Before you can beat drug or alcohol addiction, it is important to understand the causes. There are many factors that lead people to abuse drugs and become addicted. We discuss how drugs can affect your body, what causes people to turn to them, and how you can recover from alcoholism or other substance abuse disorders.
The Underlying Causes of Addiction
People use substances of abuse to obtain quick highs, relieve stress, and to cope with other medical conditions. Alcohol and other drugs can worsen symptoms of co-occurring disorders. We teach healthy ways of coping with unhappiness and address all underlying causes of addiction.
You need to be able to relate to the person receiving treatment for alcoholism and drug abuse. It should be tailored to you. We work with each client to create a customized treatment plan. It may include counseling, therapy in groups, or medication-assisted options.

We provide safe environments to help you rid yourself of alcohol or other drugs. However, detox is only the beginning. To help you succeed, we teach stress-relief techniques, healthy coping strategies and other skills.
Supporting long-term recovery
Recovery is a long-term process. Being surrounded with support makes it easier. You can expect to be able to transition smoothly from treatment to recovery and introduce you into support groups. There are support options available, regardless of whether you are in recovery or caring for a loved one.
A small percentage of addicts seek treatment, despite the perceived high costs. However, rehab costs are small in comparison to the health and social risks of avoiding treatment. These negative consequences can be avoided by seeking help as soon as possible.
Millions of Americans are living with addiction every day. According to a U.S. surgeon General report, almost 21 million Americans suffer from a substance abuse disorder. Only 10% of these people receive treatment for substance abuse.
Why? The reason is partly due to the high cost of treatment. Nearly 40% of Americans who had a substance abuse disorder and needed treatment in 2014 didn't attend rehab because they couldn't afford it or did not have insurance.
The cost of treatment can be far lower than the cost associated with addiction. Insurance can reduce the cost of rehab, which many people don't know. New laws require that insurance companies cover treatment for mental illness and addiction.
How Much Does Rehab Cost?
Each level of treatment in addiction centers across the country is different. Patients with more severe substance abuse disorders will likely require intensive and prolonged treatment. Standard treatment is generally more expensive than intensive care.
Detoxification refers to the removal of drugs from the body. Based on data from drug treatment facilities in the United States, the average cost for a 30-day detox program is $250 to $800 per person.
Basic residential treatment costs between $2,000 - $20,000. It often involves assessments and round-the-clock supervision. Long-term residential therapy, which can last between 60 to 90 minutes, may be twice the cost.
For 30 days, some luxury rehab facilities can charge as much as $25,000 Most private treatment centers charge much less.
Outpatient care allows patients the freedom to live at their own homes while they receive treatment. Through a series or appointments, patients can become drug-free and live in their own homes. Outpatient treatment can be as low as $5,000 for a 3-month program. Outpatient treatment may be available at some facilities for up to $10,000.
Intensive Outpatient Rehab
Intensive outpatient care is a more thorough form of outpatient healthcare. It generally involves multiple appointments per semaine that last approximately three hours each. This type of care costs anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 for 30 consecutive days.
Partial Hospitalization Programs
Partial hospitalization is for patients who are unable to return home each night and need intensive treatment during the days. PHP is generally between $350 to $450 per day.
Medication-Assisted Opioid Treatment
The U.S. Department of Defense published a report in 2016 that estimated the cost of different opioid treatment programs.

Even though treatment centers are expensive, many facilities offer payment assistance or sliding fees scales. Some facilities offer programs at no cost, which are paid for by state taxes. These programs sponsored by the state often have long waiting lists.
Individuals in recovery have another option: Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous are two options. These 12-step programs, which have been in existence for over six decades, have helped millions of people maintain or achieve sobriety by holding regular meetings. Many faith-based organizations also offer free treatment options.
