Substance abuse treatment is either paid for privately (cash) or through pre-existing, personal insurance plans. If neither the Respondent nor the Client has the ability to pay for treatment, the only treatment alternative is typically the use of a county or government funded indigent program. The Client must recognize that the use of any treatment program that is not paid for privately or through insurance may result in a delay of the Marchman Act process. County or government funded treatment programs typically have limited bed availability and treatment capacity, which may result in the Respondent being placed on a waiting list for a bed for detox or residential treatment. ARLS will enforce compliance by the Respondent of the rules and regulations of the government run program; including sobriety, while waiting for an available bed. However, the client must recognize that any delay in providing immediate treatment influences the overall chance for immediate success. Should the Client have the ability to pay for treatment privately (cash) or utilize insurance, ARLS will present this alternative treatment option to the Respondent as an alternative to the potential delays of an indigent based treatment program.
