Before you can conquer alcoholism or drug addiction, it's important to fully understand them. Every individual is affected by different factors that lead you to addiction or substance abuse. We will explain how drugs affect the body, why people use them, and how to get help for alcoholism.
The Underlying Causes of Addiction
For quick highs, stress relief or to manage other health conditions, people resort to substance abuse. Alcohol and other drugs can worsen symptoms of co-occurring disorders. We teach healthy ways of coping with unhappiness and address all underlying causes of addiction.

Supporting Long-Term Recovery
Recovery is a continuous journey. It's easier to get help when you have it. You can expect to be able to transition smoothly from treatment to recovery and introduce you into 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. Although rehab's cost is minimal, it is still much less than the social and health costs that could be incurred if you choose to avoid treatment. These negative consequences can be avoided by seeking help as soon as possible.
Millions of Americans live with an addiction every day. A U.S. surgeon général report in 2016 estimated that close to 21 million Americans suffer from substance abuse disorders. However, only 10% of these people receive substance abuse treatment.
Why? This is partly because of the cost. 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. Many people don't realize that insurance can help reduce the cost of rehabilitation. New laws require that insurance companies cover treatment for mental illness and addiction.
What is the Cost of Rehab?
The prices for different levels of addiction treatment vary across the nation. For people with severe addictions, intensive and extended treatment may be required. Standard treatment is generally more expensive than intensive care.
Detox is the process by which drugs are removed from the body. It also helps to overcome withdrawal symptoms. 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. The cost of long-term residential treatment, which lasts between 60 and 90 day, could be twice as high.
Luxury rehab centers can charge up to $25,000 per 30 days. However, most private treatment centers charge less.
Outpatient care allows patients the freedom to live at their own homes while they receive treatment. Through a series or appointments, patients can become drug-free and live in their own homes. Outpatient treatment can be as low as $5,000 for a 3-month program. Outpatient care can cost up to $10,000 in some facilities.
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. This type of care costs anywhere from $3,000 to $10,000 for 30 consecutive 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 typically costs between $350- $450 per hour.
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
Some facilities offer payment assistance, or sliding-fee scales. Treatment centers can be costly. Some facilities offer programs at no cost, which are paid for by state taxes. These state-sponsored programs often have long wait lists.
Recovery people can also look into support groups such a Narcotics Anonymous, Alcoholics Anonymous, and Narcotics Anonymous. 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.
