TIPS: If you feel you're going to use

  • Find a peer support group: Washington 12-step meetings and aftercare programs from the Addicted.org directory.
  • Stay active and distracted—become a member at the local community center, join a gym, or take long or short walks.
  • Utilize free or open behavioral health counseling or contact Washington 2-1-1.
  • Find an extroverted activity—experience backpacking, camping, Eastern Washington, Mount Rainer, and the outdoors.
  • Avoid risky situations that lead to relapse. Be aware of commonly used drugs and triggers.

TIPS: If you want to help someone

  • Refer them to local resources through Addicted.org or the Washington State Department of Social and Health Services.
  • Be aware of overdose risks—resources available through the Washington State Department of Health and Opioid Overdose Prevention.
  • Assessment and screening are vital tools. These resources are available at the state and local levels.
  • Consider hiring a professional interventionist and plan a family intervention.
  • Avoid enabling anyone addicted to drugs or alcohol as it worsens the situation.

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 and 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 listing above, various options are available for anyone seeking long-term rehabilitation services in Washington state.

Getting Help With Substance Use: The Basics

Paying for Treatment in Washington

Paying for 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. There are also rehabs that take Medicaid 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 the Washington Health Insurance Marketplace Guide 2023:

  • BridgeSpan Health Company
  • Community Health Plan 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. Multiple 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.

You can contact one of the treatment specialists at DRS for more information on how to pay for treatment. Or contact the center directly.

Ask a Professional

  • What are the costs involved with substance use treatment in Washington?

    The costs involved with substance use treatment in Washington vary depending on services.

    • The average cost of inpatient drug rehab in Washington is $56,500. However, this price point changes significantly.
    • Outpatient drug and alcohol rehab begins at $1700 and goes up with longer programs.
    • Detoxification programs, including medical detox, cost between $200 and $1000 daily.
    • Low-cost and free drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs are available in Washington.
  • How long does someone have to stay or attend a drug and alcohol rehab center in Washington?

    The length of time someone must remain at a drug or alcohol rehab center in Washington varies and is entirely based on individual needs.

    • Detoxification programs for substance use generally last seven days but longer with medical supervision.
    • The average length of stay at an inpatient drug rehab program in Washington is 28 to 60 days, with some residential programs lasting three to twelve months.
    • A stay at an outpatient program can last 12 to 18 weeks.
  • What are the most commonly abused drugs in Washington?

    According to local treatment admissions, the most commonly used substances in Washington are heroin and amphetamines.

    If you begin to notice a loved one exhibiting signs of amphetamine or heroin addiction, it is critical to intervene. The combination of heroin and other drugs is dangerous and does increase the risk of overdose.

DRS’ Evaluation of Washington Drug Rehabs

Overall, the state has an excellent variety of substance use treatment providers. Yet, the bulk of programs our outpatient centers. Residential and detoxification programs are available, but not in the same number as outpatient care.

Financially, the bulk of programs accepts Medicaid or private health insurance. In addition, numerous options provide sliding fee scales or treatment at no charge or minimal payment for clients who cannot pay. Our experts advise contacting multiple facilities which are being considered. Ask about payment options. In addition, contact your Medicaid office or health insurance provider and find out precisely what insurance covers.

State and Local Resources in Washington

  • The Health Care Authority (HCA) provides funding and oversight for substance use treatment services for people enrolled in Apple Health (Medicaid).

The Washington Recovery Help Line

  • The Washington Recovery Help Line is a program of Crisis Connections. They offer an anonymous, confidential 24-hour help line for Washington State residents. This helpline is for those experiencing substance use disorder, problem gambling, or a mental health challenge.

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.
