TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Missouri 12-step meetings and other resources through DRS.
  • Stay active and distracted—consider taking short or long walks, jogging, running, or joining a gym or fitness center.
  • Access free behavioral health counseling or contact Missouri 2-1-1.
  • Find an extroverted activity— experience the Zoological Park, Botanical Gardens, museums, Lake of the Ozarks, or the Katy Trail.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Cocaine and heroin remain common in the state.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through DRS or the Missouri Department of Mental Health.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through the Missouri Overdose Rescue and Education project (M.O.R.E.)
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. These resources are available through the Missouri Department of Health.
  • Family intervention is an excellent option; consider hiring a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Missouri Long-Term Rehab

It is the professional opinion of DRS that long-term residential treatment or any form of long-term care produces the best results. Here are some reasons why:

  • Extended care options and continuous support. Long-term treatment programs in Missouri provide months of care and treatment. In addition, patients are connected to suitable aftercare support.
  • Attending to multiple needs. A significant benefit of any long-term treatment center is the ability to attend to various needs, not just your substance use. For example, this may include social, legal, vocational, nutritional, and physical health problems.
  • You are removed from a potentially dangerous environment. Long-term treatment programs are primarily residential. This means you have an opportunity to get away from the environment you were once in and be in a supportive environment.
  • Provides more than one therapy option. No one form of drug rehabilitation is suitable for every person. Generally, long-term residential programs tailor treatment to individual needs—for example, behavioral therapies, 12-step therapy, holistic therapy, or spiritual therapy.
  • Around-the-clock medical support. In Missouri, long-term treatment centers, especially residential programs, typically provide 24/7 medical support. Anyone struggling with difficult withdrawal symptoms or a physical ailment benefits from this level of care.

Overall, there are numerous treatment centers in Missouri to consider. Drug rehab programs in Missouri include services for every demographic. In addition, payment options and health insurance make it easier to access services, regardless of your financial situation. For more information or to find immediate help, consult our directory or contact an DRS treatment specialist at any time.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Drug Rehab in Missouri

Missouri is a state that’s no stranger to addiction. And much like the rest of the US, there are several options for treating substance use. The cost of treatment in Missouri may depend on several factors, but one of the most important is if the patient has any health insurance to help pay for treatment. There are also rehabs that take Medicaid in Missouri.

Using Private Insurance to Pay for Drug Rehab in Missouri

For those who can afford private insurance, it may be easier to find help quickly. But privately-funded programs usually don’t accept Medicaid, making private insurance coverage and cash payment the only options. The benefit of these programs is that they usually provide higher-quality care and do not have waiting lists.

Expanded Medicaid is offered at the state level and is a program to help people pay for private insurance premiums based on their income level. This helps those residents who fall within the uninsured gap between Medicaid and being able to afford private health insurance. As of 2021, more than 1 million state residents were enrolled in one of Missouri’s Medicaid programs.

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

  • Aetna
  • Blue Cross Blue Shield of Kansas City
  • Celtic
  • Cigna
  • Cox Health systems
  • Anthem/Healthy Alliance Life Insurance Company
  • Medica
  • Oscar
  • SSM Health Insurance Company
  • UnitedHealthcare

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

Despite the available assistance in Missouri, many people still end up uninsured. When someone needs addiction treatment, there’s no time to waste trying to enroll in insurance that will cover the cost. Often, it takes weeks to enroll in Medicaid, and private insurers only offer new coverage during periods known as “open enrollment.” This stops people from picking up a policy to cover one service, like rehab, and then dropping it.

Thankfully, many treatment programs in Missouri understand this issue and offer assistance for those without insurance. For example, many programs in the state offer sliding-scale payment options. This type of assistance considers the person’s income and offers correlate discounts. You can contact one of the treatment specialists at DRS for more information on how to pay for treatment. Or contact the center directly.

    The average cost of drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Missouri varies, but there are some common prices for treatment:

    • The average cost of inpatient drug rehab in Missouri is $56,700. Yet, this varies significantly based on location, amenities, length of stay, and whether the program accepts health insurance.
    • The average cost of outpatient drug rehab in Missouri is $1700. Yet, this can also change depending on how long a person stays at the programs and how many days a week they attend.
    • The average cost of drug and alcohol detox in Missouri is between $200 and $1000 per day. Medically supervised detox does cost more.
    • Low-cost and free drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs are available in Missouri.
  • How long does drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Missouri last?

    The average time frames for substance use treatment services in Mississippi include the following:

    • The average length of stay at a drug or alcohol detox program in Missouri is seven days. However, medically supervised detox does take longer.

  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in Missouri?

    Based on treatment admissions, Missouri’s most commonly abused drugs are amphetamines and opiates.

DRS’ Evaluation of Drug Rehab in Missouri

A frustrating barrier that many families in Missouri encounter when looking for substance use treatment, is the availability of beds. Unfortunately, demand for treatment often exceeds the spots available. Our experts recommend contacting multiple programs and even placing your name on a waiting list if needed. It is crucial to keep multiple options open.

On a positive note, most substance use treatment centers in the state offer a sliding fee scale for low-income clients. In addition, a good percentage of the facilities provide their services at no charge or minimal payment for clients who cannot pay. However, there is generally a particular criterion to meet.

Overall, there is a good selection of detox, outpatient, and residential care. We recommend receiving an addiction assessment from a qualified professional to determine the best option.

State and Local Resources in Missouri

  • The Missouri Coalition of Recovery Support Providers is a network of faith-based peer and community organizations that restore and rebuild lives and families seeking recovery from substance use disorders. Numerous housing providers are offered to assist.

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.
