Taking the First Step Towards a Better Life

The process begins with BRH learning about the specific needs of each client that will soon begin their path to recovery. During this first step of admissions, we will ask some confidential questions about your substance use in order to make a preliminary determination of the LEVEL OF CARE.

We will ask some confidential questions regarding your FINANCIAL ABILITY. Part of this process will be to provide your insurance information so we can determine the contribution, if any, that your insurance company will make for treatment. Eventually, we will determine whether BRH is the right solution for you while considering both your required level of care and the financial ability to attend. If it is agreed that you are unable to attend recovery services here at BRH, we will continue to work with you in order to place you in a program that is appropriate.

Admission is a Process

If you need immediate help BRH offers detoxification services, which can be obtained quickly. Occasionally, there may be a delay even in the face of need when financial concerns including pre-approvals from insurance companies are involved or beds become available. We will do everything possible to find placement in a program, even if it is not at BRH, to best serve the needs of the client.

Often delay is because of the client's readiness to start this recovery process. A person often begins contemplating the need to begin recovery and will have to make a commitment before attending BRH.

The commitment is:
    To recover from addiction.
    To take time from family, jobs, and responsibilities to focus on the program                  and process of recovery.

Are YOU serious about beginning the path of recovery?
Treatment is not an easy path. It is an investment in you as a person. It is an investment of time and resources. There is a financial cost to recover. Our team at BRH is committed to working with you to plan for the financial responsibility of attending our program. This often includes verifying insurance benefits. We accept most major insurance companies. It is important to know up front what coverage your insurance offers and what your financial responsibility will be.

BRH offers Financial Support Services - Customized Options to fit your Budget or Insurance.

We accept many insurance as payment options for our Recovery Services. Nevertheless, almost every insurance company requires a co-payment or deductible. BRH requires those costs be planned for at admission. We have a financial responsibility manager that will help you gather resources. This means helping you with the tools to secure funds from those persons in your life who will support you on your road to recovery. In some cases, we can provide assistance in obtaining medical loans. In other cases, we may offer short-term payment plans. The consultation is free.

No Insurance - No Problem - We Have Solutions

For those without insurance, you can either afford treatment with financial planning or you will need to seek publicly funded treatment at another facility. We will help you and your family plan for the costs associated with treatment.
