TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Minnesota 12-step meetings and other resources through Addicted.org.
  • Stay active and distracted—exercise is the best option, such as walk and bike-friendly communities, fitness centers, or community centers.
  • Access free behavioral health counseling or contact Minnesota 2-1-1.
  • Find an extroverted activity— experience the Superior National Forest, North Shore Scenic Drive, Zoo, parks, or even go shopping.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse, such as alcohol, recreational drug users, etc.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through Addicted.org or the Minnesota Department of Human Services.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through the Minnesota Department of Health Drug Overdose Prevention.
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. These resources are available at the local and state level.
  • Organize a family intervention and hire a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Minnesota Long-Term Rehab

DRS and its professionals believe that long-term substance use treatment provides the best opportunity for lifelong sobriety—here are some reasons why:

  • Long-term programs offer more than one therapy treatment methodology. For example, behavioral therapies, holistic treatment, experiential therapy, or even spiritual therapy.
  • Long-term facilities offer 24/7 support and care for each client. Going through rehabilitation involves commitment—this is easier to maintain with continuous and ongoing support.
  • Individuals remain in treatment for an adequate period. Long-term rehabilitation means 30, 60, 90 days, or longer. The best outcomes occur with longer durations of treatment.
  • Long-term programs are safe and supportive environments. Overcoming drug addiction means being away from the drug-using environment. These programs provide this and give you a safe, drug and alcohol-free environment.
  • Long-term programs offer structure and routine. It is often the simple things that help you maintain sobriety. For example, having a daily routine, habits, and structure is essential in preventing relapse.

There are numerous long-term options in Minnesota. DRS helps you narrow the search. Regardless of your situation with your addiction or finances, long-term drug rehab programs are available.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Treatment in Minnesota

Residents of Minnesota who need help with substance use may find the cost of treatment to be a barrier. But thankfully, some options help people afford treatment to recover from addiction. These options come from health insurance and payment options offered by facilities for those with financial hardship. There are also rehabs that take Medicaid in Minnesota.

Using Private Insurance to Pay for Drug Rehab in Minnesota

Often, residents make too much income to qualify for Medicaid. In this case, they can either purchase their private health insurance or their employer may provide a plan for them. One benefit is that most privately-funded treatments accept private health insurance, which can drastically reduce the price. These programs generally have no waiting lists and provide excellent care. 

For those who cannot afford private health insurance yet don’t qualify for Medicaid, there are solutions. Minnesota’s Medicaid Assistance program offers help paying for privacy policies to those who qualify. Residents can apply online at MNsure, the state’s exchange marketplace, and potentially receive a subsidy towards their premium. 

The following insurers are available on the Minnesota Health Insurance Marketplace 2023 Guide:

  • Blue Plus
  • Group Health
  • Medica
  • UCare
  • Quartz

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

For those with no insurance whatsoever, treatment can be downright unaffordable sometimes. And waiting to get on an insurance policy in hopes that it will pay for treatment is risky and unreasonable.

Luckily, many facilities understand this, so they offer sliding-scale payment options. This means the less income a person makes, the less they’re charged for treatment. Sliding scale may also allow for the cost of the program to be broken up into several payments over time, so someone can afford it.

For more information on how to pay for drug treatment, you can reach out to one of the treatment specialists at DRS. or contact the center directly.

Ask a professional

  • What are the average costs of substance use treatment and detox in Minnesota?

    • The average cost of residential drug rehab in Minnesota is $56,600. This price can vary depending on the facility and your insurance.
    • Minnesota’s average cost of outpatient drug rehab is $1,700, yet this can go up or down depending on how long a person attends the program.
    • Standard drug and alcohol detox in Minnesota costs between $250 and $800 daily. In comparison, medical detox up to $1000 or more.
    • Health insurance and state-funded insurance cover the cost of some substance use treatment.
  • How long does it take to treat drug and alcohol addiction in Minnesota?

    • The average length at an inpatient drug rehab in Minnesota is 4 to 6 weeks.
    • The average stay at an outpatient drug rehab facility is 12 to 18 weeks, but this varies depending on addiction severity.
    • The average length of stay at a clinical drug or alcohol detox center in Minnesota is three to seven days; medical detox may last 7 to 14 days or longer.
  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in Minnesota?

    Based on treatment admissions, Minnesota’s most used drugs are amphetamine and alcohol.

    If someone you know begins to exhibit the signs of amphetamine addiction or alcoholism, it is critical to seek help. Alcoholism worsens over time, and amphetamine is a highly addictive licit drug commonly abused.

DRS’ Evaluation of Minnesota Drug Rehabs

In Minnesota, there is an abundant number of affordable rehabilitation centers with accessibility. Over half of the substance use treatment centers in the state accept Medicaid, and most take state-financed health insurance plans or private health insurance. We recommend contacting more than one program. Find out what payment options it offers. Also, contact your Medicaid office or health insurance provider to determine what is covered.

Additionally, a large portion of the facilities offers residential non-hospital programs. Residential drug rehab remains the best option. Unfortunately, there are limited detoxification options, which can pose a barrier for someone struggling with opioid addiction, for example. Our experts recommend finding programs incorporating detox at the same location as the rest of the treatment.

State and Local Resources in Minnesota

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.
