What is self-pay?
Patients are responsible to bring payment, in full, at the time of service. Payments are accepted by Cash, Visa, MasterCard, or Discover only. If you have a Health Savings Account card, you are welcome to use that for payment. Please ask for an invoice after each visit for your records or to submit a claim to your insurance provider for some portion of reimbursement.
What if I have insurance?
Unfortunately, we do not accept insurance at this time. If you have insurance, we recommend that you find out what percentage of “mental health” coverage you have, so you know if and how much of a reimbursement you will receive after submitting the invoice to your insurance company.

Outpatient detox is detox done at home over a few days, it is medicated base. Outpatients can continue to function relatively normal and maintain employment as well as family and social relationships. Compared with inpatients, those patients in outpatient treatment retain greater freedom, continue to work and maintain day-to-day activities with fewer disruptions, Outpatient drug rehab can be a good standalone option for someone with a mild addiction, or it can be part of a long-term treatment program.
