DRS believes that long-term residential remains the best option, yet every addiction is different from the next. Illinois Medicaid and private health insurance plans cover the cost of treatment, depending on the plan. Some substance use treatment centers in Illinois may accept Medicaid or private health insurance.

Contact one of our qualified addictions professionals for more information. We offer an extensive directory listing of available drug and alcohol rehab centers in Chicago and across Illinois.

Long-Term Drug Rehab in Chicago

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:

  • You need help in Chicago that only long-term drug and alcohol rehab can provide.
  • Withdrawal symptoms are often ongoing. Detoxification programs are generally part of long-term facilities. More time is spent managing withdrawal.
  • Addiction did not happen in a day. Long-term drug rehab in Chicago provides the best opportunities and time to overcome any addiction.

There are excellent options in Chicago to consider. However, suppose the city is where your addiction is occurring. In that case, DRS recommends that you consider drug and alcohol rehab in another location. Taking this step improves success and life-long sobriety.

Paying for Treatment in Chicago, Illinois

The cost of drug and alcohol rehab in Chicago varies and depends on several factors. Longer programs, for example, are often more expensive than short-term programs or outpatient drug rehab. Medicaid and private health insurance alleviate some of the costs. In addition, amenities and other specific services may change the price of substance use treatment.

Paying for Treatment with Medicaid in Chicago

Illinois Medicaid covers different drug and alcohol rehab options. For example, outpatient care, some inpatient centers, and detox facilities. Rehab centers that accept Medicaid are paid directly by the insurance provider. Medicaid is designed to help families and persons from low-income households who meet specific criteria.

Using Private Insurance to Pay for Drug Rehab in Chicago

Private health insurance covers some outpatient and residential drug and alcohol rehab in Chicago. The state of Illinois operates a partnership exchange, ‘Get Covered Illinois’ with the federal government. The extent of coverage depends on the insurance plan. Generally, you would contact your health insurance provider or the substance use treatment center.

The following insurers offer marketplace coverage in Chicago:

  • Celtic Insurance Co. (Ambetter)
  • Health Alliance Medical Plans, Inc. (HAMP)
  • Health Care Service Corporation (HCSC, Blue Cross Blue Shield of Illinois)
  • Cigna
  • Quartz
  • Bright Health
  • MercyCare HMO
  • SSM Health Plan (WellFirst Health)
  • Oscar
  • Molina
  • UnitedHealthcare

Paying for Treatment When Uninsured

Paying for drug and alcohol rehab without health insurance is not always easy. However, it is not uncommon for some substance use treatment centers in Chicago to offer payment plans or a sliding fee scale based on income. In addition, medical financing may be available.

Overall, it is crucial to speak with the drug rehab provider. Contact one of our qualified addictions professionals for more information, or consult our extensive directory listing.

DRS’ Evaluation of Chicago, Illinois

After reviewing state statistics and options available for Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation in Chicago, DRS discovered the following pros and cons:

Pros

  • There are extensive substance use treatment options in the city with close to 300 resources.
  • There are 43 drug and alcohol detox centers providing excellent withdrawal management solutions.
  • Numerous facilities offer transitional housing, halfway houses, and sober living homes.
  • Medicaid expansion in Illinois was authorized in 2013 and went into effect in 2014.

Cons

  • There are limited long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers, making it difficult to access lengthier treatment options.
  • There are limited residential drug rehab programs, yet outpatient care is accessible, making it easy to access treatment immediately.

Overall, there are many substance use treatment options within Chicago. Affordability of treatment may be a barrier for some people and families.

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.
