Before you can conquer alcoholism or drug addiction, it's important to fully understand them. 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
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 teach healthy ways of coping with unhappiness and address all underlying causes of addiction.
A personal approach is required for rehab for drug and alcohol abuse. It should be tailored to you. We work with each client to create a customized treatment plan. It may include counseling, therapy in groups, or medication-assisted options.

Our safe environment is designed to help you get rid of alcohol and other drug abuse. However, detox is only the beginning. We provide healthy coping strategies, stress reduction techniques, and skill to help you achieve success.
Supporting Long-Term Recovery
Recovery is a continuous journey. It is easier to have support. 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. These consequences can be prevented by getting treatment now.
Millions of Americans struggle with addiction each 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. In fact, nearly 40% of Americans suffering from a substance-related disorder didn't seek treatment because they couldn’t afford it.
The cost of treatment is far less than the cost for addiction. Insurance can reduce the cost of rehab, which many people don't know. New laws require that insurance companies cover treatment for mental illness and addiction.
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. In general, intensive care is more costly than standard treatment.
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.
Basic residential treatment can cost between $2,000 to $20,000. This includes assessments and supervision around the clock. 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 However, most private treatment centers charge less.
Outpatient care allows patients to remain at home and receive treatment. Patients are taught how to stay drug-free by attending a series. 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
Intensive Outpatient Treatment is a more complete version of outpatient services. It usually involves several appointments per week that take approximately three hours each. This type of care costs anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 for 30 consecutive days.
Partial Hospitalization Programs
Partial hospitalization programs are for patients who require intensive treatment during the day and can return to their home in the evening. PHP typically costs between $350- $450 per hour.
Medication-Assisted Opioid Treatment
A U.S. Department of Defense 2016 report estimated the cost of various opioid addiction treatment programs.

Even though treatment centers are expensive, many facilities offer payment assistance or sliding fees 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.
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. Many faith-based organizations also offer free treatment options.
