What Are The Payment Options?

At Athens Addiction Recovery Center, we understand that the financial obligations that come with professional treatment for addiction can be an obstacle. We want to ensure that the treatment plan meets your needs. At the same time, our treatment team is ready to present options that are affordable for the client and his or her family. 

When you call us for a free assessment and consultation, our admissions representative will ask you for detailed information to provide you with a confidential plan of care. By effectively establishing the specific needs of each client, we can tailor plans to best accommodate every situation. If our treatment program does not meet your needs or financial limitations, our goal is to refer you to another treatment option that will fit your diagnosis and financial situation.  

There are several factors that influence treatment costs. Some of these include the diagnosis, recommended length of stay to optimize treatment, any specialized services that may be necessary for a particular situation, and the applicable insurance coverage and specific payment option preferences. We can help you navigate all of these with care and personalized service. 

As we have demonstrated, each client’s situation may be different and costs may vary. Our admissions representatives are extensively trained to determine care plan options based on the information you share with us. That said, it is imperative to be as accurate and forthcoming as you can. Our representatives will take the time to discuss all the details and find the options that best fit the client’s needs. 

Below are some methods that can be used to cover the treatment expenses, and at times a combination of these methods may be appropriate: 

Insurance Plans 

Depending on plan benefits, the majority of treatment costs may be taken care of by insurance coverage. AARC can help you pre-authorize what your plan may or may not cover. We have specialists who are well versed in dealing with insurance companies and determining the benefits of each particular plan to ensure that clients get the reimbursement they are entitled to. When you call us, we can verify your insurance benefits at no cost to you and explain what your policy covers  


Personal Gifts or Loans 

When insurance doesn’t cover the entire cost of treatment, sometimes loved ones cover the costs or lend money to provide for an individual’s treatment. While those closest to the client often are understandably exhausted emotionally and/or financially, they understand that the costs involved with treatment may break a cycle of enabling and co-dependence. They can feel good about providing financial support and encouragement in a way that is healthy and a step towards change.   

Evaluating the Cost of Treatment 

The financial and emotional costs of addiction are staggering. When considering the costs of treatment, keep in mind the costs incurred from lost wages, legal problems, lost relationships, and all the other myriad of ways addiction destroys the lives of clients and their families. Investing in a path to recovery may stop the devastation and prevent additional costs like these from happening in the future. 

Complimentary Coverage Verification 

Determining your insurance coverage for treatment is an important process, and it’s one that we can help you with at no cost or obligation. There is nothing worse for a client or his or her family member than to be on hold for hours, only to get through to the insurance company rep and not have all the information or codes needed to verify coverage. Let our experts cut through the red tape and get you the answers you need quickly and efficiently.
