Supporting long-term recovery
Recovery is a continuous journey. 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.
Because of the perceived high prices of addiction treatment, only a very small portion of those who need it pursue treatment. However, rehab costs are small in comparison to the health and social risks of avoiding treatment. These can be prevented by seeking treatment immediately.
Millions of Americans live with an addiction every day. A U.S. surgeon-general report from 2016 estimates that almost 21 million Americans suffer with a substance use disorder. Only 10% of these people receive treatment for substance abuse.
Why? One reason may be due to the high costs. 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. A lot of people are unaware that insurance can greatly reduce the cost for rehab. 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. 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. 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 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 Private treatment centers usually charge less.
Outpatient care allows patients to remain at home and receive treatment. Through a series or appointments, patients can become drug-free and live in their own homes. A three-month outpatient program can often cost around $5,000. Outpatient treatment can be as high as $10,000 at some facilities.
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. This treatment can be between $3,000 and $10,000 over 30 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.
Medication-Assisted Opioid Treatment
A U.S. Department of Defense 2016 report estimated the cost of various opioid addiction treatment programs.

Some facilities offer payment assistance, or sliding-fee scales. Treatment centers can be costly. Other locations offer programs that are completely free of charge and covered by state taxes. These programs, which are state sponsored, often have long waiting list.
People in recovery can also turn to support groups like Narcotics Anonymous or Alcoholics Anonymous. These 12-step programs have helped millions to get sobriety over the past six decades through regular meetings. There are some faith-based organizations that offer free treatment.
