LowCostDrugRehabIn-patient rehab can be a very important first step in helping people with addiction start taking their lives back. The ability to break from normal life and focus all your energy and attention but recovery can make a huge difference in starting off the journey to a sober life.

Your addiction might feel impossible to deal with, but change is possible. You need a treatment center with as few barriers to treatment as possible, so that nothing will get in the way of your recovery. While the cost of some centers may seem very high, the Gooden Center has several provisions to make treatment affordable for you.

Working with Insurance:

The Affordable Care Act passed in 2014 considers substance abuse one of its top ten medical issues that should be covered by all medical benefit plans. That means any medical insurance must provide treatment for recovery. This means that access to rehab will likely be covered by your insurance plan. The Gooden Center accepts medical insurance plans that can cover the cost of your treatment, including: Cigna Aetna Anthem Healthnet Permanente United Healthcare

If you have questions about your coverage, you can write your information on this form to have an admissions specialist get back to you. Your insurance provider will also have helpful information about deductibles, co-pays, and the steps you must take for your treatment to get approved.


The life saving treatment of recovery is too important to let cost be a barrier. For that reason, the Gooden Center has made several allowances of payment plans and scholarships to help make it low-cost and affordable. Many of the alumni of the Gooden Center’s program are so grateful for their treatment that they donate to help offset the cost to help people who otherwise wouldn’t be able to afford treatment.

If you are highly motivated to seriously begin your recovery journey, but only able to pay a portion of the costs needed to run the center, we would be happy to work with you to allow you to take part with some financial assistance. All you have to do is ask. The Gooden Center does everything it can to both keep costs as a low possible while still offering high-quality care, and wants to work with you to make this life-changing decision affordable.


You may also be worried that taking a total break from your job for rehab may be difficult, or financially infeasible. If this is the case, there are opportunities for you to take advantage of the Gooden Center’s programs while still being able to make it to work. If you are eligible, you can participate in the intensive outpatient program, and maintain a regular work schedule while still focusing on your recovery. Along with regular peer support groups, the Gooden Center also offers a Jobs Group where you can deal specifically with the challenges that working presents in early recovery.

Drug addiction can get very expensive. On the most immediate level, there is the cost of the substances themselves, but you should also factor in health risks, lost of time at work, and other ways in which the addiction interferes with your life in expensive ways. Rehab may be a one-time high expense, but if you follow through and work hard, it can reap many benefits that will continue throughout your life. In that larger perspective, addiction treatment will probably end up saving you a lot of money. It is something you can’t afford not to do. By getting in touch with our staff and explaining your situation, we can work with you and find a way to afford our program. Do not let the question of money get in the way of making this life-saving decision.
