Many Palisades Park, New Jersey, residents struggle with substance abuse, and every one of them deserves to find help for themselves or their loved ones if they are suffering from addiction. However, the price of rehab is often what people say prevents them from getting the help they need.
In 2016, only 23 people sought addiction treatment in Palisades Park, making up 1% of those who sought treatment in Bergen County overall.1 And, out of all the county’s residents, a total of 36% were uninsured that year.1
Substance use disorders often require medical attention, and professional addiction treatment is one of the best, safest options for recovery. Over the years, changes have been made to the way we view addiction and mental health in this country, making it easier to afford rehab than it was previously.2
In fact, the Affordable Care Act designated mental health and substance abuse treatment as an essential healthcare benefit. This means healthcare plans sold through the Healthcare Marketplace must cover behavioral and mental health treatments—which includes substance abuse.3
If you don’t have insurance, there are options for you as well. As of 2008, 76.3 rehab facilities in the U.S. offered at least some sort of payment assistance to patients.4 These facilities often prioritize patients and payment options based on the income of the patient or other circumstances that indicate financial need.4
