How to Pay for Drug Treatment

  For some people, they may need help paying for rehab if their insurance doesn’t cover rehab or they have a remaining balance. The cost of rehab can be offset by several programs. First, there are scholarships available to help patients pay for rehab, such as our scholarship that is funded by our Banyan Cares program.

In addition to scholarships, many patients get help from friends and family to assist in paying for rehab. This rehab payment approach can include fundraising with the help of friends and family or taking a loan from a loved one to pay for treatment.

Some communities and groups support people when it comes to paying for rehab care. For example, Native American reservations will often pay for the drug and alcohol treatment their residents need to get and stay sober.
