Check Your Insurance Coverage Benefits: Make sure you fully understand the financial contribution that will be expected of you prior to committing. Many individuals assume that because their health insurance plan provides coverage for substance abuse treatment, the cost of attending a rehab will be fully covered by their insurance. While this would be lovely, it is not necessarily accurate. Every insurance provider as well as health insurance plan can vary regarding the limits of coverage for addiction treatment. Contact your health insurance provider to go over your plans specific coverage benefits to avoid being hit with a surprise bill.  
  • Do you offer a sliding pay scale? Many rehab programs understand the financial constraints that commonly plague individuals that struggle with substance abuse and addiction. As such, some treatment programs offer a sliding fee to its attendees in order to make the services available to them. 

The choices an individual typically makes leading up to the decision to attend rehab frequently leaves the individual in a precarious financial situation upon commencement, and attending rehab does not need to perpetuate that strain. According to the SAMHSA National Helpline, there are more than fourteen thousand drug treatment centers across America. Furthermore, nearly 70% of health care centers offer substance abuse and addiction treatment programs that are subsidized by the federal government. 

The California South Division Salvation Army, offer drug and alcohol rehabilitation support services to individuals struggling with substance abuse and addiction. Deriving from the Drug Free Anaheim project, the Salvation Army run three state-certified addiction treatment programs. They are known as the Salvation Army’s Adult Rehabilitation Centers (ARCs), and are among the largest residential substance abuse and addiction treatment programs available in the United States. These programs that are facilitated and run through the Salvation Army are meant to provide individuals in need with the proper tools to fight addiction without having the additional burden of financial pressure that one may otherwise experience. There is a common misconception that all rehab programs cost a small fortune, especially in California, and while some programs cost far greater than others, there will always be an option that is attainable. Most importantly, do not let the cost of rehab dissuade you from obtaining the help you need when it comes to treatment for substance abuse and addiction.
