Before you can beat drug or alcohol addiction, it is important to understand the causes. Each person is different in how they succumb to drug abuse or addiction. 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.
Treatment of the Sub-Principal Causes of Addiction
People use substances of abuse to obtain quick highs, relieve stress, and to cope with other medical conditions. However, alcohol and other drugs can exacerbate co-occurring mental disorders. We teach healthy methods to cope with negative emotions, and treat all the underlying causes.
It is important to have a personalized approach when seeking treatment for addiction to alcohol or drugs. It should be tailored to you. We will work with you to design a personal treatment plan. This could include individual therapy, counseling and group therapy.

We will help you navigate your recovery, and connect you to support groups. Support options are available to anyone, whether you're in treatment or supporting someone you love.
Because of the perceived high prices of addiction treatment, only a very small portion of those who need it pursue treatment. However, rehab costs are small in comparison to the health and social risks of avoiding treatment. These consequences can be prevented by getting treatment now.
Millions of Americans are living with addiction every day. A 2016 U.S. surgeon general report estimated that nearly 21 million Americans have a substance abuse disorder. Only 10 percent receive treatment for substance abuse.
Why? One reason may be due to the high costs. The cost of treatment was a major factor in the fact that almost 40% of Americans with substance use disorders didn't get to rehab between 2011-2014. They either couldn't afford it, or they didn’t have insurance.
However, the cost of treatment is much less than that of addiction. Insurance can reduce the cost of rehab, which many people don't know. New laws mandate that insurance companies cover addiction and mental healthcare treatment.
What is the Cost of Rehab?
Prices for treatment at addiction centers in the United States vary by level. People suffering from severe substance use disorders may need more intensive and extended treatment. In general, intensive care is more costly than standard treatment.
Detox is the process to eliminate drugs from your body and avoid withdrawal. 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.
The cost of basic residential treatment which includes assessments and monitoring around-the-clock is typically between $2,000-$20,000,000. Long-term residential care that lasts 60 to 90 days may be twice as expensive.
Luxury rehab centers can charge up to $25,000 per 30 days. Private treatment centers usually charge less.
Outpatient care allows people to stay at home while receiving treatment. Patients can learn to live at home and avoid the need for a hospital by attending several appointments. 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
Outpatient intensive care is a more extensive form of outpatient treatment. It usually includes multiple appointments per week and lasts about three hours each day. This treatment can be between $3,000 and $10,000 over 30 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 costs approximately $350-$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.

Programs that are cost-free
Some facilities offer payment assistance, or sliding-fee scales. Treatment centers can be costly. Other facilities offer programs for free, funded by state taxes. These state-sponsored programs are often subject to long waitlists.
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. There are also free treatment options offered by faith-based groups.
