The majority of the time, insurance covers almost all of the rehabilitation cost. We also negotiate on behalf of the families to get you the lowest rate possible. Often times, we are able to negotiate the external costs to almost nothing. If the family is in financial hardship and needs assistance we are able to apply for scholarship funds internally and assist with payments.
How is Sober Sevices paid for the services?
We are a company that runs off of donations and private funding. Our founder struggled much like the clients we now help. Being from a wealthy family in Canada, when it came time for the family to look for treatment and not having a private PPO insurance, there were few options that didn't cost the family an exorbitant amount. Our founder was placed in programs that were not necessarily a good fit for him and cost upwards of $40,000 for a 30 day program.
After multiple rehabilitation attempts in a cookie cutter program he saw the need to help clients develop a program suited to their condition as opposed to attempting to fit everyone into the same mold. After achieving long term sobriety, he now donates much of his time and funds to assist other families going through the struggle he and his family faced.
