A lot of variables go into the price of specific treatments and programs. Here are some things you’ll need to consider as you weigh cost options:
- What type of treatment is this? Inpatient care tends to cost more than outpatient care, because they provide so much more in the way of life needs, meals, lodging and activities, as part of around-the-clock care.
- Where is the facility located? Is it near home? Far away? Are you paying more to be in the mountains? At the beach? What travel costs need to be considered?
- How large is the program? Is it a larger program with more participants or a smaller, offering more individualized treatment?
- What types of treatments are provided? Does it include detox? Medically-assisted treatments? Therapy options? Comprehensive aftercare?
- How long is the program? The costs associated with a 30-day program will differ significantly from a 90-day program. What it the right fit for you or your loved one?
- What amenities are offered? While this isn’t a vacation, having certain amenities available can be helpful. A swimming pool, on-sight gym, nutrition counseling, massage therapy, other therapies—there are costs involved with amenities.
Insurance is a major consideration.
It’s important to understand what your insurance will cover, and which rehab facilities and treatment options work with your specific insurance plan. How are the costs addressed? Do you pay upfront and apply for reimbursement? Does the facility bill your insurance company directly? What are co-pays? How is your deductible applied?
And there are life costs to consider.
If you or your loved one require inpatient care, there are other costs that need to be figured in—costs associated with missing work, schedule issues, life-routines which may need to be addressed, such as childcare, eldercare, other associated bills, and more.
A lot that goes into answering the question, how much does it cost to go to rehab? But here’s the most important part of the answer: Whatever the monetary cost of getting treatment, the price of not getting help with an addiction is much greater.
Your health, or a loved one’s health—it’s just too important to let cost be a deterrent. The dangers of addiction, untreated, will exact far higher costs. You can find a rehab option that will work within your life and budget. Whatever you do, don’t let concern over cost talk you out of getting the help you need.
