Before you can beat drug or alcohol addiction, it is important to understand the 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
People use substances of abuse to obtain quick highs, relieve stress, and to cope with other medical conditions. The co-occurring symptoms of mental disorders can be made worse by the use of alcohol or other drugs. We help you learn healthy ways to deal with your unpleasant emotions and treat the root causes of addiction.
You need to be able to relate to the person receiving treatment for alcoholism and drug abuse. Your needs should be considered. We will work with you to design a personal treatment plan. This could include individual therapy, counseling and group therapy.

We provide safe environments to help you rid yourself of alcohol or other drugs. However, detox is only the beginning. To set you up for success, we will teach you healthy coping strategies, stress relief techniques, and skills.
Supporting long-term Recovery
Recovery is a journey that lasts a lifetime. It is easier to have support. The goal of drug rehab is to prepare you for a life free from addiction. We will help you navigate your recovery, and connect you to support groups. 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 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% of these people receive treatment for substance abuse.
Why? Costs are a major reason. A staggering 40% of Americans with a substance misuse disorder who needed treatment between 2011 and 2014 did not go to rehab because it was too expensive or they didn't have any 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.
What is the Cost of Rehab?
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.
Detoxification is the process of removing drugs from the body and safely ending 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 is estimated to cost between $2,000 and $25,000 and often includes assessments and 24-hour supervision. Long-term residential care that lasts 60 to 90 days may be twice as expensive.
Luxury rehab centers can charge up to $25,000 per 30 days. However, most private treatment centers charge less.
Outpatient care allows people to stay at home while receiving treatment. Patients can learn to live at home and avoid the need for a hospital by attending several appointments. Outpatient treatment can be as low as $5,000 for a 3-month program. Outpatient treatment may be available at some facilities for up to $10,000.
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 costs approximately $350-$450 per day.
Medication-Assisted Opioid Treatment
The U.S. Department of Defense published a report in 2016 that estimated the cost of different opioid treatment programs.

Programs for free
Although treatment centers can be expensive, there are some that offer payment assistance and sliding fee scales. Some programs are free and paid for by the state. These programs, which are state sponsored, often have long waiting list.
Recovery people can also look into support groups such a Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Narcotics Anonymous. 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. There are also free treatment options offered by faith-based groups.
