One of the biggest concerns people have when looking into drug addiction rehab is its cost. For many, the price tag on rehab is a major deterrent for seeking treatment. However, paying for rehab doesn’t have to be overwhelming. There are many treatment options, payment resources, and insurance options that can make the process of paying for rehab significantly less stressful.
Options for Drug Rehab
The price of drug rehab depends heavily on the type of rehab you choose. Most treatment centers offer a variety of substance abuse treatment programs that cater to the unique needs of individuals. While these treatment programs vary in the level of care they offer, they also vary in price.
Residential inpatient treatment programs are the most common and effective form of addiction treatment. This form of rehab involves clients staying in an on-site facility and receiving 24/7 care. Since this type of treatment offers the most thorough and comprehensive level of care, it’s also the most expensive.
Partial hospitalization treatment is similar to residential inpatient, but it offers slightly more flexibility and sometimes costs less than inpatient. Clients live in an off-site house or facility with other clients in the same program. Every day, the center transports clients between the treatment campus and their lodging. In this program, clients have more freedom to develop life skills and build bonds with their peers.
Intensive outpatient programs differ from residential and PHP in that clients don’t live in a facility-managed lodging. Instead, clients live at home and transport themselves to the facility for treatment. While this is a great option for someone who just graduated from an inpatient or PHP program, the stress and temptation that comes with living at home can make recovery difficult. However, this option may be appealing since it costs less than a residential or PHP program.
Outpatient is similar to an intensive outpatient program, but it offers even less structure. This type of treatment requires clients to visit the facility less often and for shorter periods of time. This option may not be as effective for someone who has a history of relapse, but it is also the cheapest of the other options.
Finding Help Paying for Rehab
There are many options for someone who needs help paying for rehab. If you have insurance, most addiction treatment centers accept major insurance carriers. Denver Recovery Center in Colorado accepts a number of national providers, including:
- United Healthcare
- Blue Cross Blue Shield
If you’re unsure about whether or not you’re covered, contact your insurance carrier or Denver Recovery Center for an insurance verification.
There are also options outside of insurance. Some people save up their extra income or pinch pennies, ask friends and family for assistance, or take out loans from the bank. There may also be public assistance options to help with paying for rehab depending on your state.
