Cost of Addiction Treatment
The cost of addiction treatment should never deter you or your loved one from getting help. Treatment is a needed step in recovery and, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, drug addiction treatment has been shown to reduce associated health and social costs by far more than the cost of the treatment itself. At The Road To Freedom treatment center our goal, always, is to make certain that clients get the best care possible. We work with you and your family so you understand your payment options, and we make it easy for you to get the care you need.
Factors That Affect Cost Of Treatment
Several factors affect the cost of addiction treatment at rehabilitation facilites include:
- Length of stay - Some programs are 30 days, some are 3 months. The length of stay will affect cost.
- Inpatient vs outpatient care - Inpatient, or residential, includes boarding and meals, which an outpatient program doesn't provide. This means the cost is higher versus outpatient care.
- Smaller program vs larger program - A smaller program is more personalized, but will most certainly cost more.
We Make The Financial Process Easy
Finding a treatment center can be stressful, not to mention the possible financial burden it can cause. At this difficult time, your focus should be on your health or your loved one's health and not whether you can afford treatment.
We do not want you to avoid getting the care you need due to cost. Road to Freedom offers several payment options to make sure rehab is affordable. We make the financial process as easy as possible; we accept many insurance plans and offer several self-pay options to make sure you get the care you need.
Does My Insurance Cover Treatment?
A common question is often, "does my insurance cover rehab?" In most cases, yes. We accept a wide range of insurance plans. Please contact our offices immediately to learn more about your specific plan.
Mental health, behavioral health, and addiction treatment are available at The Road to Freedom treatment center. Many times, private insurance plans, such as those sponsored by your employer or purchased through the Affordable Care Act, will provide policyholders with access to quality treatment. This may include financial coverage for medically-supervised detox, inpatient treatment, and outpatient care.
Understanding Insurance Verification
Many insurance providers require pre-certification of coverage prior to your enrollment in the program. We can help you with this process. You may also be required, under the terms of your policy, to contact the insurer directly to ask about verification. In other cases, we can do this for you for free.
Here are the simple steps in our insurance verification
- You call us, we gather information about your policy from you.
- We contact your insurance provider directly on your behalf, and gather information about your plan's benefits.
- In most situations, the process of receiving verification from your insurance takes less than an hour to complete.
- After confirmation of your benefits from your insurer, our counselor will call you to discuss what your insurance offers.
Our goal is to ensure your needs are met with the coverage provided on your plan. We'll discuss what we can offer as a result of your plan and, if necessary, any additional care we recommend beyond the plan's coverage.
Insurance issues we will discuss with you:
- In-network and out-of-network coverage you have
- Levels of care available with your policy
- The deductible you have to pay before insurance begins to take effect
- The percentage you may have to pay out-of-pocket
This process ensures you understand exactly what coverage you have and what you will have to pay for care.

At Road to Freedom, we accept most major health insurances, excluding Medicare. Insurance may cover some or all of the costs associated with our Christian Drug Rehabilitation.

Understanding the FMLA (Family Medical Leave Act) & How It Can Help You
Many people fear that leaving work to deal with substance abuse issues will cause them to lose their insurance. But the FMLA, Family Medical Leave Act, was passed to address this issue. The FMLA is in place so that people who have serious health conditions can leave work and keep their health insurance.
According to the United States Department of Labor, "The employer may not take action against the employee because the employee has exercised his or her right to take FMLA leave for substance abuse treatment." This also applies if you have to care for your spouse, child, or parent who has a serious health condition. Treatment for substance abuse may be considered a serious condition if the conditions for inpatient care or continuing treatment are met.
If you or a loved one has to take medical leave due to substance abuse issues, make sure you understand your rights under the Family Medical Leave Act.
