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 have state insurance or no insurance, follow the steps below if you are wanting substance abuse treatment.

If you have private insurance, we can assist with your process directly (click the CONTACT page to get in touch with us).


For Washington state residents who do not 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 Apple Health (Medicaid) at

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 Medicare


Once you have enrolled in state insurance, the next step is setting up an assessment at an agency within the county you live. 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. To locate an agency in your county, please self-direct below.

If you need assistance getting an assessment, or need a ride to an assessment and you live in Snohomish County, please contact Robert Smiley with the Hand Up Project at 425-971-1774.

If you are pregnant, a registered tribal member, or have private insurance, we can assist with locating treatment for you directly. Please click our CONTACT page to get in touch with us.
