How do I Choose the Best Rehab in Texas?
The best rehab in Texas for you depends on your personal needs and medical necessities. Your rehab decision can affect not only the cost of your treatment but also your overall rehabilitation experience in Texas.
Alcohol and drug rehab centers in Texas may differ in their particular approach to drug addiction treatment and the specific populations that they treat. However, before attending a rehabilitation center in Texas, you may want to check whether the rehab has certain licensing and accreditations that affirm its quality of service, such as the Joint Commission’s accreditation and Department of Healthcare licensing.
You may also wish to consider the following when choosing a drug or alcohol rehab center in Texas:
- The length of the program. Would you like short-term treatment or long-term rehab? If you’re looking for a long-term residential facility, certain centers may be better for you than others.
- The methods of payment that the addiction treatment program accepts. While some rehabs accept private health insurance or state-funded health plans, others may only accept private payments, and vice-versa.
- Your desired (or needed) levels of care. Not every treatment center offers every level of addiction treatment care (ranging from medically assisted detox to outpatient treatment). Before choosing your treatment center, be sure that the levels of care fit your necessities and expectations.
- The program’s targeted population. Sometimes, rehab centers offer specialized tracks and services for specific populations of people, such as Veterans and those with co-occurring disorders. Others may offer specialized programs for members of the LGBTQ+ community and and denomination-based programs such as Christian drug rehabs.
How Much Does it Cost to go to Rehab in Texas?
The cost of rehab in Texas depends heavily upon the provider in question, the patient’s insurance coverage or payment method, and the level of care that person requires. More than 60% of alcohol and drug treatment facilities in Texas accept private insurance, more than half accept Medicaid, and roughly 90% accept cash and self-payment.2
There are also free and affordable rehab centers in Texas that offer sliding scale payments for low-income patients. State-funded rehab in Texas, for example, is a popular low-cost option for people who do not have private health insurance benefits and cannot afford to pay out-of-pocket for their treatment. Payment plans are also available to make rehab more readily affordable.
The best way to determine exactly how much your treatment will cost is to verify your insurance. Contact American Addiction Centers at to discuss treatment, insurance, and all other forms of payment options.
Is Rehab in Texas Covered by Insurance?
Some rehabs in Texas accept government-funded insurance plans such as Medicaid, Tricare, or work in tandem another similar healthcare organization.
AAC’s rehab center in Texas, Greenhouse Treatment Center, accepts most large health insurance plans. However, the extent to which a person’s treatment is covered by their insurance will depend on their medical necessity, exact plan benefits, and a variety of other factors.
At other drug and alcohol rehabs in Texas, insurance coverage will also depend on the provider and plan. In some cases, a person’s insurance will fully cover the cost of rehabilitation for drug and alcohol misuse. In other cases. insurance may only partially cover treatment and types of care, or only cover care for a certain predetermined length of time.
Texas State-Funded Rehab Options
