Affordable Inpatient Rehab Options
The three variables in finding a good rehab that people mostly look for are, the rehab’s cost, the rehab’s effectiveness, and the rehab’s resources. Finding a rehab that is affordable and has the resources a person needs to learn to live a drug free life can be difficult, but it is doable.
Different options a person who does not have a large amount of money to spend on a rehab can consider are:
Charity-based free rehabs: There are charities such as the Salvation Army that offer free drug and alcohol rehabs for people who need to get clean. These rehabs will provide a person with a place to stay, food and medical supervision for their detox, but they are typically not long programs and a person usually has to leave once they have finished their detox. Charity based rehabs are usually crowded and although a person may have a safe and healthy detox there, they will not receive the one on one education and therapy they may need to remain sober. However, a person could detox at a free rehab then join a free support group such as Alcoholics Anonymous or Narcotics Anonymous in attempt to help them remain drug or alcohol free.
Insurance coverage: If a person has insurance they should check with their provider to see if they will cover any of their rehab expenses. Most insurance companies only cover outpatient rehab expenses but some will cover inpatient rehab expenses if they feel it is worth their while to do so.
Sliding scale rehabs: Sliding scale rehabs will charge a person admissions based on their income. These rehabs are extremely beneficial to people who seek the full inpatient rehab experience but cannot afford the price of it outright. Some of these rehabs will allow a person in for close to nothing and they will provide a person with all of the resources and therapy they need to get clean.
Although affordable inpatient rehabs seems like an unobtainable goal, it is obtainable if a person puts in the research. There is thousands of inpatient rehabs located throughout the country and a person should aim to find a rehab that they can afford and be comfortable in while going through their treatment. Sites like FreeRehabCenters.org will provide a person with information regarding affordable rehab centers in their hometown.
According to the National Council on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence, more than 17 million Americans suffer from an alcohol addiction and more than 20 million Americans aged 12 or older have used an illegal drug in the last month, and 48 million people aged 12 or older have use prescription drugs illegally.
Alcohol and drug addiction plaques the lives of millions of Americans and only a small percentage of people get help. There are affordable inpatient rehab programs and a person should seek out help before they cause permanent damage to their body.
