What if I don't have the money to pay?

  • Substance Abuse Services offers discounted treatment for people who cannot afford services in cases where the yearly family income is between 0 percent and 300 percent of the federal poverty level.
  • If you need treatment but don't feel that you can afford it, a financial representative at Central intake will be glad to work with you. Call (209)468-9600 to speak with a financial counselor. First, it will be determined if you qualify for Medi-Cal insurance or other third party payments. If not, you may be eligible for financial assistance on a sliding fee scale that's based on income.
