Oregon Long-Term Drug Rehab

Addicted.org believes some of the best rehabilitation comes from long-term residential treatment. Our professional opinion is that it provides the best opportunities for life-long sobriety. Here are some reasons why:

  • Oregon's long-term rehabilitation programs spend months helping you develop structure, routine, healthy habits, and behaviors. All of which contribute to living a drug and alcohol-free life.
  • Long-term programs last 30, 60, 90 days or longer, providing extensive therapy and multiple methodologies.
  • Residential long-term programs offer more in terms of extended care and 24/7 support. Patients are connected with other sober like-minded people and develop lasting sober relationships.
  • More than one therapy methodology is utilized, such as behavioral therapy, experiential therapy, spiritual, or holistic therapy.
  • Long-term inpatient generally also provides 24/7 medical care, which is vital for patients experiencing difficult withdrawal or underlying medical problems.

There are excellent long-term treatment options in Oregon for substance use. Regardless of your situation with your addiction or finances, addicted.org and its qualified professionals will help you locate the best possible resources.

Services breakdown for Oregon drug rehab.

Inpatient Drug Rehab Oregon

According to SAMHSA, there are three inpatient drug and alcohol rehab centers in Oregon. This also includes four hospital inpatient centers offering 24-hour support. The difference between inpatient and residential drug rehab is the level of medical care. Inpatient programs provide elevated medical support, a benefit from some patients.

Cost of Treatment in Oregon

The cost of addiction treatment in Oregon can vary greatly depending on factors like the type of program the person chooses. One of the most influential factors is the type of insurance the person has if they have any, and if the facility accepts it.

Paying for Treatment with Medicaid in Oregon

Medicaid is a program that provides health insurance to those who cannot afford it. In Oregon, Medicaid coverage is called the Oregon Health Plan, and more than 1 million residents are enrolled. When Medicaid is used to pay for treatment, it can cover all expenses.

Using Private Insurance to pay for Drug Rehab in Oregon

Private health insurance may provide patients with better access to substance use treatment options. The issue is that it can be quite expensive, and many people who are not provided private insurance through their employer cannot afford it. For those who can, it can mean access to higher-quality treatment options that don't have waiting lists.

Another issue is that many people are at an income level where they don't qualify for Medicaid but cannot afford private insurance. Thankfully, Oregon's expanded Medicaid program helps with this problem. Depending on a person's income, they may be eligible for assistance paying for the monthly premium of one of several participating insurers' policies.

The following insurers are available at discounted rates through Oregon's expanded Medicaid program:

  • BridgeSpan
  • Moda
  • PacificSource
  • Regence
  • Providence
  • Kaiser

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

Despite all of the above options, someone can still wind up paying for treatment when uninsured. Often, the person hasn't taken care of themselves and may not have health insurance when it comes time to needing treatment. And waiting to get them on a policy before starting treatment can be dangerous and unrealistic.

In these cases, there still maybe help. Many programs understand this dilemma and are willing to work with patients to help them get treatment. Sliding scale payment options based on the person's income may help lessen the cost of treatment by providing discounts to those who need them.

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

Ask a Professional

How long does drug rehab take to complete?
  • Outpatient – Ranges from 4-12 weeks, with a couple of hours each day spent receiving care. The length of time in outpatient depends on the needs of the client.
  • Detox – 1-2 weeks depending on the type and amount of substances the client is using.
  • Short-term inpatient – 28 days is the standard length of treatment for most short-term programs
  • Long-term Residential– The length of these programs usually ranges from 8-12 weeks. Still, it can go upwards to a year or even longer in some cases.
Can I force my loved one to go to treatment?

While it may seem that your loved one does not want help, there are ways to convince them to get treatment. Medical professionals and certified interventionists are trained in helping people realize they need to go to rehab. Enlisting their help can make a difference in someone gaining sobriety.

