This is typically viable via its inclusion in mental health therapy services, which are often covered by insurers. A list of insurance providers that may cover gambling addiction through Kindbridge Behavioral Health can be found here.
Individual Cost of Gambling Rehab
Before you can begin your sessions, there is an initial assessment. This assessment will determine whether your gambling problem is mild, moderate, severe, or correlated to some other underlying behavioral health concern. The $195 assessment can actually help you save money, as misdiagnosis can cost a patient much more in the wrong form of therapy. For instance, you may find that your problem can effectively be addressed through early intervention methods. Once the assessment has been completed, your recovery can begin, at a very affordable investment of just $165 per session. Learn more about individual gambling therapy sessions.
