Cost is often a deterrent to those who desperately need addiction treatment. Thousands of people in Maryland and all over the country are addicted to illicit substances but don’t seek help because they feel that they can’t afford it.
Addiction can take over your life and infiltrate your health, career, and even your family. Once you develop a dependency on a psychoactive substance, it’s difficult to contain it to just weekends, just with your friends, or just after work. In many cases, illicit drug use can lead to deteriorating health, infectious diseases, or overdose. Your life is worth more than the cost of effective treatment.
As a freestanding detox center, Maryland House means that you don’t have to commit to a long-term residential stay financially. Instead,
you can get the immediate help you need and let our clinical professionals help you find a way to continue your recovery after detox. A continuum of care is proven to have a better chance of leading to long-lasting recovery. However, it’s more important to get started with detox as soon as possible.
Maryland House Detox is covered by most health insurance plans. Insurance companies today recognize addiction as a disease that’s in need of treatment. Additionally, we offer experienced and certified medical care that is proven to alleviate withdrawal symptoms during detox and safeguard against relapse on the way to recovery.
Many private insurers offer fairly comprehensive coverage when it comes to medical and evidence-based treatment options. Plus, Maryland House Detox is prepared to help you deal with your insurance company. Navigating the details of your insurance plan can be difficult, especially when you are faced with life complications that often come with a substance abuse disorder. You don’t have to manage the minutiae of your insurance plan alone. Your doctor and insurance provider can help you find any needed information. Plus, Maryland House Detox is just a call away at (855) 918-4085 if you would like more information about detox or substance abuse insurance information.
GET THE HELP YOU NEED TODAY
Addiction should be addressed as quickly as possible. There were 63,632 drug overdoses in 2016 alone and each year the number grows. However, with timely treatment, you can avoid dangerous overdose and begin to treat addiction at its source. Detox is especially important for alcohol and benzodiazepine use disorders. Such central nervous system depressants can potentially come with deadly withdrawal symptoms. Going through withdrawal on your own in such cases is dangerous and could be life-threatening. Insurance companies are also likely to cover detox for drugs with medically dangerous withdrawal symptoms, because there is a clear and present danger to the client. If you want to learn more about detox and our facility, contact us today! Our staff is ready for your call. We’ll walk you through the entire process from first the phone call to admission.

TYPES OF PAYMENT
When it comes to paying for addiction treatment, you have three basic options depending on your specific circumstances. The best option is if you already have an insurance provider. You can give them or Maryland House Detox a call to find out if treatment is covered and, if so, how much? Most insurance companies will cover at least a portion of treatment, especially detox for certain drugs like alcohol and benzodiazepines.
Government aid covers limited but available resources. While most private facilities that offer state-of-the-art resources can’t accept Medicare or Medicaid, you do have some options available to you. Finally, private pay is an option if you don’t have any other addiction treatment insurance coverage options.
Thankfully, we have a better understanding of the nature of addiction today. The idea that it is a moral failing that needs to be treated as a crime and punished by law is slowly giving way to the truth that it is a disease that can and should be treated. Today’s insurance companies have also come to realize that addiction is a disease that can be treated with both medical treatment and psychosocial interventions. Most insurance providers will cover part or all of your stay at a detox or treatment facility, especially when that facility has a certified team of medical professionals and experienced clinicians like Maryland House Detox.
MEDICARE OR MEDICAID
We can’t accept Medicare or Medicaid insurance as payment for detox. However, if you don’t have any other way to pay for treatment, call the National SAMHSA hotline at 1-800-662-HELP to learn about your options.
If you don’t have insurance or if your insurance won’t pay, you still have the option to pay privately. If you already have the resources to do that, we will work with you to create affordable payment plan options. If not, many people use private loans to secure funding for treatment. Remember, detox and treatment are about getting your life out from under the oppression of addiction. A sober lifestyle in which you no longer have to worry about the consequences of active addiction is a valuable investment. Give us a call to learn about our pricing and payment plan opportunities.
