Fees and Scholarships:


We expect that each resident or his or her, parents or guardian or spouse will pay our standard program fee of $15,500 per month for each of the first two months of residency at our main campus, where our residents begin their recovery experience. We are lower in cost than comparable programs because our Founders have been so successful in capitalizing our program through philanthropy. Families with sufficient resources are asked to continue paying the monthly program fee of $15,500, until the resident moves to our lower priced Community Program.

CooperRiis Farm CampusThose who are unable to sustain payment of the standard program fee are encouraged to seek a reduction by applying for a scholarship that may begin with the third month of residency. We are most often able to reduce our fees to meet the family's financial circumstances, especially for those residents who have shown a strong commitment to their recovery. Families who cannot afford full payment of the first two months may also qualify to receive a no-interest, 8-month loan from CooperRiis for up to 50% of the fee, or up to $7,750 for each of the first two months.

Scholarships may be allowed for up to 24 months; 6 months at CooperRiis and 6 months at each of the three Community Program levels. About half of our families seek and receive a scholarship, the total of which accumulates to almost $3 million a year. The other half of our families has the means to cover our standard program fee and expresses satisfaction with the value of the services provided.

Our standard program fee is seldom covered by medical insurance. We do encourage you, however, to submit your paid invoices for retroactive billing to your insurance company. We are unable to directly invoice your insurance company.

Admissions decisions are "need blind" and based simply on whether or not we believe we can be of benefit to the applicant.
