The decision to seek help for addition is already a difficult decision to make and then trying to determine how you can afford such treatment is even more concerning. Figuring out how to pay for drug rehab is often the one thing that holds people back from getting treatment. Most importantly, you can’t wait to get help. Here’s a look at a few of the ways you can pay for drug rehab and other forms of addiction treatment.
Paying for Drug Rehab with Existing Assets
The first step is to consider your existing assets. In many cases, when addiction has taken over and by the time you are considering rehab it’s already too late to use existing assets because you have likely used those to facilitate the habit along the way. In the event that existing assets are not used and you still have something left, it’s a good place to start when it comes to trying to pay for drug rehab. Some of the assets you may have which can be used to facilitate your addiction treatment include recreational vehicles, cash on hand or savings.
Think about the items that could be sold to cover the cost of treatment. Remember that material assets are of no use if you die of a drug overdose! Consider selling off collections or other unnecessary assets to cover the cost of drug rehab. You may have a garage sale, post ads for items online or find another way to sell off additional items to cover the cost of drug rehab.
Paying for Drug Rehab with Insurance
If you have insurance, there’s a chance that addiction treatment can be paid for with the insurance. Most insurance coverage, even state based coverage, will cover some or all of the cost of drug rehab. Contact your insurance provided to determine which type of coverage you have and how much coverage you have to drug rehab costs. You may be surprised to find out that you are almost completely covered or that certain aspects of treatment are entirely covered.
Looking for Other Options to Pay for Drug Rehab
If you’ve exhausted your savings, don’t have insurance or just don’t have enough coverage, there are still other ways to get the help you need. Consider talking with your local ministry or church to get some help. If you work, many drug rehab centers provide treatment on a sliding fee scale which means you can get the help you need at a cost that is affordable and based on your income. You pay only a percentage of the cost based on the amount of money you make and your available assets.
The bottom line is there’s never NOT a way to pay for drug rehab. In fact, many rehab centers even provide free addiction treatment. If you or someone you love is addicted to drugs or alcohol, getting help is the first step to becoming sober. Paying for drug rehab should not be the deciding factor that causes you to lose hope or not to try to recover.
