How to pay for Treatment


Treatment for IVF is only available in the private sector and it is expensive, whether you invest in one cycle or more. Releasing your superannuation savings is available to you under the mental health provisions within the Compassionate Release of Super Program.

Addiction Treatment

By the time you’ve arrived at the decision to start rehab, most addicts do not have sufficient cash to self-fund the cost of private treatment, and families are reluctant to provide money after years of failed attempts to stop drugs or drinking. Your superannuation savings can be used to assist with these expenses.

Paying for Treatment

The ATO will release your superannuation on compassionate grounds if you meet the eligibility requirements of the compassionate ground you’re applying for and have not paid for the expense – they can only approve the compassionate release of superannuation to help you with unpaid expenses.

You will need to provide all required supporting evidence, including invoices or quotes for treatment.

If you cannot afford to pay the expenses without accessing your super and you are a citizen or permanent resident of Australia or New Zealand you should qualify.
If you have already paid the expense using a loan, a credit card or money borrowed from family or friends, you do not meet the eligibility requirements..

Keith* started drinking alcohol at an early age.

At 13 or 14, he started smoking dope which he says went hand-in-hand with the surfing culture on Sydney’s northern beaches in the 1990s.

As he got older, he began to experiment with ecstasy, speed and LSD but says at that stage, it was never an issue – he was always able to perform academically, on the sports field and in the surf.

When he was 18 and started working, drinking and drug-taking became more regular and while he often saw his family and friends, over time Keith’s life began to spiral out of control.

Keith, of Manly, was working in the media earning great money and with that high-flying lifestyle came a “work hard, play hard” mentality that saw him abusing alcohol and cocaine as part of his fast-paced existence – which eventually, all came crashing down.

“Financially, I lost everything,” he says.

“I feel lucky to have been able to enter a drug rehab program using my superannuation, and finally get clean.”

Access Super for Rehab

Any effective alcohol rehab or drug rehab center must also focus on the mental health aspects of the disease – what’s referred to as dual diagnosis. Addiction to anything, particularly chronic addiction — whether it be drugs, alcohol, gambling, etc. — almost inevitably has its roots in a mental health issue, such as trauma, depression or anxiety. That’s why the leading treatment centres in the world, including those in the West, have programmes that address both the addiction itself and mental health.

Why do we turn to alcohol or drugs?

The reasons cannot be understood without looking into the individual’s journey.  A drug addict gives birth to a child who is addicted from birth is just one scenario.

Many professionals use drugs recreationally, such as coke, ice and alcohol.  Those in professions of high stress, unwind at the end of the shift or day with a few.

Alcohol and  drugs are accepted as a part of our culture and society.   However, when alcohol and drugs are driving behaviours then it may be time to see a professional.
