Financially Preparing For Rehab
Prior to entering rehab, there are financial considerations to prepare for. Besides paying for rehab, there are the financial obligations that should be dealt with to reduce your stress level upon completion of the program. If rehab costs are likely to prohibit you from being able to get the help you need, consider seeking financial assistance for drug rehab. Grants and programs to cover treatment are available. Additionally, if you have insurance it might cover a portion of the costs.
Discuss Leave With Employer
To ensure that you will be in good standing with your employer and still have a job post-rehab, talk with your employer about your leave of absence. Being able to focus on rehab and not worry about finding a new job or facing work-related issues can allow you to prosper during and after treatment.
Pay Your Bills
Using automatic payment options for your bills can be a significant benefit during rehab. Another option would be to arrange for a trusted family member to pay your bills while you are in treatment. No one wants to come home from rehab to be greeted by a pile of overdue bills. Consider how long rehab may last (90 days is common) and anticipate any bills that may arrive between the start and end of your rehab.
