Alcohol and Drug Use Statistics

When asked about alcohol and drug use over the past year, a national drug use survey of Californians in 2019-2020 found an estimated:1

Regarding admissions to state or publicly funded rehabs in 2019, the top three substances used were methamphetamines/amphetamines, opioids (including heroin), and alcohol.2

In Bakersfield and Kern County, most overdoses were related to methamphetamine and/or opioid (heroin, hydromorphone, hydrocodone, fentanyl, etc.) use. The number of overdoses in Kern County during 2020 increased 30% over those in 2019, keeping with the national trend.3

In 2020, opioid-related overdoses in Kern County caused:4

What is the Cost of Rehab in Bakersfield?

The National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics surveyed rehab facilities nationwide about their costs. Reports indicated treatment costs vary greatly depending upon:

The National Center for Drug Abuse Statistics found that 90 days of outpatient treatment costs approximately $5,000. The least expensive inpatient rehabs charge about $6,000 a month.5

Rehab may seem expensive, but the cost of not treating your alcohol or drug use is even higher as your relationships and work life are affected.6 Private insurance, Medi-Cal, state-funded and free rehabs, scholarships, and payment plans exist to help you receive the treatment you need.

Payment Options for California Facilities

In California, 1,734 rehabs responded to a survey in 2020 by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration about their payment options:2

Bakersfield alcohol rehabs and drug rehabs accept private insurance, Tricare, Medicare, Medi-Cal, self-pay, sliding scale payments, and payment plans.

How To Find Free Rehabs in Bakersfield

Government-funded rehabs in Bakersfield provide free and low-cost alcohol and substance use treatment if you have no insurance or no income. To qualify, facilities usually ask for proof of residency in California, addiction status, and lack of income and insurance to pay for rehab.

Call a specialist about finding a free or low-cost rehab that will work with you and your financial situation.

Does Insurance Cover Rehab in Bakersfield?

Under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), health insurance companies are required to cover treatment for alcohol and substance use disorders (SUDs). If you have a history of alcohol and/or substance misuse, you can’t be denied coverage for these disorders just because they are pre-existing.7

For large group plans, the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) requires coverage for mental health, alcohol misuse, and SUDs to be on par with coverage for medical and surgical conditions. Your out-of-pocket expenses for mental health and alcohol and SUD treatment, including deductibles and copays, must be equivalent with your out-of-pocket responsibilities for medical or surgical care.8

Private Insurance

About half of Kern County residents have private insurance they purchased on their own or have through their employer.9

Two of the more common insurers in Kern County are Health Net and Kaiser Permanente. These both cover alcohol and drug rehab to varying extents.10,11

Medicaid

California’s Medicaid insurance is called Medi-Cal. It covers alcohol and SUDs treatment under the Drug Medi-Cal Organized Delivery System (DMC-ODS).12

You’re eligible for Medi-Cal insurance if:13

DMC-ODS covers individualized treatment plans for SUD in inpatient and outpatient settings. Coverage includes detox, case management, physician consultation, medication-assisted treatment, and recovery services.

Medicare

Medicare pays for both inpatient and outpatient alcohol and drug rehab. Medicare Part A pays 80% of the allowed amount for inpatient care. Medicare Part B covers 80% of the allowed amount for outpatient care. Medicare covers:14

If you are admitted to a specialty psychiatric hospital for a co-occurring mental health disorder, Medicare limits your length of stay to 190 days in your lifetime.

Does My Insurance Plan Cover Addiction Treatment?

Before you decide on Bakersfield drug rehabs, you can call one of our specialists about your insurance coverage. You can also contact your insurance company directly to verify your coverage for SUDs. Call the number on the back of your insurance card or log in to your account online. You’ll want to verify your coverage for:

Your insurance agent can also let you know what deductible, co-pays, and out-of-pocket expenses you’ll be responsible for.

How To Finance Addiction Treatment in Bakersfield

If you are uninsured, underinsured, don’t qualify for treatment in a free rehab, or low-cost rehabs are full, you have options. You can apply for a grant or scholarship or ask the facility about sliding scale or payment plans.

