Treatment can be classified into three categories:
The first consideration is your method of paying for treatment. The three most common ways are:
Other options available to some are through community based organizations such as churches and gender specific non-profit organizations. Unfortunately today many insurance plans are very limited to what they are able to cover. The “inpatient” or “residential” types may be covered but the length of stay is not as long as in the past.
Another thing to be aware of is that the term “residential” can describe multiple types of treatment and be funded or not based on the services offered. Below is a list of residential options grouped by services offered and funding available.
The term “inpatient” typically refers to overnight multiple day stays. There are fewer and fewer of these. More common today is what is referred to as “short term stabilization”. The concept is very much like what is happening in the medical world. For example, giving birth to a child requires a much shorter stay in the hospital. The idea is that help is available afterwards.
The term outpatient refers to the treatment of addiction by way of daily, weekly or monthly appointments with a counselor. This category can be in both the treatment of addiction and recovery supports after treatment Below is a list of providers of these as well as payment options.

Other examples are Recovery community organizations. These are non-profit organizations led by people in Recovery. Services provided usually include Recovery coaching, Recovery events and Resource connections. Recovery community organizations help create all types of support for individuals and families in recovery throughout the community. Cost of services vary. Another form of community based supports are faith based, usually found within churches that understand and support addiction recovery. Many forms of community based are found out side of what some think of “the recovery world”. If we think in terms of wellness as a whole person, holistic or global health, treating an addiction can be done supported in many ways. Some examples are yoga, art, music, pets, and gardening.
