Healthcare can be costly. Especially when it’s not a common service, like rehab.
Most health insurances have little to no coverage for addiction treatment in their policies, leading people to think that treatment will be out of their price range. It’s true, if you just look at costs without researching the options, then treatment could very well appear to be out of your budget. But it doesn’t have to be. Even if you don’t think it’s possible to afford addiction treatment, there are things you can do to ward off substance abuse. Recovery is possible.
Don’t Give Up
If your financial situation is dire, you might qualify for scholarships or price reductions with the treatment center that aren’t broadcast as common knowledge, but are in place for such situations. It never hurts to ask.
Be persistent with your insurance. Also, be prepared. Scout out a few possible treatment centers before you call your insurance agent. Having specific details to give them to crosscheck with your policy will get you the most accurate information.
Read a Book (or an App)!
Self-help books can offer plenty of advice whether you’re currently in treatment, waiting for it, or have already completed it. A recovered addict knows the importance of staying diligent to avoid relapse. Your local library should have a self-help section if you can’t buy them.
Several smartphone apps are available that you can download to help you keep on track. ImQuit-QuitAddiction, Daily Recovery App, Self Help, and Sobriety Counter to name a few, are on Google play.
Free Support Groups
You’ll likely find a support group which focuses on your addiction if you live in or near a major city. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) have been proven to help people get sober and stay sober. However, atheists and agnostics may relate better to programs like Rational Recovery, Moderation Management, or Secular Organizations for Sobriety.
Don’t forget to look into online support groups if you are unable to attend meetings for whatever reason.
If you’re serious about getting sober, then you’ll want to use every tool at your disposal. There is no shame in asking for help, especially when battling substance abuse. The more help you can get the better. You owe it to yourself to keep at it.