Get a Grant or Rehab Scholarship

Applying for and receiving a grant or scholarship is one way to cut your treatment costs. Start by asking the rehab you’re interested in if it has scholarships. You might be surprised to learn non-profit organizations and corporations provide rehab scholarships. Alternatively, you can check out these resources:

The online application is usually easy to complete and can drop your cost of rehab drastically.

Find a Sliding-Scale Rehab Program

Your drug rehab in Bakersfield may accept sliding scale payment programs, which base your out-of-pocket rehab costs on your ability to pay. These programs typically assess your monthly income and other situational factors to determine how much you can reasonably afford to pay for treatment. If you can only afford to cover a small portion of your total rehab costs, that’s all you’ll need to pay.

Choose a Program That Offers Payment Plans

Some alcohol and drug rehabs will work with you to set up a manageable payment plan. You’ll pay for treatment in installments rather than paying for all of your care up front. One of our specialists at (800) 662-HELP (4357) can help you find a facility that offers financing options.

Addiction Treatment Settings

Based on your answers, your counselor will suggest the level of care and the treatment setting they think will be best for you.

Inpatient Rehab

Inpatient rehab is the most intensive type of treatment. You’ll live at the rehab facility or stay in a hospital for the length of your program. Free-standing rehabs are much more common than hospitals. The rehab facility you choose for inpatient treatment (also called residential treatment) can range from a basic facility to a luxury rehab. Luxury rehabs have added amenities, such as gyms, pools, equine therapy, meditation rooms, etc.

Inpatient treatment typically lasts 30 to 90 days.16 Studies have shown longer stays translate to better outcomes.17

Partial Hospitalization Programs

With partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), you spend four to eight hours in treatment five to seven days a week but spend the night at home. Programs often last 90 days. Having a stable home environment and transportation to and from rehab are important.16

Intensive Outpatient Programs

During intensive outpatient treatment, you meet with your therapist and attend therapy up to 20 hours a week. Intensive outpatient therapy usually lasts anywhere from two months to a year. With this time commitment, you’ll have some time to work or attend school and be with your family and friends.16

Standard Outpatient

Standard outpatient treatment allows you the most flexibility. You’ll attend therapy once or twice a week for several hours.16

You’ll also be encouraged to attend peer support groups. Several options for these groups include:

Telehealth and Online Addiction Treatment

Cost, transportation issues, work conflicts, a lack of childcare, and concern for privacy may be barriers to treatment. Telehealth and online addiction treatment offer high-quality, personalized treatments without having to leave your own home. You may also be able to schedule virtual appointments around your other commitments.18

Treatment includes one-on-one therapy sessions with your healthcare provider and group therapy. Telehealth treatment occurs via video calls, phone calls, or web-based programs. High-speed internet access for video calls is ideal. If you need help paying for internet services, the government-run Affordable Connectivity Program can help you out.19

Check with your insurance company or call one of our specialists about your plan’s coverage. Some insurance companies do not cover virtual rehab.

Medical Detox

With chronic alcohol or drug use, your body may become so accustomed to these substances that you feel sick or have health problems when you stop taking them. Abruptly stopping alcohol or drugs may cause withdrawal symptoms, which can range from uncomfortable to dangerous. While you may have these symptoms when stopping any drug, medical detox is usually needed during alcohol, benzodiazepine, and barbiturate withdrawal. The central nervous system symptoms, particularly seizures, can be life-threatening.

With 24/7 care, you may be given intravenous fluids and medications to relieve symptoms during detox.

It’s important to know, medical detox is the first step in your treatment. Detox can take several days to weeks. Once you’re substance-free and no longer having withdrawal symptoms, you can begin treatment for your alcohol misuse or SUD.

Specialized Rehabs in Bakersfield for Various Populations

Treatment with a group of people who share your demographic may be helpful. Specialized rehabs customize their treatment to suit specific needs while providing a sense of community, so patients feel safe and supported throughout their recovery journey.

