Alcohol, marijuana, cocaine and other substances are widely used throughout North Carolina leading to an increased need for addiction treatment that meets the unique needs of diverse populations.

Even smaller towns have their share of inpatient rehabs in North Carolina to help those who are struggling with addiction to crystal meth, prescription drugs, or other substances.

Paying for North Carolina Inpatient Rehab

Financing is a major concern for most addicts and their families—how will I pay for rehab? I can’t afford that…I have no job…my family doesn’t want to help me anymore…All of these are common situations—family drops out; nobody wants to help you because you’ve already broken so many promises; you’ve hit “rock bottom” and lost everything to your addiction—but you can’t lose HOPE.

Paying for rehab in North Carolina may seem impossible if you’re in any of the above situations but it’s really not. Help is available to those who do not have adequate insurance coverage or a job—you’ll find the following affordable treatment options in the state:

  • Government subsidized programs
  • Sliding fee programs
  • Reduced cost programs
  • Free rehab centers

If you have insurance, and you purchased it through the healthcare.gov marketplace, you are guaranteed some coverage for addiction to drugs or alcohol. This is because all healthcare.gov marketplace insurance plans are required to cover addiction as one of the ten primary coverages that insurers must now provide—and addiction is NOT considered a pre-existing condition.

If you’ve been arrested or otherwise in trouble for your addiction, the government may step in and pay for your treatment in an inpatient rehab center in North Carolina rather than ensue the cost of you being incarcerated in one of the local jails. Additionally, income based programs and rehab grants are available at many inpatient rehabs in NC to help those who have limited funds to put towards their recovery.

For help finding a rehab center in North Carolina that will treat your addiction and provide you with a chance at recovery, call 1-800-552-0697 to be connected with a caring treatment specialist that is ready to take your call.

How Long Does Inpatient Rehab in NC Last?

Depending on your situation, the severity of your addiction, and various other factors, you may spend 30-days or more in an inpatient rehab center. Most North Carolina inpatient rehabs provide a minimum of four weeks of residential care that includes monitoring, support and medical treatment.

You may spend longer in rehab if:

  • You have been addicted for a very long time.
  • You are addicted to methadone or other maintenance drugs used in the treatment of opiate withdrawal.
  • You are addicted to a prescription drug such as Adderall, Ativan, or prescription painkillers.
  • You suffer from co-occurring disorders such as mental or physical health problems in addition to the addiction to drugs or alcohol.
  • You have been in rehab before and have relapsed.

Addition to the above factors, your age may also play a role in how long it takes for you to recover from addiction. As we grow older, we aren’t as likely to bounce back from addiction as quickly as we once did—as such, as you age, you may require more in depth treatment for your addiction and this treatment may be more costly and may take more time.

The National Institute on Drug Abuse recommends at least 90 days of rehabilitation in order to create a strong foundation for recovery.

Most rehab centers in North Carolina start with 30 days of rehab and extend treatment up to 120 days or more depending on unique patient needs. Even after you spend 30 days or more in a residential treatment setting, you should continue you counseling and therapy in an outpatient setting for at least the 90 days that is recommended by NIDA to ensure your greatest chance for long-term recovery.

Choosing Between Inpatient vs. Outpatient Rehab

If you’re wondering whether you should seek the help of an inpatient center or an outpatient program, consider the following:

  • Inpatient rehab provides consistent care that ensures you remain sober while you live at the facility.
  • Outpatient rehab may seem lower cost, but when you combine the cost of bills, food and such at home with the cost of treatment, it generally averages out pretty close to what you would pay for inpatient care.
  • Inpatient rehab offers you the best chance for long-term recovery and minimized risk for relapse.
  • Outpatient rehab encourages you to remain sober at home without around-the-clock support. This can increase your risk of early relapse if you’re not ready to go about recovery alone.
  • Inpatient rehab can provide you with immediate medical care as needed if dangerous or uncomfortable symptoms of withdrawal occur.
