How to Pay

Affordable Care Act – People who are signed up for the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) are automatically eligible to get their drug and alcohol rehab treatment paid. Read more information by clicking on the Affordable Care Act and Rehab article.

Cash, Credit, or Debit Card – Many drug and alcohol treatment centers accept direct out-of-pocket payments with cash, credit, or debit cards. You can call a professional treatment advisor at the treatment center of your choosing to determine if payment plans are available. Make sure you check your credit limit to determine if your card balance will cover the full or partial cost.

ACH – Auto bank transfers from checking or savings accounts can prepay for addiction treatment services.

Fundraiser – Getting the funds through a fundraiser website like GoFundMe or Indiegogo is an option. A third party or accountability partner can manage the funds and ensure the rehab facility gets them. CoFund offers help to raise money for your health expenses. 

Scholarship 10,000Beds offers a scholarship program for people without insurance coverage who want to apply for addiction treatment programs.

Grants – Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) offers hundreds of millions in grants to cover the expenses for addiction treatment. Apply here.

Loans – Getting a personal loan from family or friends or a payday loan through a lending service is another way to pay for rehab services.

Refinancing – Refinancing a vehicle or selling a house is an option to pay for rehab.

Employers – Some employers offer Employee Assistance Programs (EAPs) to pay for programs to their employees who are suffering addiction problems. Moreover, you can request temporary disability to cover the cost.
