Unfortunately, within the Jacksonville region, drug rehab programs are limited. DRS also recommends searching for options in neighboring cities. Health insurance does cover the cost of most services. According to SAMHSA, over five of the programs take Medicaid, while over ten of the programs take private health insurance.

DRS has an extensive directory listing of numerous programs and services in the city and throughout the state. Contact one of our addictions counselors for more information, or consult our directory for specific program details.

Long Term Drug Rehab Jacksonville

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

  • Your addiction is too severe for standard outpatient treatment in Jacksonville, and long-term residential is a better fit.
  • You are chronically ill and need medical treatment during rehabilitation. Long-term programs provide more help.
  • You have tried outpatient or short-term drug rehab in Jacksonville, and long-term residential is a better fit.

Overall, there are limited long-term rehabilitation options in Jacksonville. DRS recommends considering other cities in Florida. However, every situation is different from the next. Our qualified professionals will help you find the right choice.

TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Florida 12-step meetings and other peer support groups through the DRS directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—take advantage of Florida’s numerous walking trails and outdoor scenery.
  • Access counseling through the Department of Children and Families or contact 2-1-1 Florida.
  • Find an activity—experience the national parks, beaches, communities like Little Havana, and amazing outdoors.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Dangerous opioids are commonly mixed with other drugs.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Find local help through Florida Health and the Department of Children and Families.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—numerous resources are offered through Florida Health.
  • Substance use disorder screening is offered through the Florida Department of Children and Families.
  • Organize a family intervention and hire a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling the person who is addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Paying for Treatment in Jacksonville, Florida

The cost of drug and alcohol treatment in Jacksonville varies and depends on several factors. Initially, there are private and government-funded drug rehab programs. Medicaid and private health insurance cover some costs. There are differences in cost between residential and outpatient treatment. In addition, long-term programs cost more than short-term drug rehab.

Paying for Treatment with Medicaid in Jacksonville

Florida Medicaid covers some drug and alcohol treatment programs. For example, this may include outpatient treatment, inpatient programs, and detox centers. Generally, when you find a drug rehab center through Medicaid, the payment is sent directly to the treatment center. Medicaid is designed for low-income families and individuals who qualify.

Using Private Insurance to pay for Drug Rehab in Jacksonville

Private health insurance is another option to consider. Private health plans cover substance use treatment. However, the extent of coverage depends on the particular health insurance plan. It may cover residential drug rehab, outpatient facilities, and detox.

It is best to contact your health insurance provider in Jacksonville for more details. Most individuals have health insurance through their employer. Florida uses the federally run health marketplace.

The following insurers offer marketplace coverage in Florida:

  • Aetna-CVS/Coventry (new for 2022)
  • AvMed
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Florida (Florida Blue)
  • Bright Health Insurance Company
  • Cigna
  • Florida Health Care Plan Inc
  • Health First Health Plans
  • Molina
  • Oscar Health
  • Florida Blue HMO (Health Options)
  • Ambetter (Celtic)

Paying for treatment when uninsured

Paying for drug and alcohol rehab without health insurance is not easy. However, it is not uncommon for some drug rehab centers in Jacksonville to offer payment plans or a sliding fee scale based on income. In addition, no-profit drug rehab centers may provide free or low-cost substance use treatment.

Contact one of our qualified addictions counselors for more details, or consult our extensive directory listing of programs and services.

DRS’ Evaluation of Jacksonville, Florida

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

Pros

  • The majority of Jacksonville’s drug and alcohol treatment centers offer outpatient treatment, making it easy to find help immediately.
  • There are effective long-term residential drug rehab centers within the city.
  • Medicaid is accepted at over half of the city’s drug and alcohol treatment centers.

Cons

  • There are limited drug and alcohol treatment resources within Jacksonville.
  • Substance use detox programs include only five facilities.
  • There are only a couple of transitional, halfway, and sober living homes.
  • Although a growing number of states have since opted to expand coverage, there are a dozen – including Florida – that have taken no action to expand Medicaid eligibility to include low-income, non-elderly, non-disabled adults without children.

There are effective solutions considering Jacksonville’s limited number of drug and alcohol treatment options. In addition, there are affordable options to consider.

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.
