Affordable and Low-Cost Addiction Treatment Programs in Alaska
For those seeking help with addiction, the cost of private treatment can be out of reach for most people seeking a Drug Rehab Center. When seeking a treatment program for addiction, the cost of treatment can seem out of reach and this can lead to a feeling of defeat. Most of the people who seek treatment in Alaska have found that the seemingly great treatment centers are just out of reach, financially, for them. When seeking treatment for addiction, the cost should not outweigh the need for treatment in a residential drug rehab center. Give us a call, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and we can help you find a drug rehab center that is affordable in Alaska today.
Are Low Cost and Affordable Rehabilitation Centers different from their high-cost counterparts?
Affordable treatment centers for addictions, utilize the same treatment models and therapy types just like the more expensive treatment centers in Alaska. There are some differences in the amount of one-on-one therapy that the low-cost treatment centers offer. To offset the cost of treatment, a low-cost center will not have all the amenities that an expensive rehab has. The programs they offer are anywhere from 21 – 90 days long. We highly recommend staying at one of these centers for at least 28 days, if you can take the time off. A 90-day program is best.
Can I even afford to go to rehab? What is the cost involved?
When looking to enter a low-cost program there usually are some costs associated with receiving treatment at their center.
Most of the treatment centers that are state funded, come on a sliding fee scale and are based on income and need at the time of intake. The cost can range from no cost to around $1,000 to help cover food and housing while in treatment.
Private Low-Cost Treatment centers are usually smaller centers and this lowers the cost due to location and type of amenities offered. These programs are the better option for those who can afford it. They usually range from about $1,500-$7,000 dollars a month for treatment. The average price of treatment at a private treatment center is around $15,000 a month. Some of the more expensive programs, or what they call the best drug rehab centers, can be upwards of $60,000 a month. But fear not we have options in Alaska. We offer programs in many cities including Anchorage, Fairbanks, Juneau, Eagle River, Badger, Knik-Fairview, College, Sitka, Lakes, Tanaina Alaska.
I have Medicaid or Medicare. Are there centers that take that insurance?
Finding a private treatment center that will take Medicaid or Medicare can be difficult but there are State funded options that will take your insurance for treatment at their center.
Access to Recovery Vouchers
ATR or Access to Recovery is a federally funded program that offers treatment options. You can choose from their list of contracted providers. Some other programs can be accepted if the need of the client can not be met at one of their treatment centers. To access this service you must be below the 2010 poverty level for your region.
What if the Person does not want help for their addiction?
Getting a person that does not want help for their addiction, to enter into a rehab facility can be a bit tricky to accomplish by yourself. Getting an interventionist to help the family is the best option for achieving the desired outcome. Interventions usually are done by certified interventionists and can vary in cost, anywhere from $500 and up to $5,000 for the intervention process.
Affordable Inpatient Drug Rehab FacilitiesMost people who want and are looking for a program in Alaska to help with their addiction, are willing to commit to 30- 90 days of treatment. Any longer of a stay and the client starts to feel confined and anxious to go home and get back to their life. The longer the program is, does not usually affect the outcome of treatment. Once you pass the 90-day mark for treatment, it is up to the individual to apply what they have learned and move forward with their life. There may be some slips along the way but with friends and family, overcoming this is easy. Forgiveness and understanding and love are necessary.
We have carefully compiled a list of reputable free or low-cost treatment centers. These programs may be long, but when you are receiving free treatment for addiction, there is always a cost. Some programs offer work type exchange and others may ask for you to get donations for your treatment, but at all the facilities listed, you will receive treatment as well as counseling. When making a commitment for treatment at one of these centers try to finish the program. This will go a long way in your recovery from drugs or alcohol. Starting off sobriety by leaving a program early rarely works, because you have failed as soon as you leave the program before you are finished.
Our list of free or low-cost treatment centers for addiction to drugs or alcohol in Alaska is provided as a public benefit service. If you have any questions regarding the treatment and types of programs that they offer, feel free to contact one of our counselors. We will help you any way we can to get the life back that you deserve. Call us toll-Free and we will help you find the best treatment center and low-cost treatment programs.
