When you make the decision to seek help, one of the first questions that pops into your head is probably “how much does rehab cost?” There are a lot of factors that decide how much drug rehab treatment costs and most of it depends on your preferences.
When deciding on rehab, ask yourself a couple of questions about yourself and your circumstances:
- What type of rehab am I interested in?
- Which level of care do I need?
- What insurance do I have? Do I have insurance that will cover treatment?
- Where do I want to go for treatment?
- Will I need more than just drug rehab therapy? (Dual diagnosis)
You may not have all the answers to these questions now and some of them require a bit of additional research. But, the most important question to address first is determining what type of care you’re interested in.
Types of Rehab
Drug rehab facilities often offer different types of rehab with varying levels of care. Basically, the more involved the treatment, the more expensive it’s likely to be. If you’re wondering “how much does rehab cost?”, the first thing you need to decide is what level of care is right for you:
- Inpatient/Residential. This is the most involved form of care a drug rehab facility can offer. It involves the client living at the treatment facility and receiving 24/7 care and monitoring.
- Partial Hospitalization Program. This is a form of care similar to inpatient/residential except that the living quarters are a separate campus from the treatment facility. The facility will provide transportation for clients from their residences to the facility.
- Intensive Outpatient Program. This level of care is less intensive than the previous two options and is often cheaper. In this style of rehab, clients visit the treatment facility three to five times a week and participate in therapy sessions. IOP programs may also offer sober living options, which is where the client pays a nominal fee for living in the facility. Unfortunately, patients can’t charge insurance for sober living.
- Outpatient Program. This is like an even less intense version of IOP because clients visit the facility less frequently and often opt out of sober living. Clients visit the facility once or twice a week and usually participate in individual therapy, although group therapy is sometimes an option.
Another question you may have in addition to “how much does rehab cost?” is “what’s dual diagnosis?”. If you have a substance use disorder in addition to mental illness, then you may require a dual diagnosis. We’ll cater your treatment to tackle both, but you may require additional care or therapy on top of drug rehab treatment.
Can I Afford Rehab?
Once you decide what level of care and type of rehab you’re interested in, it’s time to consider payment options. Luckily, most facilities accept a variety of drug rehab insurance policies.
If you don’t have insurance, many facilities will also work with lending and financing offices to make paying for treatment more practical. Drug rehab facilities are there to help and will work through the claims process with you so that you don’t have to face it alone.
