Before you can overcome drug and alcohol addiction, you need to be able to recognize their causes. 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.
The Underlying Causes of Addiction
Many people abuse substances to get highs or to deal with stress and other health conditions. 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.
It is important to have a personalized approach when seeking treatment for addiction to alcohol or drugs. It should be customized to meet your individual needs. We work together to create a personalized plan for you that includes individual therapy as well as counseling and group therapy.
Tested Treatment Methods
We offer safe environments designed for you to detoxify your body from alcohol and other substances. However, detox is only the beginning. We will help you learn healthy coping techniques, stress-relief methods, and skills that will make it easier for you to succeed.
Supporting Long-Term Recovery
Recovery is a journey that lasts a lifetime. Being surrounded with support makes it easier. 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.
Because of the perceived high prices of addiction treatment, only a very small portion of those who need it pursue treatment. However, the cost of treatment is small compared to the possible health and social consequences of not seeking it. These negative consequences can be avoided by seeking help as soon as possible.
Millions of Americans struggle with addiction each day. A U.S. surgeon général report in 2016 estimated that close to 21 million Americans suffer from substance abuse disorders. 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.
However, the cost of treatment is much less than that of addiction. People don't realize the fact that insurance can dramatically reduce rehab costs. New laws mandate that insurance companies cover addiction and mental healthcare treatment.
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. Intensive treatment tends to be more expensive than standard care.
Detox is the process to eliminate drugs from your body and avoid 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 costs between $2,000 - $20,000. It often involves assessments and round-the-clock supervision. Long-term residential services, lasting 60 to 90 days, can cost twice as much.
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 learn how to live drug-free at home through a series of appointments. A three-month outpatient program can often cost around $5,000. Some facilities charge as much as $10,000 for outpatient treatment.
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. For 30 days, this level of care may cost you between $3,000 to $10,000.
Partial Hospitalization Programs
Partial hospitalization programs on the other hand are designed for patients who need to be treated intensively during the day, but can return to their normal home environment in the evening. PHP usually costs between $350- $450 per daily.
Medication-Assisted Opioid Therapy
The U.S. Department of Defense released a 2016 report that estimated the cost of various opioid treatment programs.

Programs for 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 programs, which are state sponsored, often have long waiting list.
Individuals in recovery have another option: Narcotics Anonymous and Alcoholics Anonymous are two options. These 12-step programs have helped millions to get sobriety over the past six decades through regular meetings. There are also free treatment options offered by faith-based groups.
