Long-Term Inpatient Drug Rehab in Arkansas

At DRS, we strongly believe that long-term treatment is the most effective approach to drug & alcohol rehabilitation. Here are some of its benefits:

  • Different therapy models can be incorporated into the treatment depending on the needs of each person, which can greatly help them in their recovery.
  • The family can become part of the program with family counseling, ensuring that all dynamics of the addiction are addressed.
  • Since the treatment can last anywhere from 30 to 90 days and even longer, the person has ample time to handle any underlying issue that may have contributed to the substance use problem.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Treatment in Arkansas

The cost of the rehabs in Arkansas can be different depending on a few variables. These can include the type of program the person chooses, the length of treatment, and particularly if the person is using insurance to pay. There are also rehabs that take Medicaid in Arkansas.

Using Private Insurance to pay for Drug Rehab in Arkansas

Private health insurance is one of the best ways to get into treatment quickly. Most facilities accept private health insurance or cash payment, particularly privately owned and funded rehabs. These often have beds available, and patients can check in immediately. They may also have better amenities and more thorough care than state-funded Medicaid programs. 

But many people cannot afford private health insurance due to its high costs. Thankfully, the state helps those who don’t qualify for traditional Medicaid yet cannot afford private coverage. These residents can apply for a subsidy towards certain private health insurance policies through the federal exchange marketplace.  This can put health insurance within reach. 

The following insurers are available through the Arkansas health insurance marketplace for 2022:

  • Ambetter
  • Arkansas Blue Cross Blue Shield
  • Health Advantage
  • Oscar

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

Many facilities accept cash payments for treatment. But that doesn’t mean many people can afford it. And despite the assistance available in Arkansas, those who struggle with addiction are often uninsured. Getting coverage for them when treatment is needed is often unrealistic and dangerous since it takes time to apply for insurance and even longer for the benefits to kick in.

Luckily, some programs in the state recognize this barrier and help those with no insurance. They offer sliding scale payment plans, where the person can pay a discounted fee that may be broken up into installments. The discount is usually based on income.

You can contact one of the treatment specialists at DRS for more information on how to pay for treatment. Or contact the center directly.

Ask a professional

  • What would someone expect to pay for drug and alcohol addiction treatment in Arkansas?

    • The average cost of a private long-term residential facility is $53,000 for one person. What you pay can change depending on your insurance and the facility you choose.
    • The average cost of outpatient drug rehab in Arkansas is $1,600, yet this can go up with lengthier treatment.
    • Clinical drug and alcohol detox costs between $250 and $800 daily. In comparison, medical detox can costs between upwards of $1000 per day at a private facility.
    • In addition, there are some low-cost and free treatment options within the state if a person meets specific criteria.
  • What is the standard length of time needed to treat drug and alcohol addiction in Arkansas?

    The standard length of time needed to treat drug and alcohol addiction in Arkansas varies. Generally, it is based on individual needs and circumstances. However, some of the following standard lengths of time include:

    • The average length of stay at an inpatient drug rehab in Arkansas is 4 to 6 weeks. There are also long-term residential program that can last upwards of 6 months or longer.
    • The average stay at an outpatient facility in Arkansas is between 12 to 18 weeks. However, depending on individual needs and circumstances, this can be shorter or longer.
    • The average length of stay at a clinical drug or alcohol detox center in Arkansas is seven days or less. Yet medical detox may last 7 to 14 days or longer.
  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in Arkansas?

    Based on treatment admissions, Arkansas’s most used drugs are amphetamines and opiates. If you suspect someone you know is using these drugs, it is important to intervene as soon as possible, to try and get them into treatment.

DRS’ Evaluation of Arkansas Drug Treatment

It is important to note that well close to three-quarters of the programs in the state accept Medicaid or private health insurance. When contacting a detox center, outpatient program, or residential facility, ask about what insurance is accepted. Also, find out what your Medicaid or private health plan covers.

Align your search with treatment covered by insurance, as there are quality options to consider. Unfortunately, one barrier many residents find frustrating is the access to detox. There are limited hospital inpatient or medical detox and non-hospital detox options. Some programs have long wait times, which becomes frustrating when arranging well-rounded care.

State and Local Resources

The Arkansas Department of Human Services

  • The Department of Human Services provides mental health and addiction services to low-income residents. Some services include assessments, individual or group counseling, family counseling, substance abuse counseling, and other services.

Prescription Drug Monitoring Program—Arkansas

  • The Arkansas PDMP is an electronic database of all the controlled prescriptions dispensed at pharmacies across the state. These programs help prevent ‘doctor shopping,’ prescription drug abuse, and overdose. In addition, it helps curb the misuse and abuse of controlled substances.

Arkansas Take-Back

  • Arkansas Take Back provides extensive resources for collection sites for unused prescription medication. There are hundreds of secure drop boxes throughout Arkansas to drop off medication. In addition, it provides a list of recovery resources and support information for family and friends.

AR Prevention

  • AR Prevention is the go-to resource for Arkansas drug and alcohol misuse prevention information, including drug and alcohol use data, educational tools, resources, and upcoming prevention-related events. The Division of Aging, Adult and Behavioral Health Services, Arkansas Department of Human Services, offers these events.

More Information

Michael Leach is a Certified Clinical Medical Assistant, who has over 5 years of experience working in the field of addiction. He spent his career working under the board-certified Addictionologist Dr. Rohit Adi. His experience includes working with families during their loved one’s stay in treatment, helping those with substance abuse issues find treatment, and teaching life skills to patients in a recovery atmosphere. Though he has worked in many different areas of rehabilitation, the majority of his time was spent working one on one with patients who were actively withdrawing from drugs. Withdrawal and the fear of going through it is one biggest reason why an addict continues to use and can be the most difficult part of the rehabilitation process. His experience in the withdrawal atmosphere has taught him that regardless of what approach a person takes to get off drugs, there are always mental and emotional obstacles that need to be overcome. He believes having someone there to help a person through these obstacles can make all the difference during the withdrawal process.
