TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Massachusetts 12-step meetings and peer support resources through DRS.
  • Stay active and distracted—go for walks, biking, running, or jogging, and join a gym or a fitness center.
  • Access free and open behavioral health counseling or Massachusetts 2-1-1.
  • Find an extroverted activity— experience Fenway Park, Cape Cod, Mohawk Trail, Freedom Trail, or the coastline.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Be aware of commonly used drugs like heroin, fentanyl, and prescription opioids.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through DRS or county behavioral health services.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through state overdose prevention information and county programs.
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. Screening, Brief Intervention, and Referral to Treatment are part of routine healthcare practice.
  • Hire a professional interventionist to plan a family intervention.
  • Avoid enabling anyone struggling with a drug or alcohol addiction.

Massachusetts Long-Term Rehab

Long-term substance use rehab programs are common in Massachusetts, and they are extremely efficient. Here are a few reasons why:

  • This treatment approach offers a highly structured process that allows clients to pinpoint the destructive patterns in their lives and prevent them from occurring again.
  • It gives residents a new environment free from triggers and distractions so they can focus solely on their recovery.
  • The length of time a person will spend in a Massachusetts long-term program depends on their history of addiction. This ensures that treatment is individualized based on their specific needs.

With this information, you can see a wide range of choices for a long-term treatment program in Massachusetts. Additionally, various payment options help ensure that anyone can get the help they need, regardless of their financial situation. If you need more information, do not hesitate to contact one of our addiction specialists.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Treatment in Massachusetts

The cost of treatment in Massachusetts can vary from free to quite expensive, depending on a few main factors. This ranges from the length of the program and the level of care provided at the facility. But insurance is one of the biggest factors that determine how much an individual will pay. If the person seeking substance use treatment has coverage, it can make enrolling much easier.

Paying for Treatment with Medicaid in Massachusetts

Using Medicaid to pay for treatment in Massachusetts can cover as much as the full cost. But one must enroll in a program that accepts Medicaid, which can be in high demand. To qualify for Medicaid coverage, the person must be able to demonstrate financial hardship. More than 1.7 million residents have some form of Medicare assistance in Massachusetts.

Using Private Insurance to Pay for Drug Rehab in MA

Private health insurance can also make treatment in Massachusetts affordable. But the person must pay a monthly cost for having coverage whether they use it or not. And this can be quite expensive. So, the person struggling with addiction likely won’t have maintained a private health insurance policy unless it’s being supplied through their employer.

For those who can’t afford private health insurance, Medicaid is their best chance of having assistance paying for treatment. But not everyone in this category qualifies for traditional Medicaid coverage, which is why Massachusetts has accepted federal aid to expand its Medicaid program. This allows more people to access discounted plans from participating private insurers, ultimately obtaining affordable coverage.

The following insurers are available through the Massachusetts Health Insurance Marketplace 2023 Guide:

  • WellSense
  • Fallon Community Health Plan
  • Health New England
  • Mass General Brigham Health Plan
  • Tufts Health Plan Direct
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts
  • Harvard Pilgrim Health Care
  • UnitedHealthcare

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

Despite the assistance available in Massachusetts, people still frequently face the challenge of paying for treatment when uninsured. Those who need treatment often aren’t in good financial shape, so they usually cannot pay cash and are rarely insured. If they haven’t gotten assistance from Medicaid, it could be risky to obtain coverage before getting them the lifesaving treatment they need.

That’s why numerous programs in the state offer sliding-scale payment assistance. This means they consider the person’s income and offer discounted rates to those who cannot pay the full cost. The program fee may even be split into payments, making it more affordable and allowing them to start treatment immediately.

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 is the cost of substance abuse and recovery treatment services in Massachusetts?

    The average cost of drug and alcohol rehabilitation varies and includes some of the following:

    • The average cost of residential drug rehab is $56,700. Yet, this varies significantly based on location, amenities, length of stay, and if the program accepts insurance.
    • The average cost of outpatient drug rehab in Massachusetts is $1,700, yet this can go up or down depending on how long a person remains in treatment.
    • Clinical drug and alcohol detox in Massachusetts costs between $250 and $1000 daily. Medical detox does cost more.
    • Massachusetts offers low-cost and free drug rehab options for someone who meets specific criteria.
  • How long should someone spend at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Massachusetts?

    The length of time someone spends in a drug or alcohol rehabilitation center varies. However, there is a standard time frame that can provide an idea:

    • The average length of stay at a drug or alcohol detox center in Massachusetts is seven days. Yet, medical detox may take longer.
    • The average length of stay at an inpatient drug rehab program is 28 to 60 days. Yet, some residential programs offer services for 3 to 12 months, depending on individual needs.
    • The average time spent attending an outpatient drug rehab center in Massachusetts is 12 to 18 weeks.
  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in Massachusetts?

    Based on treatment admissions, Massachusetts’s most commonly used drugs are heroin and alcohol.

    If you notice your loved one exhibiting the signs of heroin addiction or alcoholism, it is critical to seek help. Addiction or substance abuse worsens with time, and it becomes more challenging to help the person accept treatment. Heroin continues to be a massive problem in the state.

DRS’ Evaluation of Drug Rehab in Massachusetts

In Massachusetts, the primary barrier most residents face when accessing substance use treatment is long wait times at many programs. However, there are extensive options to choose from. We recommend contacting multiple facilities and even placing a name on a waitlist. It is a good idea to keep more than one option available.

Health insurance coverage is extensive, whether MassHealth or private health insurance providers. The majority of programs in the state accept Medicaid or private health insurance. Finally, there is a large number of programs that offer residential non-hospital facilities, which means better long-term help and aftercare support. Any form of residential drug rehab remains the best option.

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.
