What services are offered?
DCCCA offers a full continuum of addiction treatment programs including individual and group outpatient counseling, intensive outpatient services that meet nine hours weekly, short term residential treatment and non-medical detoxification services. DCCCA’s women’s residential programs also offer licensed childcare for mothers who bring their children to treatment with them. Our team coordinates with community providers for additional services that support a person’s treatment.
How do I know what type of treatment I need?
Each person’s treatment process begins with a comprehensive review of his or her strengths and needs. This assessment looks at current and prior substance use, physical and mental health needs, education, employment and family support, criminal justice involvement, and other involved community support systems. Together with the counselor, individuals will identify the type of treatment that best meets their assessed need. The assessment process is also required by most payers to determine what type of treatment can be reimbursed.
How much does it cost?
Each individual’s financial responsibility is based on the assessed level of treatment needed and available insurance coverage. DCCCA staff will help identify specific costs and payment sources. A sliding fee scale, based on an individual’s income, is used for people who pay out of pocket for their services.
Will my insurance cover my treatment?
Treatment costs are covered by most insurance companies and Medicaid. DCCCA staff will verify insurance benefits during the first appointment and provide information about the insurance companies required co-payments and deductible. DCCCA will also help refer to an alternative treatment provider if an insurance company does not reimburse for DCCCA services.
I don’t have insurance or Medicaid. Can I still attend treatment?
DCCCA receives federal and state dollars that cover treatment costs for certain Kansans who do not have insurance or Medicaid. Eligible individuals must prove they are Kansas residents and have an income at 200% or below the federal poverty level. DCCCA staff will help identify those income limits and verification documents.
Is there a waiting list?
Outpatient services typically do not have waiting lists. DCCCA’s residential programs, however, may have a waiting list based on scheduled admissions and available capacity. The Intake Coordinator at each residential program can provide the latest information about waiting lists. Interim services, including participation in outpatient services, may be offered while an individual waits for residential admission.
What do I need to bring with me to my first appointment?
Please bring the following documents to your first appointment:
- Driver’s license or Kansas ID card
