Article Summary

What is the Cost of Rehab

The effects of Drug addiction and Alcoholism can be devastating to families. It is all too often that recreational use of habit forming substances develops into chronic consumption of substances and addiction. Their are no ethnic or monetary borderlines when it comes to addiction and the people that are effected. Drug addiction and alcoholism can happen to anyone given certain circumstances. And just as anyone can become addicted to drugs or alcohol, anyone can also recover from addiction when they are properly treated.

When a person is struggling with alcohol or drug addiction, it can be very difficult to stop alone, without the help of professionals. An individual with a severe drug or alcohol addiction problem, does typically want to stop deep down, however they just cannot usually figure out how to accomplish it. When and addict does decide that they would like to stop and seek help to do so, one of the first barriers is often the financial resources that are typically required to pay for a good long term inpatient treatment plan.

The cost of a drug and alcohol rehab program will vary depending on the type and intensity of treatment needed for the individual. For a severe addiction problem, long term inpatient drug and alcohol rehab programs offer the greatest chance of a successful recovery. Although it can be financially challenging, it can be well worth the cost. Though outpatient treatment programs will be less monetarily, outpatient alcohol and drug addiction treatment programs do not usually provide sufficient treatment protocols for the sustained recovery of a long term severe addiction.

If you or a loved one have an addiction problem and you trying to get into treatment, below are some of the options to pay for drug and alcohol addiction treatment:

Health Insurance

Most private insurance companies will provide full or partial coverage for drug and/or alcohol addiction treatment. To find out about your substance abuse benefits, contact your provider and verify the benefits that they will provide on your policy.

Paying out of pocket

No one has an alcohol and drug rehab savings account because no one ever thought they or someone they love would be end up with an addiction problem, sometimes there may be no other option than to consider taking the money from savings or to finance treatment through an equity loan or credit cards. The cost of treatment is far less expensive than the expense of an untreated drug addiction or alcoholism problem.

Health Care Financial Loan Groups

Loans are available through health care financial groups such as Prosper Healthcare Providers and Light Stream Healthcare Providers. Both of these health care finance sources are typically far under the high interest rates of conventional credit cards.

Have a Charity Fundraiser

Try raising the finances for treatment through an online charity event. Requesting people to donate funds for treatment does work, people do it successfully everyday through trusted online websites such as GoFundMe. Try it, you have nothing to lose and everything to gain.

Federal Funded Drug and Alcohol Rehab Programs

The federal government does provide some funding to a few drug and alcohol rehab programs. To find out if there is a federally funded state alcohol and drug rehab program in your area call 1-800-662-4357.

Non-Profit Treatment Centers

Some non-profit addiction treatment programs are available for those with very limited income.
