At the time of initial evaluation, the cost of our services will be explained to you. Some patients may be eligible for a sliding fee schedule. It is our expectation that assigned fees are paid at the time of services. We also will consider payment plans and bill you accordingly. Patients have the right to services regardless of the ability to pay.
Upon completion of a substance use disorder assessment, indicating a need for further services, a patient will be assigned to an individual clinician who will coordinate the patient’s delivery of care over time. The assessment helps to determine which program will provide the patient with the right amount and type of support. Outpatient treatment services generally include a combination of both individual and group therapy.
Outpatient treatment services are based on the most current research regarding effective treatment for substance use disorders and Prairie Ridge emphasizes the importance of providing evidence-based feedback informed programming for our patients. Outpatient services provide many different programming options including both day and evening therapy services.
