How much do SUDT Programs cost?
SUDT has a number of programs. Some are funded by grants, and are free to participants, however, where ever possible, SUDT uses CMSP and Medi-Cal to help fund treatment, since all services aren't covered with grant funds. No one with CMSP or Medi-Cal is required to pay for treatment services at SUDT. Some programs are fee-based, and individuals without CMSP or Medi-Cal are asked to pay for those programs. We use an approved sliding scale for those programs, based on the individual's ability to pay.. SUDT's Diversion Education Program for adults is not a treatment program and has a flat fee.
