TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Virginia 12-step meetings and aftercare programs from the DRS directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—become a member at the local community center, join a gym, or begin taking long or short walks.
  • Utilize free or open behavioral health counseling or contact 2-1-1 Virginia.
  • Find an extroverted activity—experience the outdoor scenery, history and heritage, and endless attractions.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Be aware of stress and triggers.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through DRS or the Virginia Medicaid Department of Medical Assistance Services.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through the Virginia Department of Health, Primary and Overdose Prevention.
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. These resources are available at the state and local levels.
  • Organize a family intervention and hire a professional interventionist.
  • Avoid enabling anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol as it worsens the situation.

Virginia Long-Term Drug Rehab

DRS believes that long-term treatment is the most successful option, in our professional opinion. Here are some reasons why it is the best way to achieve life-long sobriety:

  • Rehabilitation programs last 30, 60, or 90 days or longer. Depending on individual needs, the length of time spent in treatment is imperative to success.
  • There is more focus on the treatment’s physical, mental, and spiritual aspects. Because patients remain in treatment longer, there is more opportunity to dive deep and address every part of addiction and underlying issues connected to the problem.
  • The location is away from the drug-using environment. A significant benefit of long-term treatment is that most facilities are located in remote rural areas or on the outskirts of cities. We recommend finding a program as far from your current environment as you feel comfortable.
  • Long-term programs provide 24/7 support and extended care. Going through rehabilitation is not easy. However, having access to around-the-clock support and care takes a huge weight off your shoulders.
  • Long-term options offer more than one treatment methodology. Treating addiction involves more than one approach, and no single tactic suits everyone. These facilities provide a more in-depth approach and a mixture of traditional and non-traditional methods.

Regardless of your situation in life, there is help available. Our addiction professionals ensure you locate resources that meet your needs. In addition, it is something you can afford and access immediately or when you need the service.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Drug Rehab in Virginia

Virginia’s treatment cost can vary greatly depending on a few factors. Chiefly among these is the type of treatment the person is pursuing and whether they have health insurance coverage. Not all substance use treatment facilities accept all forms of health insurance, so it is vital to check this out before assuming one can go to any program with an open bed. There are also rehabs that take Medicaid in Virginia.

Using Private Insurance to Pay for Drug Rehab in Virginia

Private health insurance may give someone a better opportunity to find treatment quickly in Virginia. Usually, privately-funded programs will not accept Medicaid, making private insurance or cash payment the only options. These programs rarely have waiting lists. Unfortunately, private health insurance can be quite expensive and is unaffordable for many.

Thankfully, Virginia has expanded their Medicaid program as of 2019, providing coverage to an additional 494,000 residents by December 2020. Those who qualify based on income can receive a discounted rate on participating private insurance policies, putting coverage within realistic reach.

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

  • Aetna Health
  • Aetna Life
  • CareFirst
  • Cigna
  • Group Hospitalization and Medical Services, Inc.
  • Health Keepers/Anthem
  • Innovation Health Plan
  • Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of the Mid-Atlantic
  • Optima
  • Piedmont Community Healthcare
  • Oscar Health
  • Optimum Choice

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

One of the sad parts of addiction is that the person usually stops taking care of themselves, which means they often don’t have health insurance. Getting them covered before entering treatment is usually risky and not recommended. It can take several weeks to obtain Medicaid coverage, and private insurance policies are only available for enrollment during specific periods of the year. Even if it happens to be during that time, most treatment services will not be covered until the policy has been maintained for several months.

Thankfully, some programs recognize this and want to help. Many programs in Virginia offer sliding-scale payment assistance. Sliding scale refers to a pre-established discount that can be given based on the person’s income. You can contact one of the treatment specialists at DRS for more information on how to pay for treatment. Or contact the center directly.

DRS’ Evaluation of Drug Rehabs in Virginia

The state has extensive coverage of substance use treatment through the Virginia Medicaid Department of Medical Assistance Services. There is a comprehensive continuum of addiction treatment services for anyone enrolled in Medicaid. Additionally, there is a well-rounded selection of programs, which includes outpatient, residential, or detox.

Financially, over three-quarters of the programs take Medicaid, yet most accept private health insurance. Less than half of the programs take state-financed health insurance plans other than Medicaid. A good percentage of programs offer sliding fee scales to clients or treatment at no charge or minimal payment for clients who cannot pay. Our experts recommend contacting multiple facilities. Ask about payment options and wait times. Also, contact your local Medicaid office or health insurance provider. Find out precisely 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.
