Coming to residential treatment is an investment for the person and their family. To help with the costs of coming to treatment we offer various types of financial assistance: 1) we work with insurance companies to help maximize reimbursement for the cost of care; 2) we have a scholarship program and financial aid for those who qualify based on need; 3) we are supported by various donors to help make coming to treatment possible; and 4) we provide access to possible loans to help provide assistance.

This means Pavillon exists for the purpose of achieving its organizational mission: “To bring hope, healing and lasting recovery to individuals and families who suffer from alcoholism, drug addictions and related disorders”.
