Beginning Addiction Recovery
Change is about to begin— from the troublesome to the addictive and everything in between. We will help you find the answers you seek, the answers you deserve, and the understanding what changes need to be made to heal your life.
We recognize choosing a treatment program for yourself or a loved one is not an easy task. Chances are, you are full of fear and confusion of what is the best treatment option. For many, Insurance is an important detail which factors into the decision to enter a treatment program.
Oftentimes there is confusion around insurance.
These are all questions you might have when making a decision for yourself or for a loved one’s treatment.
It is our job to make this process as seamless as possible. We will work with your insurance company to gather coverage information and let you know exactly what your options are and how your insurance coverage will work at Breathe. Chances are, your insurance will pay for a significant portion of clinical services.
Breathe Life Healing Centers accepts all insurances for clinical services. We will also work with most insurance companies on additional services we offer. Prior to admission, we will conduct an assessment and a quote of your insurance benefits. Breathe will calculate your copay and direct bill your insurance for the clinical services provided.
In addition to our Life Healing Centers, we also offer outpatient programs to those who live near our clinic. Clients take part in our full six-day a week clinical program while having the flexibility of living at home or another recovery environment. Breathe outpatient services are covered by most insurances and we work with all major insurance providers.
If you have any questions about the insurance or admissions process, please feel free to contact us 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
