Paying for Sober Living & Extended Care
We understand that paying for quality extended care and/or sober living is a significant investment. It is also an investment that you can’t afford NOT to make.
How much does Extended Care and Sober Living at Westport House cost?
Sober living and extended care have two cost components: residential and clinical services. Residential costs are calculated on a four-week cycle and reflect the services provided by the level of care. These costs are usually not covered by health insurance. Costs for clinical treatment services offered at our nearby outpatient center are billed to the resident’s insurance company. For residents without behavioral health insurance coverage, we offer discounted out-of-pocket rates for clinical treatment services.
While these variables make it difficult to determine precisely how much to budget on a monthly basis, here are some basic guidelines for minimum out-of-pocket costs:
Sober Living: $4,495/month
Extended Care: $8,950/month
*The above monthly out-of-pocket costs do not factor in any partial scholarships or financing options for which you may be eligible.
Does insurance cover any part of sober living or extended care?
Yes. A primary component of the Westport House sober living or extended care experience includes clinical treatment services at our nearby licensed and accredited outpatient center. Although every insurance policy is different, insurance companies typically cover most of these services. This allows us to keep our residential costs lower than many other sober living or extended care programs.
Please note that we are in-network with Anthem Blue Cross and its affiliates. This means that other than a co-pay, you will pay very little out-of-pocket for treatment. We are in the process of contracting with several other popular insurance companies. Please contact admissions for an updated list of in-network insurance carriers and help understanding what your policy does and does not cover.
