Government-Funded Financial Assistance
Financial assistance for drug rehab can be found in government-sponsored programs, such as Medicare, Medicaid and HealthCare.gov marketplace plans. If you meet certain income requirements or other criteria, you may qualify for free or low-cost health insurance plans that cover treatment for substance use disorders.
If you do not qualify, there are still state-funded rehabs in Florida that have flexible or low-cost payment options available. The Florida Department of Children and Families provides a helpful resource that lists all Florida state mental health treatment facilities. Social workers, counselors, facility representatives, community leaders and nonprofit organizations can also help you find low-cost programs and financial assistance for rehab treatment.
Grant and Loan Programs
SAMHSA is the primary source of drug rehab grants throughout the nation. Recently, SAMHSA provided Florida with $1.9 million in grants for substance abuse treatment and rehabilitation. These funds help increase access to care, lower costs and provide people with new opportunities for treatment. Additionally, some treatment facilities offer low-interest drug rehab loans that help people to afford addiction treatment.