What do I do after being placed on a waiting list to attend rehab?
  • Understand the risk associated with coming off your drug of choice. Stopping alcohol, benzos, or opiates requires medical supervision, so consult a medical professional before completely stopping your substance use.
  • Check-in regularly with the rehab center and ensure you follow their guidelines to stay on the waiting list. Some centers require you to check in daily to remain on the list.
  • Understand that the wait time you are told is generally a worst-case scenario. Beds can open faster than expected, and you can sometimes get in sooner than you were initially told.
  • Consider getting on multiple waiting lists to better your chances of getting into treatment faster.
  • Utilize the time to your advantage. Examples of this are planning with your employer, handling your living situation, or settling any financial obligations. Taking the time to manage responsibilities before entering treatment ensures you will stay focused on your recovery and have less attention on things outside of treatment.
Does my insurance cover rehab?
  1. Call the help number on the back of your insurance card. It will connect you to someone who can go over your coverage options for drug and alcohol rehab.
  2. Give your insurance information to the center you are interested in attending. They can check how much coverage you will receive.

It is important to understand that just because you have coverage does not guarantee your claim will be approved. The person attending rehab must be deemed to have a medical necessity for treatment. If this is not established, then it’s possible insurance will not pay. During the admissions process, it is vital to ask the intake counselor how the facility handles a patient who does not meet medical necessity.

I already went to treatment before and relapsed. Is it worth going back?
  • Contact the treatment center aftercare services or graduate helpline. Discuss the circumstances of the relapse.
  • Consider attending a 12-step meeting or support group.
  • Outpatient programs provide excellent aftercare support.
  • If relapses occur frequently, it would be time to return to a residential program.

The reality of recovery is relapse happens. Yet, how an individual handles the relapse determines the outcome. Keep pushing forward, reach out to other sober people, be grateful, and focus on the positive.

Addicted.org's Evaluation of Oregon 

After reviewing state statistics and options available for Drug and Alcohol Rehabilitation in Oregon, addicted.org discovered the following pros and cons:


  • Mental health and substance use treatment services are covered by CareOregon. Individuals enrolled in the Oregon Health Plan have benefits for most mental health services, including substance use treatment, counseling, and detox.
  • Roughly 89% of SAMHSA-listed substance use treatment programs accept Medicaid, and 87% accept private health insurance.
  • Approximately 73% of substance use treatment centers offer a sliding fee scale. In comparison, 55% provide treatment at no charge or minimal payment for clients who cannot pay.


  • Detoxification programs are limited, with only 30 available per the SAMHSA directory. Roughly 8% are residential non-hospital, and 2% are hospital inpatient detoxification. (source N-SSATS)
  • Oregon has a backlogged substance use treatment system. Measure 110 passed, which takes drug users out of jails and places them into clinics, yet there is a significant strain on the system.
  • The state has had some of the highest rates of substance abuse in the country. The state government spends about $236 million per year to prevent and treat substance abuse—63% of that is for addiction-related care through the Oregon Health Plan.
  • Only 14% of SAMHSA-listed substance use treatment centers in the state are classified as residential non-hospital programs.

Overall, there is affordable access to care, yet the state struggles to maintain adequate funding, causing wait times and backlogs. The COVID-19 pandemic had a significant role in this problem; however, Oregon has continually struggled to offer reliable substance use treatment outside of the private sector.

State and Local Resources in Oregon

Oregon Health Authority

  • The addiction services provided through the Behavioral Health Services include those for prevention, treatment, and recovery.

The Oregon Recovery Network

  • Oregon Recovers is building a broad, inclusive coalition and waging an aggressive campaign to make Oregon the “Recovery State.” They are tackling the addiction crisis head-on by building a statewide movement focused on implementing a comprehensive policy agenda that will move Oregon from last to first in access to safe, effective, and immediate addiction treatment and recovery support services.

What's Next?

After attending long-term drug rehab in Oregon, it is crucial to receive aftercare to maintain sobriety and reinforce what you learned during treatment. Inpatient drug rehab is effective, but it takes place in a sheltered environment where there is always support. As individuals transition back into their lives after rehab, some stressors and responsibilities may be difficult to deal with. Outpatient aftercare programs, sober living facilities, and other support services are available in Oregon to make your transition easier.
