How to Pay for Alcohol and Drug Treatment Centers in Rochester

There are many ways to pay for inpatient and outpatient addiction treatment in Rochester. State-funded rehabs provide free or low-cost programs. Federal, state, and county governments put money into Minnesota’s Behavioral Health Fund so that state residents with low income can go to rehab. People who qualify can get payment assistance through Olmsted County. These rehab services include methadone clinics, which assist people with medical withdrawal from opioids.

There are also drug and alcohol rehabs that offer rehab scholarships to people who qualify. You will likely have to contact the rehab directly to see if they offer scholarships and fill out an application form.
