  • Roughly 235,000 people had used marijuana in the past year.
  • An estimated 3,000 people reported past-year heroin abuse.
  • Around 27,000 individuals used cocaine that year.

Nearly 9,000 people were receiving substance abuse treatment services on a single day count in 2015, which was a decrease a single day count in 2013. Access to alcohol and drug addiction treatment is extremely important, but many people don’t know where or how to find help.

Getting Addiction Treatment Help

There are many different ways you can find the substance addiction treatment you need to recover from drug abuse. Further, you can always contact treatment centers directly. If you’ve been looking into certain centers in your area or rehabs to travel to, you may want to help narrow down your options by first creating a list of specific program features and treatment offerings you’re looking for and then inquiring as to which programs come closest to meeting your criteria. You can ask questions like:

  • Do you offer detox services?
  • How much does the program cost?
  • Do you help transition people into aftercare programs?
  • Do you accept insurance?
  • Which insurance plans do you accept?

While conducting your research, you may come up with any other questions that pertain to you and your individual needs. If you’re feeling overwhelmed and want assistance connecting to resources, call us at any time.

Where Else Can I Find Help?

If you’re looking to enter a substance abuse treatment program without the help of insurance, there are a number of financing options that can help to reduce costs of treatment. High treatment costs shouldn’t be an absolute barrier to seeking help. Many programs will work with you to place the recovery services you need to get clean and sober within your financial reach.

A few ways in which you can pay for treatment include payment plans offered by the treatment program you attend, sliding scale costs based on what you can afford, and grants through the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration.

You might also ask about whether programs you’re interested in offer scholarships or even look into attending a state-funded program that provides free or low-cost recovery services.
