Resources and Next Steps

Insurance - Step-by-Step Guide

The path to treatment for those who have state medical insurance (Apple Health), or those who do not have medical insurance, is mostly self-service. If you're seeking substance-abuse treatment and have state insurance or no insurance, follow the steps below. If you have private insurance, we can assist with your process directly (click the CONTACT page to get in touch with us).


For WA state residents who don't have private insurance, the first step towards getting assistance with substance abuse or mental health is to apply for state medical insurance.

Apply for Washington State Apple Health (Medicaid)

When you’re ready to apply, you’ll need the following:

Your household monthly income • The Social Security numbers and dates of birth for each member of your household. • Your immigration information, if that applies to you.

If you need assistance, please call WithinReach at: 1-800-322-2588.

If you live in another state and are wanting to enroll in your state insurance program, please visit the Medicare website for more information.  


Once you have enrolled in state insurance, the next step is setting up an assessment at an agency in your county (see list of Detox and Assessment Centers below). Once you complete the assessment, the agency you go through will be working with treatment facilities to secure treatment for you. There may be other steps, so be sure to advocate for yourself and ask what all is required of you by that agency. 

If you need assistance getting an assessment, or need a ride to an assessment, detox or Department of Social and Health Services (DSHS), please contact us at: 206-422-0021. If you have private insurance, we can assist with locating treatment for you directly. CONTACT us!
