Free rehabs in Arizona: how it works

What is free rehab in terms of addiction treatment? Free rehab refers to when someone receives treatment for substance addiction without spending their own money. There are a variety of free rehabs in Arizona by this definition since many centers accept insurance and Medicaid.

The fact is that many Americans struggling with addiction do not receive the treatment they need because they think they can’t afford rehab. However, free drug rehabilitation centers in Arizona can be found through options like health insurance, state programs, and charities. Here at Springboard, we commit to helping you find the best option for you – all it takes is a call.

Free drug rehab centers in Arizona: the ACA

Private health insurance covers part or all costs of addiction treatment programs. This is because of the Affordable Care Act (ACA) of 2010. The ACA classifies substance addiction treatment as any other form of medical treatment. This forces the insurance companies to offer better coverage.

Insurance companies often cover 100% outpatient programs. Inpatient and residential addiction treatments usually have some costs associated with them. Certain elements of each program may have costs or discounted costs. An example would be medication costs associated with the program. Some medications are not covered 100% and there will be an out-of-pocket expense.

Verifying your health insurance

To understand how much insurance will pay for the treatment you need to verify your insurance. You can let your insurance know what facility you would like to attend. They will in return let you know how much coverage you have. Another way is to reach out to your insurance company for policy information and have it sent to you.

Here at Springboard Recovery, we offer aninsurance verification page. You fill in your insurance information and then check verification.

What does free rehab in Phoenix and other cities in Arizona cover?

Under the provisions set out by the ACA, types of addiction treatment covered by healthcare insurance  should include:

  • Drug and alcohol detox: Medically assisted withdrawal or “detox.” This is often necessary depending on the substance and severity of the addiction.
  • Individual therapy sessions:  Therapy is an essential part of drug and alcohol rehab.
  • Group therapy: Group therapy is an integral part of most treatment during rehab.
  • Medication management services: Many people rely on medications during rehab. During the detox phase, they help to control withdrawal symptoms. They may be necessary because of the presence of any mental health or physical health issues.
  • Dual diagnosis treatment: This is for people who have aco-occurring disorder. Dual diagnosis treatment is for people who have other mental health disorders. These coincide with their substance use disorder. This diagnosis ensures that their mental health is being treated with their substance abuse. Mental health disorders are often a contributing factor when it comes to substance abuse.

Every insurance plan is different. Most health insurance providers do offer some type of coverage for substance abuse. It depends on the recommended level of care that a person may need and the coverage they will get.

Medicaid’s benefits for reducing costs

  • Substance abuse screenings: Medicaid will cover the cost of medical screenings to diagnose any substance use disorder (SUD).
  • Intervention services: Families that use intervention services to help a family member can have the cost of professional addiction intervention partly or fully covered.
  • Drug and alcohol detox medications: People often take medications to aid in their recovery; many of them are covered under Medicaid.
  • Family therapy: Family the biggest source of support for people in addiction recovery.
  • Inpatient treatment: This is for people who have severe drug or alcohol addiction.Inpatient rehab is a service covered under Medicaid.
  • Outpatient rehab: Medicaid covers people who need both inpatient and outpatient programs.

Non-insurance options

A good place to start for rehab is a professional rehab program in Arizona. It may not always be financially possible for one reason or another for some people.

Recovery is possible with alternative ways. People can get a level of substance support and still work through recovery.

As mentioned earlier, there are different types of free rehab available. Here are the insurance-free options in more detail:

State-funded substance addiction treatment programs

State-funded rehab centers are facilities that the federal tax system pays for. They accept funding from many sources. They provide rehab services to people who would otherwise be unable to afford them.

State-funded rehab eligibility

Many state-funded rehab programs have strict eligibility requirements. When applying to these programs, you will need to show:

  • Proof of U.S. citizenship
  • Income history
  • Proof you do not have insurance, and
  • Proof of residency within the state where you are seeking rehab

How to find a state-funded rehab near you

SAMHSA provides a Directory of Single State Agencies (SSAs) which can assist you in finding a state-funded rehab nearby. SSA resources provide addiction treatment to those who do not have insurance. Those with low incomes can qualify too.

TheTreatment Services Locator helps you to find treatment centers. This locator uses your home address to find treatment nearby.

Recovery is possible.

Getting and staying sober is very challenging, but with the right support network and tools, it’s completely attainable.

Charity-sponsored substance addiction services

In the U.S., charitable and non-profit organizations work with prevention services. They focus on helping people stay informed about drugs and alcohol. They inform individuals on how to stay off drugs and alcohol. They also ensure individuals and families can access the help and support they need.

Some charities do have a hands-on approach to addiction treatment. One charity is the Salvation Army. They are the largest provider of free, no-cost residential rehabilitation programs in the U.S.

Mutual Aid support groups

There are two founding 12 Step-based mutual aid groups. They areAlcoholics Anonymous (AA) andNarcotics Anonymous (NA). They offer free and easy-to-access addiction recovery support.

In recent years, they have joined with other mutual aid support groups. SMART (Self-Management And Recovery Training) is one and other faith-based groups.

Free online therapy options for mental health disorders

Many people struggling with substance addictions also suffer from co-occurring mental health disorders. While it’s ideal for them to find a treatment center that does dual-diagnosis treatment, finding or qualifying for a free rehab in Phoenix may be quite difficult. However, if you’re struggling with a mental health disorder and you don’t mind virtual treatment, there are quite a few companies that offer reduced price or free online options.
