Making the choice to enter a residential mental health facility for treatment for depression, anxiety, PTSD, OCD or trauma is truly an accomplishment in and of itself. For anyone who has struggled with any of these issues for a long time, it can be difficult to acknowledge that the tools he or she has been using to try to cope up until this point simply aren’t working, and perhaps residential mental health treatment with intensive professional help is needed – usually at a significant financial cost.
Bridges to Recovery provides the highest level of care in a luxurious residential setting and is therefore priced higher than some other residential treatment facilities. The cost of our premier program reflects the intense licensed treatment program and the expertise of our clinical team.
Under “Why Our Program” we explain in detail how we differentiate ourselves from other residential mental health programs, however the cost of our program will be determined by the personalized needs and services that your care will require. You should expect the cost of our licensed 4 week program to start around $45.000 but please keep in mind that this can be subject to change depending on availability and your specific treatment plan.
Bridges to Recovery is a private-pay facility, meaning that payment is required up front. Some clients may qualify for a scholarship, which can help offset the cost. This option is best discussed with the Admission Director. Additionally, certain insurance plans may have options that will contribute to the cost.
The admissions staff truly wants to facilitate you getting the help you need, and are willing to work with you to find a method that works for everybody. Fortunately, these staff members are well versed in talking with insurance companies to procure such options for you. They understand insurance lingo, know the right questions to ask and the right people to speak with and are willing to do much of the legwork for you. This is a considerable blessing, during what is likely a difficult time for you.
Sometimes insurance companies can cover a part of your residential treatment, greatly reducing your bill. Other tricks are finding a way to pay the cash price up front, and then submitting the receipt to your insurance company for reimbursement. Families sometimes borrow from various family members and friends, churches or other organizations that have benevolence funds to pull together the payments needed. Some families even take out loans to cover the cost, or connect with Clark Behavioral Health Financing (www.clarkbhf.com) to finance their treatment at a residential treatment program.
We know that you cannot put a price on your wellbeing or the mental health of your relatives and that you are willing to go to great lengths to provide the best mental health treatment available. Bridges to Recovery provides a very exclusive residential treatment model that employs Ph.D.-level therapists, licensed by the Department of Mental Health and Department of Social Services, and offers an extremely high level of care, which accounts for the relatively high cost.
However, we do not recommend that you go above and beyond your financial means, so our Admissions department is happy to recommend wonderful facilities that offer mental health treatment at a more affordable price.
