How will I pay?

Rehab can be an expensive process. The cost will vary depending on the amount of care required. Residual treatment programs offer the most comprehensive care but are also the most expensive. Outpatient centers are lower cost but do not provide as many treatment options.

Regardless of insurance status, there are many different ways to cover the cost of rehab. Please call us to speak with one of our professional treatment advisers to find the rehab center that best suits your needs.

Paying for rehab with insurance

Most private health insurance plans will cover a large portion of rehab costs. Some plans will cover the cost in full. It is important to understand how your insurance provider will help pay for your rehab treatment.

The Affordable Care Act

Under the ACA, patients are no longer penalized for having a pre-existing health condition. This opens a large number of doors for people struggling with addiction problems to find healthcare plans. Drug and alcohol problems are listed under the 10 required health coverages that make up the ACA. This means all policies on the exchanges will cover addiction and mental health diseases with the same coverage as typical medical problems. The plans will vary in their coverage. They will range from 60 percent to 90 percent cost coverage. Make sure you understand how much is covered before signing up for a plan.

Medicare and Medicaid

To be eligible for government options, you have to meet certain age and income requirements. These are federal and state-run plans that will cover portions of rehab costs depending on the disorder and individual. These programs are most generous when covering alcohol addiction problems. Each program has different criteria that must be met for eligibility.

Medicaid requirements: Under 18, Over 65, pregnant, or under a certain income level
Medicare requirements: Over 65 or disabled.

Private Funding

The cost of rehab can be overwhelming even with financial coverage. Depending on the type of treatment and overall length of stay, the cost can be back-breaking for certain families. Therefore, it can be helpful to consider private financing options for your addiction treatment. If the person is both uninsured and cannot qualify for government assistance, some addiction treatment centers will offer scholarships to help finance the treatment. It is important to talk to admissions representatives for help with paying for your treatment.

If this is not an option, consider negotiating for a gradual payment plan. This can help spread the cost out over several weeks or months after discharge. This can lessen the immediate financial impact the treatment will cause. This agreement can also be arranged through third party lenders who can set up a loan package.

Consider using savings, IRAs, or 401(k) plans to help pay for the treatment process. While this is not ideal, remember that getting better is the most important step in your life. Home equity loans are options as well.

Other options include asking family and friends to help pay for your help. Crowdfunding options have been successful as well.


There are federal grants available that release block funding for specific people in the population. These criteria include pregnant women, postpartum women, and IV drug users.

Funding an addiction treatment is always possible. Consider speaking with one of our trained Addiction treatment specialists to find you what will work best for you.

Is My Addiction Bad Enough?

For those dealing with substance abuse problems, many questions fill the head. Am I truly an addict? Can I stop whenever I want to? Does my problem merit treatment? How did I get here? For people wondering if their problem merits treatment, the short answer is "yes."

The first step towards deciding if treatment is necessary is to decide if a problem exists. Once someone has admitted that a problem exists, the next step is to decide if the problem warrants treatment. The easy answer is that all addiction problems need and deserve help. The harder part is convincing people that treatment is necessary. First, asking for help is not a sign of weakness. This is a sign of a desire to get better.

Ultimately, all addictions are bad enough to warrant treatment. It can be tempting to try to overcome without help. Many people also believe that addiction treatment is only reserved for people who hit rock bottom. In reality, waiting for a problem to get worse before asking for help will only prolong the recovery time, damage those around the patient, and cause increased harm to oneself. Admitting a problem is the first step. Asking for help is the next. Deciding the appropriate treatment option follows. These are all important steps on the path to recovery. All addictions require treatment. Ask for help today.

Should I Travel For Rehab?

While traveling for rehab is a complex issue, it is more important to consider the right treatment option for you instead of the location.

Choosing Where to Go to Rehab

Sometimes, the right place isn't nearby. Each treatment center is different in its living situation, therapies available, and types of addictions treated.

Many insurance plans offer a multitude of different treatment options; however, other centers might even be out of state.

Regardless of insurance status, finding the right center is important regardless of location.

Benefits of Traveling for Rehab

Traveling for rehab puts people in the mindset of going on a journey towards recovery. For many patients, putting distance between themselves and their addiction or temptations helps minimize the desire to give in to their addiction.

Furthermore, admission to most drug treatment facilities is voluntary. Being away from home makes it harder to walk away from a treatment program. This makes the program more likely to succeed.

Furthermore, privacy during treatment is important. This is more likely to be maintained at a center far away.

Disadvantages of Traveling for Rehab

It is more difficult for friends and family to be active during the treatment process if you are far away. Furthermore, they are unlikely to visit at all.

It is also challenging to go for an extended period of time without seeing your home city.

In addition, spending an extended period of time alone in an unfamiliar city can be challenging. It is important to keep an open mind.

Benefits of Staying Local for Rehab

There are benefits to receiving treatment at a local rehab. First of all, this saves money. Traveling, especially by plane, can be an expensive process. It is important to keep this in mind. Next, people can remain near family and friends. They may even visit. These people can remain active during your treatment process and give something to look forward to upon completion. This also makes it easy for the center to plan a care plan for you upon release.

