Long-Term Drug Rehab in Washington

All forms of treatment can be successful and help someone overcome their addiction. Still, it is our professional opinion that a long-term program is the most effective – here are several reasons why:

  • Such programs in Washington are ideal, especially for those who have had multiple relapses or for whom short-term programs have not been successful.
  • With the time allowed for the program, residents can build a healthy routine & structure, which can be beneficial both during and after treatment.
  • By living at the facility, they are taken away from the environment where they usually use alcohol or drugs.
  • Throughout the treatment, they can build meaningful and lasting relationships with other individuals to support themselves.

You must find the right program for you which will greatly help your recovery. As we can see from the information below, various options are available for anyone seeking long-term rehabilitation services in Washington State.

Cost of Treatment in Washington

The cost of treatment in Washington can be anywhere from free to tens of thousands of dollars. And health insurance is usually the determining factor. If someone has health insurance, they can get treatment somewhere covered and pay far less than the full cost.

Paying for Treatment with Medicaid in Washington

Medicaid can cover all treatment expenses where it is accepted, which is mainly state-funded programs. But because this option is so popular, these programs often have long waiting lists which can delay treatment for someone in need. But this is a trade-off considering that Medicaid is free to those who cannot afford private healthcare. Nearly 2 million residents have some form of Medicaid assistance in Washington.

Using Private Insurance to pay for Drug Rehab in Washington

Private health insurance can make rehab more affordable. The person must pay a monthly premium to keep a private health insurance policy unless their employer provides it. But it is accepted as payment by more facilities than Medicaid, improving one’s chances of quickly getting in somewhere without a waiting list.

But for those that cannot afford private health insurance and don’t qualify for Medicaid, it can seem like paying cash for treatment is their only option. Luckily, Washington has accepted federal aid and expanded its Medicaid program to cover more residents. And the state’s exchange Marketplace offers access to certain policies at discounted rates to those who demonstrate financial hardship.

The following insurers are available through Washington’s exchange marketplace:

  • BridgeSpan Health Company
  • Community Health Network of Washington
  • Coordinated Care Corporation
  • Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of the Northwest
  • Kaiser Foundation Health Plan of Washington
  • LifeWise Health Plan of Washington
  • Molina Healthcare of Washington
  • PacificSource Health Plans
  • Premera Blue Cross
  • Regence BlueCross BlueShield of Oregon
  • Regence BlueShield
  • UnitedHealthcare of Oregon

Paying for Treatment when Uninsured

Despite all the assistance available in Washington, many people are still faced with paying for treatment when uninsured. But there are still options for assistance, even in this scenario—for example, over 150 programs in the state offer sliding-scale payment assistance. So, the harder it is for someone to pay for treatment, the more significant discount they get.

This may be the best option since many people who struggle with addiction fail to maintain health insurance. It is never recommended to wait until treatment is needed to try and get insurance. The risks outweigh the potential financial savings.

Addicted.org’s Evaluation of Washington Drug Rehabs

After reviewing state statistics and options available for drug and alcohol rehabilitation in Washington, addicted.org discovered the following pros and cons:

Pros

  • The Washington State Health Care Authority provides funding and oversight for substance use treatment services for people enrolled in Apple Health (Medicaid). However, treatment is limited to alcohol use treatment, involuntary treatment, medication for opioid use disorder, and opioid use treatment.
  • There are more private non-profit substance use treatment providers in the state than private for-profit, 47%, and 39%, respectively—this means more affordable access to treatment for most families. (source N-SSATS).
  • 75% of programs accept Medicaid, and 83% of services take private health insurance. In comparison, 42% provide treatment at no charge or minimal payment for clients who can not pay.

Cons

  • Through the State Health Care Authority, drug and alcohol treatment services are covered by Behavioral Health Organizations and Apple Health fee-for-service programs—this may impact the quality of service as providers are paid for patient turnover.
  • There are over 400 substance use treatment programs in the state. Yet, only 14% are classified as residential non-hospital programs. Generally, inpatient treatment is the best option for addiction.
  • Detoxification programs are relatively limited, with only 5% as residential non-hospital and 3% as hospital inpatient detox. Most are situated in the larger metro areas.
  • Limited in-house support programs include transitional housing, halfway houses, and sober homes, with only 17 listed by SAMHSA.

Overall, there is affordable substance use treatment in the state. More is being done to address the opioid epidemic through prevention and treatment. However, there is a lack of aftercare support options, and families or addicts face wait times and barriers to accessing certain therapies.
