Payment Options for Drug Rehab


Acknowledging a drug addiction is the first step to getting help in recovering from it. The next step is finding and entering comprehensive rehabilitation that will treat both physical dependency issues and any underlying psychological difficulties that are contributing to the addiction. If you or someone you love needs help with an addiction, you may be wondering how you will get affordable, quality treatment, but there are many ways that you can get help paying for drug rehab.

Traditional Insurance Options to Pay for Drug Rehab

Since 2008, insurance companies have been required to treat addiction like other medical procedures. This means that most major insurance policies offer funding for drug rehab to policyholders. Both HMO and PPO plans usually offer some kind of coverage that pays a portion or most of the cost of professional addiction treatment. At WhiteSands Treatment Center, we accept most major insurance plans and many plans from smaller insurance companies as well. We can work with your insurance to get you affordable addiction care in most instances.

Using a Flexible Spending Account (FSA) to Pay for Substance Abuse Treatment

You may have a flexible spending account (FSA) through your employer that lets you set aside pre-tax dollars for medical care. Many of these plans allow you to use these funds for addiction treatment. If so, you may already have funding for drug rehab available. Contact us for assistance in determining whether your FSA can help pay for treatment.

Other Options

We recognize that those in need of addiction treatment services may not have insurance coverage that provides adequate drug rehab financial assistance. Some plans offer very little coverage, while others may not fund select treatment options. In such cases, we may be able to assist you in finding financial aid for rehab treatment. In many cases, scholarships for treatment are available, and we can assist you in finding and applying for them. You should not despair if you cannot afford high-quality addiction help on your own; there are likely to be options that you may have not explored.

Aside from available drug rehab financial assistance, we can also work with you to develop a payment plan for your recovery. The most important thing is getting you here for treatment. We will work diligently to find rehab financial assistance to make it easier for you to obtain care. Our treatment specialists are available all day, every day, in order to help you explore your options. It is important to get help as soon as you can, as the long-term cost of drug and alcohol addiction is much higher than any cost for addiction treatment.