Disadvantages of Staying Local For Treatment

For people who remain close to home, the ability to go home and give up on the treatment process can be a major distraction. It is important to put this thought out of mind. In addition, having so many family and friends close by can be another distraction. While they are there to help you, you must remain focused on your treatment.

Ultimately, finding the best quality care option is more important than location. This is the most important issue in your life because addiction is a detriment to every other facet of your life. This is not an issue that should be taken likely. It is an investment that is worth spending money to fix.

How Much Does it Cost?

The Cost of a Drug and Alcohol Rehab Program

There is no set cost for rehabilitation programs. The cost depends on the needs of each individual. This should not make any person feel they cannot afford rehab if they have a low income. Treatment options are available at different costs for any level of income.

Understanding Costs

Each rehabilitation program sets their own price. Costs at each facility vary. Some rehab treatment facilities offer free programs while others might bill patients over a thousand dollars a day. Help is available to anyone no matter their budget. Many rehab programs offer financing options, accept insurance and give aid financially. Patients must speak with insurance representatives to know what treatment is covered.

Insurance is not an option for everyone. Talk to counselors and search for a free program or a center for low-income patients. Search for a facility that offers financing or financial aid. Rehabs with free programs often have limited spending funds and lengthy waiting lists. Many inpatient facilities do offer to finance to patients. Many patients fear debt but must remember rehab programs are an investment. Getting healthy is a payment to yourself. Being sober gives the patient their life back. A recovered addict will pay the debt instead of using the money for Drugs and alcohol.

Costs and Addiction Treatment Types

Cost and addiction treatment types go hand-in-hand. There are many different things that affect both.

Detox Outpatient programs can cost up to $1,500. Most inpatient programs include detox. Some addictions have dangerous side effects making them harder to monitor so the price is higher. Some inpatient programs cost about $6,000 for 30 days. 60 to 90 day programs can range from $12,000 to $60,000.

Outpatient Rehab programs cost about $5,000 for three months.

Medications and the types of treatment needed by the patient affect the cost. Some people do not need any medication while others need it to help treat opiate addiction. This can cost a few thousand dollars.

The Cost of Addiction

Rehab is cheaper than addiction no matter your income. Addiction often leads to skipping work and losing jobs. The price of drugs combined with loss of work and health issues associated with drugs is expensive. Many addicts spend thousands of dollars each year on feeding their addiction.

Inpatient programs are much more expensive than outpatient programs. Housing and intensive treatment for inpatient facilities are expensive. The length of the program also affects the price.


Detox from certain addictions affects the cost due to monitoring. Alcohol and heroin addicts many times need medication to help with detox. Counseling is part of most programs and affects cost as well.

Rehab Amenities

Free and low-income facilities don't usually offer amenities. These may include chef prepared dinners, recreation areas, massages and large rooms.

Non-profit and State-funded Programs

You must meet state requirements for a low-income program. Many non-profit organizations offer these programs at a reduced or even free cost. There are also programs funded by the state in many places.

How Do I Overcome the Stigma of Rehab?

When battling an addiction, there are many aspects of getting treatment that can make things harder for the addict. In some cases admitting there is a problem or wanting to end an addiction aren't the hardest parts. For some, the stigma surrounding rehab is enough to keep them from overcoming their addiction.

When contemplating treatment, addicts expect to feel judgment. They are worried going to rehab will call attention to their addiction causing their friends or employers to become aware of this secret. They might not want to try rehab because they see it not work for others, such as celebrities, and think it must not work. Another issue might be them feeling like a failure because they can’t beat addiction on their own. Some may not have support to go to rehab or the ones they do have for support don’t encourage treatment for the fear of themselves being judged.

Now that you are aware of the feelings someone who is apprehensive to get treatment may be feeling, you can work to eliminate them. Whether you are an outsider or you are currently battling an addiction, by educating yourself you can take away the stigma of rehab for yourself or anyone else in your life. A stigma is created by society and even though you changing your thoughts about addiction can’t change the world in a day, you can still have an impact on someone’s life. Armed with the knowledge and understanding of this stigma, you can be an advocate for those struggling with addiction. You can also spread the word that there doesn’t need to be a stigma when it comes to treating addiction.

If you want to end your addiction, there are ways to get past the stigma of rehab. The first thing you can do is learn about addiction to understand why you became addicted in the first place. Understanding this can show you there is more to addiction than what the typical stereotypes say and anyone can have this very thing happen to them. The next thing you can do is only surround yourself with positivity. This might mean cutting ties with those who aren’t in support of you seeking treatment. You can join a support group to listen to others going through a similar struggle. They can also be a great support system in your battle with addiction. And once you complete rehab, speak to others and be there for them. Be the positive light in their lives.

Even though the stigma of rehab might never go away, educating yourself and others can help those around you in need. Most importantly don’t let what others think dictate how your life will be. Don’t wait, get help today and show others why the stigma of rehab isn’t true!

No matter what you're going through, there is an addiction treatment solution that's right for you.

We can help you find the treatment center based on your location, budget and specific needs for support.
