305 Younger Court, Austin, TX

DRS recommends a comprehensive approach involving detox, therapy, and aftercare support. Residential treatment is the best option, and there are extensive resources in Texas. Medicaid and private health insurance cover some of the costs associated with drug rehab.

Over ten substance use treatment centers take Medicaid in Austin, and over 15 programs accept private health insurance. Contact one of our qualified addictions professionals for more information. We also offer an extensive directory of programs and services for the city and state.

TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Texas 12-step meetings and aftercare programs from the DRS directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—take long or short walks, join a gym, or frequent the local community center.
  • Utilize free or open behavioral health counseling or contact 2-1-1 Texas.
  • Find an extroverted activity—experience the beaches, arts and culture, history, sports, shopping, or outdoor adventures.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Be aware of stressful and overwhelming situations.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through DRS or Texas Health and Human Services.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through Texas Health and Human Services and Overdose Prevention Strategies.
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. These resources are available at state and local levels.
  • Consider hiring a professional interventionist and plan a family intervention.
  • Avoid enabling anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol as it worsens the situation.

Long Term Drug Rehab Austin

The professional opinion of DRS is that long-term treatment has proven to be the most effective for rehabilitation and life-long sobriety—here are some reasons why:

  • Addiction did not happen in a day. In Austin, long-term drug rehab provides the best opportunities and time to overcome any addiction.
  • The mind and body need time to heal. Lengthier treatment within a residential setting offers more opportunities for healing.
  • Environmental triggers cause a person to use drugs or alcohol. Long-term programs in Austin remove you from these triggers.

There are limited options in Austin TX for long-term drug and alcohol rehab. DRS recommends considering other cities or another state if that is a feasible option.

Cost of Treatment in Austin, Texas

The cost of drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Austin, Texas, varies and depends on multiple factors. Outpatient and inpatient drug rehab varies in cost. Generally, residential programs are more costly than outpatient facilities. In addition, long-term drug rehab costs more than short-term treatment. Finally, Medicaid and private health insurance also change the cost of treatment.

Paying for Treatment with Medicaid in Austin

Texas Medicaid covers the cost of some outpatient and inpatient drug and alcohol rehab. When going through Medicaid to access treatment, the payment is sent directly to the rehabilitation center. Medicaid is designed to help families and persons from low-income households who meet the criteria of the selections it offers. Medicaid may cover outpatient care, inpatient treatment, and detoxification.

Using Private Insurance to pay for Drug Rehab in Austin

Private health insurance is another option to cover residential and outpatient drug and alcohol rehab. Generally, the health insurance provider has specific criteria and works with in-network or out-of-network providers.

Most individuals have health insurance through their employer. Texas utilizes the federally run marketplace and has one of the highest exchange enrollments in the country.

The following insurers offer marketplace coverage in Texas:

  • Aetna CVS Health
  • Celtic/Ambetter (Ambetter from Superior Health Plan)
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Texas
  • Bright Healthcare
  • CHRISTUS
  • Friday Health Plan
  • Moda Health Plan
  • Molina
  • Oscar
  • Sendero
  • SHA/FirstCare
  • Community Health Choice
  • Scott & White Health Plan
  • UnitedHealthcare of Texas

Paying for treatment when uninsured

Paying for drug and alcohol rehab without private health insurance or Medicaid is not always easy. However, it is not uncommon for some treatment centers to offer payment plans to a sliding fee scale based on income. In addition, other options exist, such as free or subsidized drug rehab.

Contact one of our qualified addictions professionals for more information or consult our extensive directory listing of programs within city and state.

DRS’ Evaluation of Austin, Texas

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

Pros

  • There are nine drug and alcohol detox centers in Austin, providing excellent resources for withdrawal management.
  • Most of the drug rehab centers in the city are outpatient facilities, which is a good option for someone refusing residential care.

Cons

  • Texas leaders have been vocally opposed to the ACA, and the state has thus far refused to expand Medicaid, so a cornerstone of the law’s ability to reduce the uninsured rate is unavailable in Texas.
  • Just under half of Austin’s drug and alcohol treatment centers accept Medicaid.
  • Only one facility is classified as transitional housing, halfway house, or sober living home.
  • There are only two long-term residential drug rehab centers.

There are limited options offering well-rounded substance use treatment. Individuals and families may face financial barriers to accessing affordable care. However, there are excellent options for outpatient treatment.

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.
