Expert Insights

I recently heard on the radio that there is a new housing development underway in Peoria for young adults experiencing homelessness. It will house 16 units for youth aged 18 to 24 years old and serve children aged out of the welfare system and LGBTQ+ youth. Given those are at-risk populations for addiction, mental health disorders, and houselessness, this is a great opportunity to provide stable housing so youth learn to meet their own needs and get connected with mental health resources, like outpatient addiction treatment. Having observed drug use in teens and the impact it can have on their well-being long-term, I think this is such a great way to ensure these youth live productive and healthy lives instead of wandering the streets or ending up in jail and forgotten about. This could make a huge difference in their lives.

Cost of Drug Rehab in Peoria

The cost of addiction treatment varies depending on a number of considerations. Your cost will differ based on the program you choose and the amenities it offers. The length of the program can affect the cost; longer-term programs cost more than shorter-term ones.

Facilities that include options for specialized treatments or luxury amenities have a higher price tag than programs with fewer luxury amenities. Travel expenses also affect overall costs.

In general, inpatient programs will be more expensive than outpatient programs. When you attend inpatient treatment, your costs include fees for housing and food, as well as counseling, medical care, and any additional activities during treatment. Outpatient programs don’t require you to live on location, so the price tag is lower.

Does Insurance Cover Rehab Center Costs?

Whether you have Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance, your out-of-pocket costs may vary based on your insurance coverage. Your policy will cover some portion of the costs, but you may be responsible for co-pays.

You may also face high costs if you attend a program that is not part of your insurance company’s network. You can ask your insurance which facilities participate in its network.

Low-Cost and Free Drug Rehab Centers in Peoria

The state of Arizona’s Substance Abuse Block Grant (SABG) program provides state funds for alcohol and drug rehabs in Peoria.4 The funding helps cover the cost of rehab for people who otherwise do not have the ability to pay for treatment. To be eligible for SABG funding, you need to be able to demonstrate that you have used substances in the past 12 months.

You can seek SABG funding if you are uninsured and meet one of the following criteria (in order of priority):

Teenagers or pregnant people who use intravenous drugs

All others who use intravenous drugs

Women or teenagers who have children and who use drugs and alcohol

Others who use drugs and alcohol, if funding is available

Addiction Treatment Settings

Treatment for addiction and substance use disorder is given along a “continuum of care.” This includes early intervention for people in high-risk situations and ends with aftercare programs and lifelong support. Though people can start “on the path” at any point, the general timeline proceeds as such:9

Early intervention: This consists of providing education and assistance to those who are in high-risk situations for addiction.

Medical Detox: Your body needs to be cleaned out before starting other aspects of rehabilitation. A team of medical professionals can help keep you safe and comfortable while managing painful withdrawal symptoms.

Inpatient: Residential care is the most intensive form of treatment. It involves living 24/7 in a psychiatric hospital or residential treatment center for a period of 30, 60, or 90 days.

Outpatient: These programs range from partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) to intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and standard outpatient treatment. They differ by the amount of time spent in treatment per day and week.

Aftercare: Aftercare plans encourage the continuation of healthy living habits and provide you with supportive communities to continue with sobriety after rehab.