Veteran Rehab

Rehabs treating veterans understand the importance of treating SUD co-occurring mental symptoms, such as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), anxiety, and depression. Group therapy with other veterans who have similar experiences (combat and non-combat) are beneficial.20

LGBTQ+ Rehab

About one-third of state- or government-funded California rehabs report being LGBTQ+ friendly.2 This population has higher rates of alcohol and SUDs.21 An LGBTQ-friendly rehab provides an environment free from homophobia, transphobia, social isolation, rejection, and discrimination.22

Men-Only Rehab

In a mixed-gender rehab, men may “tough it out” rather than share their vulnerabilities in front of others due to social stigma and socialization. Men-only rehabs give men the freedom to speak openly about their addiction in a group of peers experiencing similar journeys.23

Women-Only Rehab

Women often experience addiction differently than men and often have a higher risk of relapse after treatment. Women-only rehab programs are sensitive to these challenges and provide an environment where women feel safe, supported, and accepted in expressing their needs and lived experiences. 24

Teen Rehab

In a teen rehab, treatment occurs with peers. Rehab is tailored to an adolescent’s developmental stage and any history of physical, psychological, or sexual abuse. Group therapy with fellow teens allows for more camaraderie and comfort speaking up. Counselors gear treatment to the level of psychological development and incorporate family therapy. Often, adolescent-specific programs also provide dual diagnosis treatment to address substance use and mental health concerns concurrently. 25

Should I Travel to Bakersfield for Drug and Alcohol Rehab?

If you live elsewhere in California or the U.S., staying close to home for rehab may be less expensive. However, traveling for alcohol or drug rehab in Bakersfield may be advantageous if:

Neighborhoods in Bakersfield to Consider for Treatment

Central Bakersfield, or Downtown, is popular with young professionals. The art district, coffee shops, eateries, historic buildings, antique shops, and entertainment make downtown a desirable and lively destination.

Greenacres is a suburban neighborhood with a variety of shops and restaurants that provide convenience and comfort. Olde Stockdale is the wealthiest neighborhood in Bakersfield, with a country club and large swathes of residential homes if you’re looking for a quiet, upscale area for rehab.

Alcohol & Drug Laws in Bakersfield

California’s 911 Good Samaritan Law

The 911 Good Samaritan Law (AB-472) protects you from prosecution if you call 911 for help with an overdose. If you or someone else has overdosed on drugs, calling for medical help right away helps save lives.26

California Proposition 36

Proposition 36’s goal is to treat rather than punish non-violent drug offenders. Under this proposition, low-level drug offenders can choose rehab over jail or prison. In the five years since it took effect, fewer people ended up in jail for drug-related crimes and more people with SUDs entered rehab.27

California Ethical Treatment for Persons with Substance Abuse Disorder

The California Ethical Treatment for Persons with Substance Abuse Disorder, SB-349, says people with alcohol and/or SUDs must be treated with dignity and respect. In addition, your healthcare provider is obliged to share all recommended treatments with you.28

California Employee Protections for Addiction Treatment

Employers with 25 or more employees are required to give time off to an employee to voluntarily enter alcohol or drug rehab, provided it doesn’t cause undue hardship on the employer. The employee may use paid time off, sick leave, or unpaid time off. During treatment, the employee’s job remains protected.29

California Family Rights Act (CFRA) and Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA)

Under CFRA and FMLA, you may have two more options for time off to seek rehab treatment. Each provides 12 weeks off during a 12-month period. CFRA applies to companies with five or more employees. FMLA applies to companies with 50 or more employees.30

Aftercare Options for Post-Rehab Success

Aftercare helps to reinforce what you’ve learned in rehab, gives you support in early recovery, and helps you navigate your return to a substance-free life.

Prior to finishing inpatient or outpatient rehab, you and your counselor will likely develop an aftercare plan that’s based on your needs. Aftercare may include:

Aftercare provides you with some extra support as you work toward lasting recovery.
