Before you can beat drug or alcohol addiction, it is important to understand the causes. Every person has different factors that can lead to addiction and 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.

A small number of people who are addicted to drugs and alcohol choose not to seek treatment due to the high price tag. But the cost of rehab is negligible compared with the potential social and health consequences of not getting treatment. These negative consequences can be avoided by seeking help as soon as possible.
Millions of Americans struggle with addiction each day. A 2016 U.S. surgeon general report estimated that nearly 21 million Americans have a substance abuse disorder. Only 10% of these people receive treatment for substance abuse.
Why? Costs are a major reason. 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. Many people don't realize that insurance can help reduce the cost of rehabilitation. New laws mandate that insurance companies cover addiction and mental healthcare treatment.
How much does rehab cost?
Each level of treatment in addiction centers across the country is different. For people with severe addictions, intensive and extended treatment may be required. Intensive treatment tends to be more expensive than standard care.
Detox is the process by which drugs are removed from the body. It also helps to overcome withdrawal symptoms. According to data from drug treatment centers across the United States, a 30-day detox program costs between $250 and $800 per day.
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 facilities may charge more than $25,000 per month for 30 days. However, most private treatment centers charge less.
Individuals can receive outpatient treatment while they live at home. Patients are taught how to stay drug-free by attending a series. 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
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 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 usually costs between $350- $450 per daily.
Medication-Assisted Opioid Therapy
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. Some facilities offer programs at no cost, which are paid for by state taxes. These state-sponsored programs are often subject to long waitlists.
For those in recovery, support groups such as Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous can be a great option. These 12-step programs have helped millions to get sobriety over the past six decades through regular meetings. Many faith-based organizations also offer free treatment options.
