Before you can beat drug or alcohol addiction, it is important to understand the causes. There are many factors that lead people to abuse drugs and become addicted. 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
For quick highs, stress relief or to manage other health conditions, people resort to substance abuse. The co-occurring symptoms of mental disorders can be made worse by the use of alcohol or other drugs. We teach healthy ways of coping with unhappiness and address all underlying causes of addiction.
Individualized treatment is necessary for those suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. 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 offer safe environments designed for you to detoxify your body from alcohol and other substances. However, detox is only the beginning. 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. It's easier to get help when you have it. Support groups and guidance are key to your success in drug rehab. Support is available to you, regardless if you are in recovery yourself or supporting someone else.
Only a few people with addiction seek treatment because of the perceived high cost. However, the cost of treatment is small compared to the possible health and social consequences of not seeking it. You can avoid these problems by getting help immediately.
Millions of Americans live with an addiction every day. According to a U.S. surgeon General report, almost 21 million Americans suffer from a substance abuse disorder. Only 10 percent 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 to treat addiction is significantly lower than that of treatment. Many people don't realize that insurance can help reduce the cost of rehabilitation. Insurance companies must now cover mental and addiction treatment under new laws.
How Much Does Rehab Cost?
The prices for different levels of addiction treatment vary across the nation. Patients with more severe substance abuse disorders will likely require intensive and prolonged treatment. The cost of intensive care is usually higher than that of standard treatment.
Detoxification is the process of removing drugs from the body and safely ending withdrawal. 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 is estimated to cost between $2,000 and $25,000 and often includes assessments and 24-hour supervision. Long-term residential therapy, which can last between 60 to 90 minutes, may be twice the cost.
Luxury rehab centers can charge up to $25,000 per 30 days. However, most private treatment centers charge less.
Outpatient care allows patients the freedom to live at their own homes while they receive treatment. Patients can learn to live at home and avoid the need for a hospital by attending several appointments. A three-month outpatient program can often cost around $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. For 30 days, this level of care may cost you between $3,000 to $10,000.
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.
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
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.
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 some faith-based organizations that offer free treatment.
