Before you can overcome alcohol and drug addiction, you must first understand their causes. There are many factors that lead people to abuse drugs and become addicted. We will explain how drugs affect the body, why people use them, and how to get help for alcoholism.
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. The co-occurring symptoms of mental disorders can be made worse by the use of alcohol or other drugs. We offer help for all aspects of addiction.

Supporting long-term recovery
Recovery is a process that takes a lifetime. It is easier to have support. You can expect to be able to transition smoothly from treatment to recovery and introduce you into support groups. There are support options available, regardless of whether you are in recovery or caring for a loved one.
A small percentage of addicts seek treatment, despite the perceived high costs. 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 2016 U.S. surgeon general report estimated that nearly 21 million Americans have a substance abuse disorder. Only 10 percent receive treatment for substance abuse.
What is the reason? The reason is partly due to the high cost of treatment. In fact, nearly 40% of Americans suffering from a substance-related disorder didn't seek treatment because they couldn’t afford it.
However, the cost of treatment is much less than that of addiction. Many people don't realize that insurance can help reduce the cost of rehabilitation. The new law requires insurance companies to cover mental health and addiction treatment.
What is the Cost of Rehab?
Each level of treatment in addiction centers across the country is different. Patients with more severe substance abuse disorders will likely require intensive and prolonged treatment. In general, intensive care is more costly than standard treatment.
Detox is the process to eliminate drugs from your body and avoid withdrawal. According to data from drug treatment centers across the United States, a 30-day detox program costs between $250 and $800 per day.
Basic residential treatment costs between $2,000 - $20,000. It often involves assessments and round-the-clock supervision. Long-term residential care that lasts 60 to 90 days may be twice as expensive.
For 30 days of treatment, luxury rehab facilities may charge upwards to $25,000 However, most private treatment centers charge less.
Outpatient care allows patients to remain at home and receive treatment. Patients can learn to live at home and avoid the need for a hospital by attending several appointments. 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
Inpatient intensive treatment is a higher-quality version of outpatient therapy. It typically includes multiple appointments per work week, lasting approximately three hours per day. For 30 days, intensive outpatient treatment costs between $3,000- $10,000.
Partial Hospitalization Programs
Partial hospitalizations are for patients who can return to their homes each evening after receiving intensive treatment during daytime. PHP typically costs between $350- $450 per hour.
Medication-Assisted Opioid treatment
The U.S. Department of Defense published a report in 2016 that estimated the cost of different opioid treatment programs.

Even though treatment centers are expensive, many facilities offer payment assistance or sliding fees scales. Other facilities offer programs for free, funded by state taxes. These programs sponsored by the state often have long waiting 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 millions of people to achieve and maintain sobriety for more than 60 years through regular meetings. Many faith-based organizations also offer free treatment options.
