Making the Arrangements

Cost of Treatment at Alta Mira Recovery

Alta Mira Recovery Program has made every effort to keep our treatment programs affordable and, our fees are directly related to expenses incurred while providing services. Our rates are all-inclusive unless otherwise noted. You will be notified in advance if any service is recommended that will require additional payment, and you will have the option to decline that service. The price of our treatment programs vary depending on the program, admitting diagnosis, level of care, withdrawal symptoms, and accommodations. We require full payment at time of admission. If this poses a financial hardship at time of admission please discuss this with the business office.

Please call us at 866-922-1350 to obtain pricing information.


While we do not accept insurance in lieu of payment for admission to treatment, in some cases insurance companies will reimburse at a rate consistent with their “reasonable and customary” charges for “out of network” residential substance abuse treatment. It is the client’s responsibility to negotiate with his or her insurance company for reimbursement.

When you Arrive

take-tour-lpWe work hard to make the admissions process at Alta Mira straightforward and safe. New clients may be admitted anytime during the day or night. If detox is required, new clients will be seen by our medical doctor within a few hours of admission to complete a physical exam and determine the appropriate detoxification protocol. All clients will see our independent physician or our Detox Team within 24 hours for a physical exam and our detox specialist staff upon admission to record vital signs and evaluate current medications.
