South Dakota Long-Term Drug Rehab

Long-term substance use treatment is often the most effective and comprehensive form of rehab. Here are a few reasons why:

  • Depending on the client’s needs, long-term treatment can last anywhere from one to six months.
  • Clients at a long-term program in South Dakota can spend more time building structure and healthy behaviors, habits, and routines.
  • They remain at the facility for an adequate period, which significantly increases the rate of success.
  • Aftercare programs can be more comprehensive since a sober network was built during treatment.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Treatment in South Dakota

Substance use treatment is the best way to overcome a drug or alcohol addiction problem; however, the cost of treatment can be a massive barrier for some. Medicaid and other forms of health insurance are some of the main ways that treatment is paid for in the state, yet many are still struggling to end their substance use problem. With the increase in the drug crisis, there has also been an increase in drug rehab programs and ways to afford the treatment that is dire to end drug or alcohol addiction.

Paying for Treatment with Medicaid in South Dakota

Medicaid is government-funded health insurance that provides all patients with basic drug and alcohol treatment services. This can include IOP programs, medical detoxification, in-patient, and long-term residential programs, among others. The programs covered by the state Medicaid can often experience an influx of patients, which can cause a waitlist for treatment if the facility is at capacity for clients. This does not mean that there will be no options available however it can be more challenging in some cases. Medicaid will have the information on which programs will be covered in your area. The state of South Dakota has also approved a Medicaid expansion and it will be effective starting July 2023.

Using Private Insurance to pay for Drug Rehab in South Dakota

With the help of a private health insurance policy, drug users will have access to drug and alcohol treatment centers that can be either partially or fully covered by the insurance provider. Private health insurance providers work with specific drug and alcohol treatment centers to cover treatment. Coverage will depend on the type of policy the individual has and the programs that work directly with the insurance provider. Your health insurance company will be able to inform you on which programs they cover as well as what your anticipated out-of-pocket expenses will be if any. Private health insurance typically works with some of the better drug rehab programs.

According to the South Dakota Health Insurance Marketplace Guide 2023, the following insurers are available in South Dakota:

  • Avera
  • Sanford
  • Wellmark Blue Cross Blue Shield of South Dakota

Paying for Treatment When Uninsured

Although there are many insurance options available, many residents are uninsured throughout the country and in South Dakota. And while insurance typically offers the most cost-effective solutions for drug rehabilitation services, there are other options for those without health insurance. Self-pay programs do not require patients to have insurance and can usually work with a payment plan for treatment. A sliding scale is another alternative to making treatment more affordable. It is done by utilizing the individual’s income to determine the program’s cost, ensuring that all patients can enroll in affordable drug treatment.

Ask a Professional

  • What does it cost to treat substance use and addiction in South Dakota?

    The costs involved to treat substance use treatment in South Dakota include some of the following:

    • The average cost of inpatient drug rehab in South Dakota can go as high as $56,100. Prices change significantly based on several factors.
    • The average cost of outpatient drug rehab begins at $1900 and can increase.
    • The average cost of drug and alcohol detox in South Dakota is between $200 and $1000 per day.
    • Low-cost and free drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs are available in South Dakota.
  • How long does a person have to stay at drug rehab in South Dakota?

    The time a person spends at drug rehab is different for each person and includes some of the following:

    • The average length of stay at a detox center in South Dakota is seven days, while medical detox lasts longer.
    • The average length of stay at an inpatient program in South Dakota is 28 to 60 days, and some residential services last 3 to 12 months.
    • The average time spent attending an outpatient treatment is 12 to 18 weeks.
  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in South Dakota?

    According to local treatment admissions, the most commonly used substances in South Dakota are alcohol and amphetamines.

    If you begin to notice a loved one exhibiting the signs of alcoholism or amphetamine addiction, it is critical to intervene. Alcohol combined with other drugs increases the risk of relapse.

DRS’ Evaluation of South Dakota Drug Rehabs

There are limited substance use treatment options in South Dakota. Most of the programs are private non-profit facilities, and very few are operated at the state level. Our experts recommend contacting the available programs and asking about admission and wait lists. The majority of facilities provide outpatient care, with a handful offering residential and detox services.

On a positive note, almost three-quarters of the facilities accept Medicaid or private health insurance. Roughly half of the programs take state-financed health insurance plans other than Medicaid. In addition, there are numerous options for sliding fee scales and treatment at no charge or minimal payment. We recommend contacting more than one program and asking about payment options. Also, contact your Medicaid offer or health insurance provider to determine what is covered through insurance.

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.
