Where Are Rehabs in Washington Located?

There are numerous rehab centers in Washington state. However, these treatment centers tend to be clustered around the Seattle and Tacoma areas, with a few facilities in eastern Washington near Spokane and in southeastern Washington.2

In addition, you can look at out-of-state treatment options, many of which are just minutes away from the nearest city airport hub.

There may be benefits to seeking treatment away from home, including the:

  • Removal from toxic environmental triggers, such as the people, places, and things you associate with drug and alcohol use that might be tempting during the initial recovery.
  • Reinforcement of the idea of starting over alcohol- and drug-free.
  • Commitment—in terms of time and finances—required, making it harder to leave rehab early.

What is the Cost of Rehab in Washington?

Around 85% of the 457 Washington rehab centers accept private insurance plans. However, if you do not have insurance, many of the rehab facilities offer ways to pay, including self-payments and sliding-fee scales. There are several centers that provide free or minimal-cost rehab for those who cannot pay.3

Many factors influence the total cost of rehab, including the type of treatment—inpatient, outpatient, or medically managed detox, for instance—location, and amenities.

Does Insurance Cover the Cost of Rehab in Washington?

Insurance may cover at least part of the cost of treatment. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires private insurance companies to provide its members with some form of substance abuse treatment. This means that, for the most part, insurers cannot deny coverage for a substance use disorder. The specific coverage, however, depends on the benefits and the details of the health care plan.

Many health insurance plans will help cover the cost of out-of-state residential treatment programs, too. For example, Laguna Treatment Center accepts Kaiser Permanente, United Healthcare, and Blue Cross Blue Shield insurance, to name a few.

For those without insurance, 89% of the alcohol and drug rehab centers in Washington state accept self-payment and 56% accept sliding-scale fees, which means that the cost of treatment is based on income.

In addition, 40% of the treatment centers in the state offer low- or no-cost treatment for those who cannot afford to pay.3 Furthermore, nearly two-thirds of the facilities in Washington state take state-funded insurance and more than three-quarters of them accept Medicaid to pay for treatment.3

What Addictions Can be Treated in a Washington Rehab Center?

In addition, many people have co-occurring disorders, also known as dual diagnosis. When a person has a co-occurring disorder, they have a behavioral health disorder as well as a substance use disorder.5

Integrated treatment programs screen, assess, and provide services for substance use disorders and other mental health disorders, such as depression and PTSD. In fact, Laguna Treatment Center offers a co-occurring disorder treatment program.
