The Costs Involved When Seeking Treatment

May 13, 2016

Heroin addiction is a dangerous substance, and often ends in tragedy. For someone suffering from addiction who finally managed to take the next step and seek help, being turned away because their insurance won’t cover it is one of the last things they need to have happen.

For Courtney Griffin, her death could have been prevented if not for her insurance getting declined. Without it, her treatment would cost $12,000.

Other Options

Cheaper options exist, like state-funded treatment. State-funded treatment is intended to help those who don’t have or can’t afford insurance, or those who cannot pay the necessary costs. These state-sponsored clinics may not offer the same level of treatment and service a private clinic can, but they still offer help, often free of charge for eligible participants.

The Drawback

While these programs offer a great service, they simply can’t accommodate everyone who needs help. This means they often have a major drawback: a wait list. That can end in people who need help never receiving the treatment they so desperately need. Research shows that it’s important to move quickly when a long-term-user is willing to seek help. Their motivation may be fleeting, and missing the window to get them help because of a wait list can be dangerous to their health.
