Every patient is unique. Every patient has different needs. Some patients have insurance that will help pay the costs to enter a rehab center and some don’t. Some patients can afford to pay up front for their out of pocket expenses (the portion that insurance does not pay) and some patients need financial help. Because your financial position should not be the primary factor that determines whether or not you or your loved one gets help, our nationwide rehab centers have treatment options and financing options that will fit the needs of most people. It is important to understand your treatment choices and financing options.

Treatment Choices Are Available At All Rehab Centers

The Traditional Residential Treatment Choice

This treatment option is available at all Valley Hope residential rehab centers when a 30-day residential treatment experience is desired. Typically when a patient completes this treatment option the patient will go directly into continuing care. Continuing care will provide support for up to a year following discharge from primary residential care.

The Step-Down Treatment Choice

This treatment option is available at all Valley Hope residential rehab centers. Patients receive treatment in a residential setting for a variable length of time (days two weeks), but when they are ready for less intensive treatment, they transition to an outpatient level of care. This allows patients to get back to their daily lives as soon as possible. In order to help with this goal, you or your loved one, as a patient, will work with your counselor to identify the progress needed to move from residential to outpatient care. This basically means you or your loved one will be stabilized in residential care and then complete treatment in an outpatient setting. Continuing care will provide support for up to a year following discharge from step down treatment.

Many patients needing financial assistance to access treatment elect the step-down model of care, as the overall cost is often less.

The Outpatient Treatment Choice

This treatment option is available for patients who need a less structured treatment setting that allows them to continue with their daily life. Patients normally attend group sessions in the mornings or evenings. Typically when a patient completes this treatment option the patient will go directly into continuing care. Continuing care will provide support for up to a year following discharge from primary outpatient care. Outpatient treatment at our Valley Hope rehab centers is available both on-grounds and online.

How You Pay for Treatment will Affect Your Treatment Choices

Your treatment choices are affected by the way in which your addiction treatment costs are paid. The following paragraphs will explain how financial factors affect treatment choices.

If You Have Health Insurance and Plan to Use It

Your health insurance policy will guide this process. While many health insurance policies include chemical dependency treatment benefits, these policies also often include medical necessity requirements that the patient must meet in order to use these benefits. Valley Hope rehab centers have years of experience helping patients work with their insurance companies. However, there is no guarantee that your insurance company will authorize payment. When you use your insurance benefits to help pay for treatment you can usually expect that treatment will follow the step-down treatment model.

Self-Pay Options

If you are a patient electing to pay out-of-pocket for your addiction treatment costs, then you can choose traditional residential treatment which includes a 30-day length of stay or you can work with your counselor to individualize your length of stay based on your immediate clinical needs. In this latter case, the course of treatment would likely be stabilization in a residential care facility and completion of primary care in an outpatient setting. For self pay patients, all Valley Hope rehab centers offer both of these models.

Traditional Care Program

Many of our patients choose a conventional course of treatment that we call “Traditional Care.” To admit to our Traditional Care program the patient must be willing to commit to 30 days of residential treatment without the use of health insurance. The cost for this program is substantially discounted and includes all addiction treatment costs except non-routine ancillary charges (i.e. medications, doctor visits, non-routine lab work, etc.). Completion of this program at one of our Valley Hope residential rehab centers provides the patient with the opportunity to purchase a full year of continuing care at a substantially discounted rate.

Recovery Commitment Program

This fee discount program is for patients who choose outpatient treatment and are willing to commit to six weeks of intensive (IOP) treatment without the use of health insurance. The addiction treatment cost of this program is substantially discounted and includes three 3-hour group sessions per week and up to 6 hours of individual counseling. Completion of this program provides the patient with the opportunity to purchase a full year of continuing care at a substantially discounted rate. The Recovery Commitment Program is available both on-ground at all Valley Hope outpatient rehab centers and online.

Self-Pay Financing Program

Patients who are unable to take advantage of the Traditional Care or Recovery Commitment programs may choose to participate in our self-pay program. The self-pay program usually involves some initial payment to get started. Then, if you qualify, the remaining balance due on the account can be set up on a monthly payment plan. This payment plan will include an interest charge (similar to a credit card plan). The interest amount will depend on how quickly you can pay back the financed amount, in addition to other factors. The Valley Hope rehab centers will work with you to individually tailor your financing plan to your particular financial situation. Our first concern, however, is always about your well being.

Continuing Care

Chemical dependency is a chronic disease and people are not “cured” when they complete primary care. Research shows that patients who stay connected to primary and continuing care treatment for a year or longer have stronger recovery programs and are less prone to relapse. All Valley Hope rehab centers offer continuing care at a considerable discount to those patients who complete primary care at Valley Hope.
