Before you can conquer alcoholism or drug addiction, it's important to fully understand them. 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.

Supporting long-term recovery
Recovery is a process that takes a lifetime. Being surrounded with support makes it easier. The goal of drug rehab is to prepare you for a life free from addiction. We will help you navigate your recovery, and connect you to support groups. Support is available to you, regardless if you are in recovery yourself or supporting someone else.
Because of the perceived high prices of addiction treatment, only a very small portion of those who need it pursue treatment. 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 live with an addiction every day. A 2016 U.S. surgeon general report estimated that nearly 21 million Americans have a substance abuse disorder. However, only 10% of these people receive substance abuse treatment.
Why? One reason may be due to the high costs. In fact, nearly 40% of Americans suffering from a substance-related disorder didn't seek treatment because they couldn’t afford it.
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?
There are many levels of care at addiction centers throughout the country. Prices vary for each one. For people with severe addictions, intensive and extended treatment may be required. In general, intensive care is more costly than standard treatment.
Detoxification is the process of removing drugs from the body and safely ending 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.
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 However, most private treatment centers charge 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 care is often available for as little as $5,000 per month. 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.

Programs that are cost-free
Although treatment centers can be expensive, there are some that offer payment assistance and sliding fee scales. Other facilities offer programs for free, funded by state taxes. These state-sponsored programs often have long wait lists.
Recovery people can also look into support groups such a Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Narcotics Anonymous. These 12-step programs have been helping people in recovery for more than 60 decades. They offer regular meetings that help them stay sober. There are some faith-based organizations that offer free treatment.
