Before you can conquer alcoholism or drug addiction, it's important to fully understand them. Every individual is affected by different factors that lead you to addiction or substance abuse. 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
To get a quick high, or to manage stress or other health issues, many people turn to drugs of abuse. Co-occurring mental illnesses can be exacerbated by alcohol and other substances. We teach healthy ways of coping with unhappiness and address all underlying causes of addiction.
A personal approach is required for rehab for drug and alcohol abuse. 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.
The Proven Treatment Methods
We offer safe environments designed for you to detoxify your body from alcohol and other substances. Detoxification is not the end of treatment. 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. Support is key to making recovery easier. Support groups and guidance are key to your success in drug rehab. There are support options available, regardless of whether you are in recovery or caring for a loved one.
Because of the perceived high prices of addiction treatment, only a very small portion of those who need it pursue treatment. But the cost of rehab is negligible compared with the potential social and health consequences of not getting treatment. These can be prevented by seeking treatment immediately.
Millions of Americans are living with addiction every day. A U.S. surgeon général report in 2016 estimated that close to 21 million Americans suffer from substance abuse disorders. Only 10% of these people receive treatment for substance abuse.
Why? Costs are a major reason. A staggering 40% of Americans with a substance misuse disorder who needed treatment between 2011 and 2014 did not go to rehab because it was too expensive or they didn't have any insurance.
The cost to treat addiction is significantly lower than that of treatment. People don't realize the fact that insurance can dramatically reduce rehab costs. New laws require that insurance companies cover treatment for mental illness and addiction.
How Much Does Rehab Cost?
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.
Detoxification refers to the removal of drugs from the body. Based on information from drug treatment facilities throughout the United States and estimates of daily costs, a 30-day detox can cost between $250 and $800.
Basic residential treatment can cost between $2,000 to $20,000. This includes assessments and supervision around the clock. Long-term residential services, lasting 60 to 90 days, can cost twice as much.
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. Patients learn how to live drug-free at home through a series of appointments. For a three-month program, outpatient care can cost as much as $5,000. Outpatient care can cost up to $10,000 in some facilities.
Intensive Outpatient Rehab
Intensive Outpatient Treatment is a more complete version of outpatient services. It usually involves several appointments per week that take approximately three hours each. This treatment can be between $3,000 and $10,000 over 30 days.
Partial Hospitalization Programs
Partial hospitalization programs are for patients who require intensive treatment during the day and can return to their home in the evening. PHP typically costs between $350- $450 per hour.
Medication-Assisted Opioid Treatment
A U.S. Department of Defense report from 2016 estimated the costs of various opioid treatment programs.

Although treatment centers can be expensive, there are some that offer payment assistance and sliding fee scales. Other locations offer programs that are completely free of charge and covered 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 have been helping millions of people to achieve and maintain sobriety for more than 60 years through regular meetings. You may also find free treatment from faith-based organisations.
