Are Low Cost and Affordable Treatment 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 Maine. 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 treatment? 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 Maine.
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.

Most people who want and are looking for a program in Maine 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. 1-800-819-9973
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.
