For many, the idea of holistic rehab sounds good, but it just feels too unaffordable. The idea of having a chance to start a healthy recovery with the help of a treatment program that works on total mind, body, and spiritual wellness is so appealing to so many who struggle with an addiction. Unfortunately, too many people don’t pursue attending a holistic treatment facility because they just think that they cannot afford to go.
When we think of holistic treatment, we have images of the uber-rich enjoying time beside a pool, looking glamorous, enjoying massages and gourmet meals. The average person believes that they are simply “not good enough,” to attend a holistic treatment program.
This couldn’t be farther from the truth, and there are many ways that holistic rehab can be made to be much more affordable.
- Insurance, insurance, insurance. If you have health insurance, you will probably find that it covers at least part of your stay at a holistic rehab facility. While it might not cover some of the extras, like your gourmet meals or your daily massage, you might find that these options can be tweaked to be made more affordable. However, you never know what you’ll wind up paying until you give us a call and let us check into it for you.
- Payment plans. Many rehabs offer affordable payment plans, and believe it or not, you’ll probably find that many holistic rehabs do the same. This is great news because even if you find you wind up owing a little something beyond what your insurance will cover, you might not have all the funds at one time. A payment plan can make it affordable to attend holistic rehab.
- You might qualify for government funding. Yes, government funding for addiction treatment does exist, and it’s becoming more and more available with time. So, consider looking into this option if you’re having a hard time coming up with the funding for your stay in holistic rehab.
- A little help from friends and loved ones. Your parents might not be able to afford to pay the whole tab for your stay in a holistic treatment program, but you might find that they can afford to help with a few payments, and that can make a significant difference in how much rehab costs you. It’s scary, especially when you’ve probably burned a lot of bridges, but if you ask to help with a few payments after you’ve shown you’re committed to your recovery, you might find that your loved ones are receptive to the idea.
Holistic rehab is an excellent addiction treatment option for many who want to start kicking their addictions, and it doesn’t have to be out of reach financially when you know how many ways you can cover the cost of your stay.
