Long-Term Inpatient Drug Rehab in Arkansas

At, 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.

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.

Paying for Treatment with Medicaid in Arkansas

For those residents who may need financial assistance with treatment, Arkansas Health and Opportunity for Me (ARHOME) is the state’s new expanded Medicaid insurance program. This program is for people who meet income eligibility and provides coverage through an individual-qualified health insurance plan or traditional fee-for-service Medicaid. Nearly 1 million residents were enrolled in some form of Arkansas’s Medicaid assistance. 

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.

After reviewing state statistics and options available for drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Arkansas, discovered the following pros and cons:


  • The Arkansas Department of Human Services provides mental health and addiction services to Arkansans with limited incomes.
  • Approximately 73% of SAMHSA-listed substance use treatment centers are classified as private non-profit programs, which means more access to families with limited income or no insurance. (source N-SSATS)
  • Roughly 80% of substance use treatment centers accept private health insurance, and 63% accept Medicaid.


  • Unfortunately, only 22% of SAMHSA-listed substance use treatment centers are classified as a private for-profit. Generally, these programs provide more specific treatment methodologies other than traditional 12-step approaches.
  • Detoxification programs are relatively limited, with only 21 available according to SAMHSA—6% listed as residential non-hospital and 4% as a hospital inpatient.
  • There are limited transitional housing, halfway houses, and sober living homes, with 13 available.

Overall, there are excellent treatment options and access to affordable care within the state. Medicaid and private health insurance provide benefits and alleviate much of the cost. However, some families come across long wait times.

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.

Dr. Rohit S. Adi is certified in addiction medicine, through examination, by the American Board of Addiction Medicine. While in Louisiana, he worked as an emergency-room physician at Our Lady of Lourdes Regional Medical Center in Lafayette, Louisiana, but then transferred to Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center in Baton Rouge, where he works to this day. Holding numerous positions throughout his medical career, Dr. Adi has seen the devastating effects caused by drugs and alcohol.
