The Cost of Rehab

Finding the right rehab can be a stressful time, especially when it comes to finances. While most insurance companies cover some or all of the costs of treatment, many people are either underinsured or not insured at all. Rehab is expensive, but addiction is more costly. Paying for not only the cost of the substance, but also loss of productivity, responsibility, and eventually, your life. When all these things are taken into consideration, it is important to remember that your health is your priority, and while rehab is expensive, it is also life-saving. And your life is priceless.

If you do not have insurance, or your insurance will not cover addiction treatment, ask about financing for your stay at rehab. Many facilities work with clients to make sure their stay is covered. While the idea of financing your health can be stressful, think of it instead as an investment into your future. Many facilities also offer private pay as an option. Getting financial support from family might be a way to get treatment.  

Continuum of Care

The continuum of care means that all three levels of care are provided at a treatment facility. This means that detox, residential, and outpatient treatment are all potentially part of an individualized care plan for each client. 

  • Detoxification or detox treatment is the process of cleansing one’s body of harmful substances. For individuals dependent on alcohol or drugs, this cleansing may be difficult without proper medical help.
  • Residential treatment programs are the second phase of addiction treatment. Once the toxic substances have been removed from one’s body after a detox program, residential treatment is started. Here, the individuals should be under 24/7 care and supervised by a skilled clinical team member or doctor. You might also have access to a professional chef who prepares brain-healthy food. This kind of treatment can provide a priceless foundation for your recovery.
  • Intensive Outpatient Programs help clients maintain sobriety after the successful completion of detox or primary care. Overcoming addiction is a very challenging phase of one’s life and becomes even more so when clients return to their lives and responsibilities. 

The cost of treatment varies widely from facility to facility, and from person to person, based on their needs. Individualized programs are an important factor because you know you will be getting the full spectrum of care, setting you up for a successful recovery.
