Treatment Approaches in Michigan
Lasting recovery often occurs within a supportive community and a structured routine. 12-step programs provide both, with almost 90 years of implementation and success behind them. These programs, the most famous of which is Alcoholics Anonymous, provide regular meetings with other 12-step participants. They also provide a series of steps that participants can follow to structure their recovery. Some of the most famous of these steps are acknowledging a higher power, making amends, and recognizing the powerlessness an addict has over their addiction. 12-step programs have been so successful that about 74 percent of drug rehab centers in the U.S. use them on at least an occasional basis.

Top Cities For Recovery:
Certain mental illnesses often accompany substance use disorder (SUD), and can even be its cause, as sufferers turn to addictive substances in order to manage the symptoms of their mental illness. Some of the most common mental illnesses that occur along with SUDs are the following:
- Bipolar disorder
- Borderline personality disorder
- Eating disorders
- Generalized anxiety disorder
- Obsessive-compulsive disorder
- Post-traumatic stress disorder
Dual diagnoses are common, with 17 million Americans suffering from them in 2020, according to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health. Patients require treatment that targets both of their co-occurring disorders in order to achieve full recovery, which is why 52.5 percent of Michigan drug rehab facilities offer these services.
Detox facilities offer patients a safe and medically supervised environment in which they can withdraw from the addictive substances in their bodies. This is an important first step in recovery, and using a detox facility helps patients to avoid the potentially dangerous effects of withdrawing alone. In Michigan, the majority of detox programs are available in residential rehab settings, but patients can also access detox through outpatient and hospital-based programs.
Short-Term Inpatient Rehab
Some patients, particularly those who struggle with complex addictions, benefit from living at the rehab facility and receiving intensive, round-the-clock therapy and support. These residential rehab programs are considered short-term when they last less than 30 days. In Michigan, 15.6 percent of addiction treatment centers offer short-term inpatient rehab.
Long-Term Residential Rehab
Inpatient rehab that lasts longer than 30 days is known as long-term residential rehab. In Michigan, this type of service is available at 14.8 percent of the state's facilities.
Rehab Costs In Michigan
Drug rehab can be expensive, with the costs of rehab potentially reaching tens of thousands of dollars. However, costs can vary widely in Michigan, depending upon factors such as the following:
- Type of program entered
- Medication received
- Services used
- Length of treatment
- And more
In addition, patients usually have multiple payment options available to them, even if they have a limited income or feel unable to pay for their treatment. Among the payment options Michigan facilities make available to patients are the following:
Private Health Insurance for Addiction Rehab
Private health insurance is not tied exclusively to benefits provided by a full-time employer. Instead, individuals can also access private health insurance through ACA or state-provided exchanges. As a result, millions of Americans have private insurance, and can use their plans to pay for addiction recovery treatment. Patients wishing to use their benefits should call their insurance company first to discuss the details of their coverage, including any copays and deductibles for which they will be responsible. They will also need to make sure that their preferred drug rehab center accepts their insurance plan. In Michigan, more than 82 percent of facilities take some form of private insurance as payment.
Medicaid and Medicare for Addiction Rehab
For individuals who meet certain low-income thresholds, the federal government provides healthcare coverage in the form of Medicare and Medicaid. For patients who seek drug rehab, Medicare and Medicaid often cover their recovery costs in full, as long as they utilize services from a program that accepts their healthcare plan. In Michigan, 61.9 percent of facilities accept Medicare, and 74.5 percent of facilities accept Medicaid.
Uninsured Addiction Rehab
For the 31.1 million people in the United States who are uninsured, addiction recovery is still possible within Michigan. The state's facilities offer the following options for financially needy patients:
Sliding Scale Payments
Sliding scale fees are fees that are adjusted based on a person's income. This means that someone who makes a lower income will pay less for the same services than someone who earns a higher income. 59.7 percent of drug rehab centers in Michigan offer their services on a sliding scale, make it easier for financially needy individuals to access the care they need.
Free drug rehab
In addition, a few (6) of Michigan's drug rehab centers offer free services to every patient, while 41.1 percent of facilities offer their services at no charge or minimal charge just for those patients who cannot otherwise pay for their treatment.
Cost should not be a barrier to anyone who wants treatment for an addiction. Addiction counselors at the state's drug rehab centers can provide evaluations and guidance to help patients find the support and treatment they both need and can afford.
