How Common Are Free Rehab Centers?
According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, completely free substance abuse treatment facilities make up only 4 percent of the total facilities available in the United States. However, this does not mean that you cannot find a free treatment program. In addition, partial free programs or centers that provide treatment on a sliding fee scale are also available, and many more of them exist across the country.
In fact, only 23.7% of the rehab facilities in the country provide absolutely no payment assistance whatsoever, which means that the majority of facilities in the US do provide some type of help to those with financial issues. Therefore, it might be easier to find a free or partially free treatment facility than you may have previously believed.

How Do I Know the Rehab Program I’ve Found Is Free?
It is very important to discuss your needs with the staff of the rehab center of your choice before you begin treatment there. Just as it is important to determine whether or not a program will accept your insurance before being admitted, it is also necessary to find out if your income, financial need, and other factors will qualify you for free treatment. You may also want to ask if the program has any fees that have not yet been discussed before you begin treatment.
According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, it is very important that your rehab program attends to your needs, even those not specifically associated with your substance abuse. As such, making sure that the program you choose will attend to these needs is part of the admission process, and potential patients should ask as many questions as possible in order to safely determine whether or not the program is suitable for them. Our treatment advisors are also available to help make this determination.
