For someone considering treatment for drugs or alcohol, the cost is usually a top concern. Many individuals may view the cost of addiction treatment too high to even consider. As a result, people don’t receive the treatment they so desperately need. The cycle of addiction continues on a path of destruction with negative effects on the individual’s health, family and career.
Substance abuse disorders can affect anyone regardless of socioeconomic status. Finding a way to pay for treatment can be a difficult task. The cost of rehab varies depending on which level of care is required. With Residential Treatment Programs offering the highest level of care, they are often the most expensive. Outpatient Programs may cost less, but they may not provide enough structure and support for the individual.
At The Detox Center of L.A., we strive to make addiction treatment as accessible as possible to those who need it. We accept most major insurance policies, available finance options, and private pay.
Paying for Treatment with Insurance
Drug and alcohol addiction is considered a medical disease, and such, treatment is often covered by many major health insurance policies. Most private health insurance policies will cover at least a portion of addiction treatment, while some may cover it completely. However, every health plan differs. Fortunately, The Detox Center of L.A. offers free insurance verification.
The top four private insurance agencies in the United States that include addiction treatment coverage are listed below.
