Affordable Alcohol Treatment Options

Many people who are addicted to alcohol or who suffer from alcohol abuse do not seek help simply because they cannot find an affordable treatment option that works for them. This is very sad news because studies show that more than 90% of those who suffer from substance abuse will never get the help that they need and many opt out of even trying simply because of their lack of knowledge of the affordable alcohol treatment options that are readily available to assist them.

The most affordable options for the treatment of alcoholism are:

  • Outpatient counseling & therapy
  • AA
  • Sliding fee inpatient treatment
  • Free inpatient treatment
  • Low cost inpatient treatment
Affordable Drug Treatment Program

Let us help you find affordable alcohol treatment.

Not all options are available in every city or town but most offer AA, most have outpatient counseling which is most often very affordable and all offer some form of affordable inpatient treatment. Many state insurance plans even provide coverage for alcohol treatment which can help to cover the costs associated with inpatient or outpatient care if you need it and if it is determined by your primary care provider that alcoholism treatment is necessary for your own medical health and well-being.

Some treatment centers offer what is known as a sliding fee scale which makes treatment more affordable for those who need it. The way a sliding fee scale works is that it provides you with access to treatment and the fees that you pay are based on your ability to pay. If you have a job and make minimum wage, you will pay a significantly smaller portion of the total cost of treatment than someone who works in a high end position make triple the salary. The fees are based on income and assets and will differ from one patient to the next.

AA is another form of affordable alcohol treatment. In fact, AA meetings are free to attend and millions of people attribute the support and peer guidance of AA as well as the twelve steps of recovery for their own sobriety. If you can’t afford to pay for any other type of treatment or even if you are attending outpatient counseling for your alcohol addiction, AA is a great option for continued peer support and care.

Many low cost treatment programs can be found throughout the country offering everything from counseling and therapy to medication based treatment and monitoring. The most important thing to keep in mind is that treatment for alcohol addiction or alcoholism should never be considered out of reach for you simply due to money—there are affordable alcohol treatment options available for just about any budget and need.
