Using Insurance

Many worry when they first consider a California drug rehab that the costs will be too much for them or their family to handle.

Obviously, an overnight stay anywhere for 30 days is going to be costly… consider how much your rent and bills are for a month even without multiple daily therapeutic treatments, medical facilities, psychologists, therapists, acupuncturists, masseuses and other specialists. So the question is, will your insurance cover your California drug rehab experience?

Health Insurance

If you have health insurance, check the provisions or ask your insurance agent whether or not drug rehab is covered.Because alcohol and drug addictions are classified as a medical disease,[i] their treatment is usually deemed medically necessary by most insurance companies. However, the sticking point is exactly what treatments will be covered while you are in drug rehab, how long of a stay will be covered and whether or not they will pay for outpatient only.Also, it is necessary to consider that if they do cover inpatient drug rehab, will they then cover aftercare services should it be determined that you need further treatment. Since this was likely not an expense you expected when you purchased your insurance, you will need to double check the details to find out what to expect when you file your claim.

Employer Programs

Employers have a vested interest in helping their employees get well when they are stricken with alcohol and drug addiction.

To put it in the most base terms, it is far less expensive for your employer to help you get well and get back to doing the job you’ve been trained for—and that you know inside and out—than it is for them to go through the process of finding someone to replace you and then hiring that person.[ii] This can be a touchy subject because many who have managed to maintain their position at work despite their drug addiction don’t want anyone to know that they need treatment for fear of ruining their future opportunities or damaging their reputation.

Paying for Treatment

Since it’s clear that choosing not to embark on drug addiction treatment when it is clear that you need it is not only financially irresponsible but unacceptable in terms of your health, the safety of those around you, your family, your coworkers and friendships, how will you cover this bill that heaves a large upfront cost with long-term pay-off? You must remember that choosing to pay for treatment now is always the better financial decision long term. The cost of addiction—financially as well as relationally, professionally and personally—is much higher than the cost of treatment.

After loss of work, relationships, security and a promising future, it makes most sense to go ahead with treatment now to preserve your life to come.

Dear Friends,

On November 10, 2018, the Woolsey Fire destroyed The Canyon at Peace Park’s treatment facility. At this time, The Canyon at Peace Park is not accepting patients for any services. We arranged for the safe and seamless discharge or transition of all patients when we were forced to evacuate due to the fire.

For over 12 years, The Canyon at Peace Park has been privileged to provide integrated treatment for addiction and co-occurring disorders to patients across the nation. Our main focus has always been on our patients and their success. We have served hundreds of patients and their families, providing exclusive treatment and services for a wide range of behavioral health and addiction issues.

Our trained, compassionate staff has been committed to delivering quality patient care with dignity and respect, with the goal of helping our patients return to their communities as healthier individuals. We are extremely proud of the sacrifices of those who worked every day, often under challenging circumstances, to positively impact our patients’ lives.

We thank the physicians and staff for their expertise and dedication in providing high quality, compassionate treatment and care to the patients we have served.

We look forward to carrying on The Canyon at Peace Park’s legacy through our outpatient locations in Santa Monica and Encino. Foundations Recovery Network also has other residential and outpatient facilities around the country offering the same high quality of service you’ve come to expect from us.
