Paying for Treatment

Paying for Treatment



Paying for Treatment


Making the decision to attend an addiction treatment facility is a huge, life-altering choice.  It may have taken you months or years to get to this point of admitting you need help, which is the first and most important step.  Unfortunately, many run into the issue of how they’re going to afford it.  The cost for treatment varies widely, but some highly desired and popular facilities can cost $60,000 for a 3 month stay.  The only way to know exactly how much it will cost is to contact your preferred center.

The recommended length of stay is dependent on individual facilities.  Some treatment centers only offer a 28 day program, while others provide an 18 month program.  The potential relapse rate is near 60 percent, so the longer a person is able to devote towards getting well, the higher the chance they have of remaining clean and sober.  Nevertheless, typically more time equals more money.  The good news is that treatment centers recognize not everyone can afford the associated costs, which is why they offer several options.

Most states in the U.S. have state funded rehabilitation centers, meaning if you present proof of legitimate indigency, they will pay for your attendance.  The only downside of this option is the supply doesn’t often meet the demand, resulting in a potentially long waiting list. Many treatment centers may offer low interest financing to help with related fees, and they may even include deferred payment options.  If you have friends or family who are able to help financially, going that route could be imperative to saving your life.  

A copious amount of treatment centers encourage the attendance of self-help groups, such as twelve-step meetings or various support groups.  While these may not be a complete and adequate substitute for treatment, they are an option if treatment appears to be entirely financially unfeasible.  The financial process of attending a rehabilitation program can be daunting, but it will be one of the best decisions you ever make for yourself.  Don’t let the cost defer you from saving your life.
