Cost of Drug Rehab Programs
The cost of drug rehab programs doesn’t need to be a barrier to getting help to stop a drug addiction. When you consider how much the addict has already spent on his or her habit and the money friends and/or family members have shelled out to help the addict, the cost of getting drug treatment is a good investment.

How to Manage Rehab Costs
Costs associated with drug addiction treatment programs vary greatly, depending on the specific program in question. Inpatient treatment programs – where the addict lives at the facility full time – are generally more expensive options since the patient’s room, board and meals must be included in the program cost. Outpatient programs – where the addict attends treatment during the day but returns home at night – are often less expensive since these costs do not need to be included. Luxury rehab programs are the most expensive option as they often include various high-class amenities, such as gourmet meals, personal training sessions, private yoga sessions and posh accommodations.
While the cost of addiction treatment can be high, you shouldn’t be dissuaded from seeking the help you need because of your financial situation. There are various options available to help make rehab treatment a feasible solution for any financial situation.
In fact, there are many ways that the cost of a drug treatment program on the individual can be lessened or financed, including:
- Coverage provided through a health insurance plan
- Employer reimbursement packages
- Financing arrangements with the facility
If you think that all drug treatment centers are private facilities that cater to the rich and famous, you would be mistaken. Some drug rehab facilities work on a sliding scale and charge only what their clients are able to pay. Other addiction treatment centers are publicly funded; however, these programs often have long waiting lists.
Before you enroll in rehab, check with your insurance provider. Some plans offer partial coverage for addiction treatment and this can go a long way to offsetting the costs of rehab. It’s then important to talk with the facility in question to ensure that they work with your insurance provider. You should also check with your employer regarding any partial coverage they may offer for employees who seek addiction help.
Most drug treatment centers offer financing options for patients. This allows you to receive treatment now, when you need it, and then pay off the cost of your treatment on a manageable payment plan. Since most addicts are not in a good position financially due to their addictions, they are most often in a better financial position after treatment. A long-term payment plan allows these individuals to pay off the cost of treatment once they are sober and better able to get a good job or perform their duties at work.

While it is only natural to worry about the costs associated with rehab, parents and family members should keep in mind the high cost of doing nothing about their loved one’s addiction. Drug addiction brings with it the potential of dire health effects, career ruin, criminal or legal issues, and the destruction of relationships. You can’t put a price tag on this level of devastation to a person’s life. Needless to say, the consequence of standing idly by is much higher than even what the most expensive rehab programs charge.
