How Scholarships And Grants For Alcohol Rehab Help
Scholarships allow patients to attend treatment by deducting an amount of the cost of treatment, or in some cases, the full price of treatment. This is beneficial as it encourages financial assistance and support for those who need recovery. Alcohol rehab costs can be an obstacle for those wanting to get help, and additional funding can be an additional motivating factor to get alcohol treatment.
Rehab facilities most commonly offer scholarships to those battling addiction; however, various organizations and foundations also provide this form of financial aid. Not all patients attempting to attend rehab can qualify for grants and scholarships and partial scholarships may be available to patients who qualify. Discovering which rehab offers scholarships can be easy if the patient is willing to do the research to gather details.
Sites like SAMHSA and Grant Watch can help. Researching and contacting rehabs to gather information about partial or full scholarships can help the patient make a decision on which rehab to attend for alcohol detox. Lastly, there are some government programs, churches, non-profit grants, and scholarships available to offer support for those needing alcohol treatment.
Types Of Scholarships And Grants
Rehabs that offer scholarship programs allow patients to attend rehab at lower costs. Several types of scholarships are available depending on the facility. Types of scholarships and grants for rehab include but are not limited to:
Block grants are available via SAMHSA, called the Substance Abuse Prevention and Treatment Block Grant (SABG) program. The program provides funds to every state in the US, supports individuals beginning recovery, and provides primary prevention services (focusing on those who are at high-risk for substance abuse). Secondly, partial and full scholarships provide patients with financial support. Fortunately, patients can use insurance and still qualify for full or partial scholarships. Different facilities will cover varying percentages depending on their financial availability.

Qualifying For Scholarships
Scholarships should be considered for prospective patients unable to finance alcohol treatment and patients who are serious about their recovery process. Help.org notes that applying for the 10,000 Bed Scholarship, for example, is a strong suggestion as a non-profit scholarship for patients who are dedicated to recovery.
Future patients must be willing to experience rehab with dedication. Future patients may need documentation for proof to qualify.
Financing Rehab: Insurance Options And Costs
Rehab can vary in cost, depending on if someone has used insurance or has used scholarships. Medicaid, Medicare, the Affordable Care Act, and other types of insurance are accepted at some facilities. This helps patients save money while getting care. Additionally, the cost of rehab varies based on the program one chooses. For example, inpatient would be more costly than outpatient since patients are utilizing the facility full-time. Future patients have the option of choosing the best type of program for their needs.
The price of inpatient treatment will vary on the facility and the length of stay. Most inpatient treatment programs will span 30 days, but some offer longer programs that span 60 to 90 days. For someone wanting outpatient treatment, they can save money since they are on campus for minimal hours throughout the week. They are not utilizing food, room, and board and can save more.
Some patients pay $1,400 to $10,000 for 3 months of outpatient rehab and others can pay $3,000 to $10,000 for intensive outpatient rehab. Factors like staying local versus traveling can impact the cost of rehab for patients as traveling for rehab is typically more costly. Lastly, state rehab may be of little to no cost for some patients.
