Alcohol and Drug Abuse Services


Debra Mierop
Director of Alcohol and Drug Abuse





The Delaware County Alcohol & Drug Abuse Services prides itself on offering high quality services that are valuable to the community. We maintain ongoing efforts to ensure that our services are effective and provide the greatest possible value to our consumers. Collecting fees for the services you receive is one of the most important factors in being able to continue to offer high quality services at an affordable cost. The costs of running our program are considerable and we are required by Section 41.25 of the NYS Mental Hygiene Law to seek out all sources of income for which we are eligible. As such, we require that you make an effort to pay your bill either through insurance, personal funds or through a combination of the two. When necessary, we will make every effort to review your financial situation to arrange a fee that is fair, based upon your income and ability to pay. One of our office staff or your therapist can discuss this with you.

Since there are several ways that your fee can be paid, the following is intended to be a guide to help you meet your obligation to pay for your service here:

  1. PRIVATE MEDICAL INSURANCE provided through employment and offers coverage for substance abuse services in many cases. Contact your insurance for the terms and limitations of the substance abuse portion. If your insurance payment does not cover the entire fee, you will be responsible for the uncovered portion.

  2. MANAGED CARE/HMO INSURANCE PLANS will cover a specified amount of your visit depending on the plan that you have. You are responsible for your co-payment (if any is required) at the time of your visit. It is our suggestion that you call the 800# on your card to verify the co-pay. You must have a referral. Procedures for obtaining a referral vary from plan to plan, so you will need to check the requirements for obtaining a referral for your plan when calling the 800# to confirm co-pays.

  3. MEDICAID will cover the costs of our services. Please have a valid Medicaid card when you come for services. If you are applying for benefits, please have a temporary card or document certifying that you have applied for benefits. You must bring your card with you on every visit to confirm your coverage.

  4. MEDICARE  -  We do not participate in Medicare.

  5. SELF PAY occurs in cases where there is no insurance.  You must bring with you the following proof of income: paystubs for the past 2 months or a copy of last year’s tax return.  A fee based on your family size and income will be established from our sliding fee schedule.

PLEASE NOTE: Your bill for services must be PAID IN FULL before we will provide verification of successful completion of treatment. This includes but is not limited to DMV forms, verification of attendance to other doctors and agencies, copies of client records and any other information regarding treatment at our facility. Failure to make arrangements for payment and/or delinquent accounts may result in delay of service.
