Before you can overcome alcohol and drug addiction, you must first understand their causes. 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.
Treatment of the Sub-Principal Causes of Addiction
To get a quick high, or to manage stress or other health issues, many people turn to drugs of abuse. Alcohol and other drugs can worsen symptoms of co-occurring disorders. We help you learn healthy ways to deal with your unpleasant emotions and treat the root causes of addiction.
You need to be able to relate to the person receiving treatment for alcoholism and drug abuse. You should tailor it to your specific needs. We work together to create a personalized plan for you that includes individual therapy as well as counseling and group therapy.

A small number of people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol choose not to seek treatment due to the high price tag. Although rehab's cost is minimal, it is still much less than the social and health costs that could be incurred if you choose to avoid 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% receive substance abuse treatment.
This is why? This is partly because of the cost. 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.
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?
The prices for different levels of addiction treatment vary across the nation. People suffering from severe substance use disorders may need more intensive and extended treatment. Intensive treatment tends to be more expensive than standard 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 is estimated to cost between $2,000 and $25,000 and often includes assessments and 24-hour supervision. Long-term residential care that lasts 60 to 90 days may be twice as expensive.
For 30 days, some luxury rehab facilities can charge as much as $25,000 However, private treatment centers typically charge less.
Outpatient care allows patients to remain at home and receive treatment. Patients are taught how to stay drug-free by attending a series. 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 hospitalizations are for patients who can return to their homes each evening after receiving intensive treatment during daytime. PHP costs approximately $350-$450 per day.

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 programs, which are state sponsored, often have long waiting list.
For those in recovery, support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous can be a great option. These 12-step programs have been helping millions of people to achieve and maintain sobriety for more than 60 years through regular meetings. There are also free treatment options offered by faith-based groups.
