Treatment Approaches in Arizona
For almost 9 decades, 12-step programs have been serving as a structured, community-based pathway to achieve and maintain recovery from substance abuse. Originally started as a way to help alcoholics, there are now 12-step programs for drug addiction as well. Based on a set of 12 principles that give patients tools to work toward a permanent recovery, these programs include community meetings, an acknowledgment of the addiction, dependence upon a higher power, and an emphasis on honesty and transparency. Their ability to foster supportive communities and provide structure are proven to be effective: A study of veterans found that 12-step programs double the18-month abstinence rate for participants.

Top Cities For Recovery:
Almost 9.5 million people in 2019 suffered from both a mental illness and a substance abuse disorder, according to a report by SAMHSA. This number was 300,000 more than in 2018, with SAMHSA reporting that individuals with mental illness are far more likely to suffer from a SUD as well. Called co-occurring or dual diagnosis, this situation requires specialized treatment to help patients manage both of their conditions successfully. 275 Arizona facilities provide these tailored services for patients with dual diagnoses.
Patients seeking help for their addiction often have to go through a period of withdrawal from the substance to which they are addicted. Called detox, this first step of recovery most safely occurs in a detox program where the patient is medically supervised through their withdrawal. In Arizona, most detox programs (68 facilities) are classified as outpatient rehab, although detox facilities are also available as part of non-hospital residential and inpatient hospital rehab programs.
Short-Term Inpatient Rehab
Severe addiction may require inpatient rehab. Inpatient programs that last less than 30 days are referred to as short-term inpatient rehab and provide round-the-clock services for patients. In Arizona, 16.1 percent of facilities (72 total) are classified as short-term inpatient rehab.
Long-Term Residential Rehab
Inpatient programs that provide 24/7 care for longer than 30 days are referred to as long-term residential rehab programs. 17.7 percent, or 79 facilities in Arizona offer this type of addiction recovery program, which is often used to treat the most severe and complex addictions patients experience.
Rehab Costs In Arizona
No two patients pay exactly the same costs for their rehab, since drug rehab costs vary depending upon many different factors, including the following:
- Rehab program
- Treatment approaches
- Insurance coverage
- And more
However, concerns about cost should not prevent individuals from seeking drug addiction recovery in Arizona. The many rehab facilities in the state accept a wide variety of payment types, and a few even offer free treatment to make recovery possible regardless of a patient's financial situation.
Private Health Insurance for Addiction Rehab
For patients who have private health insurance, drug rehab is generally affordable, because their insurance often covers all or part of their recovery. While the percentage of rehab facilities that accept private insurance in Arizona is significantly lower than in some other states, the majority (70.2 percent) do. In addition, 41.9 percent of facilities accept military insurance for military members and their families. Patients do need to check with the facility and their insurance company to determine the exact coverage their private insurance will provide.
Medicaid and Medicare for Addiction Rehab
Medicaid and Medicare recipients can also find affordable rehab services in Arizona. In fact, a greater percentage of facilities (72 percent) accept Medicaid than accept private insurance. About half (49.3 percent) of facilities accept Medicare. These income-based federal healthcare programs often cover rehab fully so that patients pay little to no out-of-pocket expenses for their treatment.
Uninsured Addiction Rehab
Sometimes, patients have no insurance and do not have time to get onto Medicaid, Medicare, or a private insurance plan before seeking treatment. In other cases, patients make too much for Medicaid and Medicare and too little to afford private insurance. Arizona makes some resources available for these individuals.
Sliding Scale Payments
Just over half (51.1) percent of facilities provide sliding scale charges for their services. This means that they apply a discount based upon a patient's income. The lower their income, the bigger the discount they receive in order to put rehab within financial reach of every patient.
Free drug rehab
In Arizona, free drug rehab for any patient is only available in 1 facility. However, 190 facilities (42.6 percent) provide treatment at no charge or minimal charge for patients in need, which means that they do not turn away patients because of an inability to pay. These centers are often nonprofits, use state funds, and/or leverage financial assistance programs to help needy patients receive the treatment they require.
Patients seeking drug rehab that is effective and affordable can speak to any addiction counselor at any of the state's treatment programs. These professionals can provide evaluations and guidance toward the programs that will work best for the patient.
Arizona Drug Treatment Overview
There are both pros and cons to Arizona's drug treatment programs. Here is an overview of some of the most striking:

More than 38 percent of Arizona's rehab facilities accept ITU funds, and 4 facilities are run by tribal governments. As a result, members of the state's 22 recognized tribes can more easily get rehab that is tailored to them and affordable for their budgets. their income or insurance status.

Arizona's drug rehab services offer assistance for patients throughout every stage of their recovery, from assessment to detox, rehab to transitional living, and even ancillary services, such as domestic violence support.
Arizona's drug rehab programs also serve a wide variety of demographics, including adolescents, pregnant and postpartum women, veterans, active duty military, and members of the LGBTQ+ community.
Arizona's drug rehab programs also provide services to a wider group of patients by offering treatment in multiple languages. 63.9 percent of these facilities provide support in a language other than English, while almost half of all facilities (48.4 percent) can communicate with patients in sign language.
Payment options are slightly limited in Arizona. For example, only 70.2 percent of facilities accept private insurance.

While patients can find facilities that provide childcare and beds for children accompanying their parents in rehab, these facilities are extremely limited, with only 2 percent of facilities providing beds and 3.1 percent providing childcare.
