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 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.
Resolving the Root Causes of Addiction
For quick highs, stress relief or to manage other health conditions, people resort to substance abuse. However, alcohol and other drugs can exacerbate co-occurring mental disorders. We offer help for all aspects of addiction.
You need to be able to relate to the person receiving treatment for alcoholism and drug abuse. It should be customized to meet your individual needs. We will work with you to design a personal treatment plan. This could include individual therapy, counseling and group therapy.
Proven Treatment Methods
We offer safe environments that will help you detox from alcohol and other drugs. 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. By guiding you through the recovery process and connecting you with support groups, drug rehab prepares you to live a healthy life. Support options are available to anyone, whether you're in treatment or supporting someone you love.
A small percentage of addicts seek treatment, despite the perceived high costs. 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 are living with addiction every day. A U.S. surgeon-general report from 2016 estimates that almost 21 million Americans suffer with a substance use disorder. However, only 10% of these people receive substance abuse treatment.
Why? This is partly because of the cost. 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. 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. 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.
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.
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 therapy, which can last between 60 to 90 minutes, may be twice the cost.
Luxury rehab facilities may charge more than $25,000 per month for 30 days. However, private treatment centers typically charge less.
Outpatient care allows patients the freedom to live at their own homes while they receive treatment. Patients are taught how to stay drug-free by attending a series. Outpatient care is often available for as little as $5,000 per month. Some facilities charge as much as $10,000 for outpatient treatment.
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 treatment can be between $3,000 and $10,000 over 30 days.
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 treatment
A U.S. Department of Defense 2016 report estimated the cost of various opioid addiction treatment programs.

Programs for 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, which have been in existence for over six decades, have helped millions of people maintain or achieve sobriety by holding regular meetings. Many faith-based organizations also offer free treatment options.
