For many thousands of Americans finding a drug rehab center that is affordable yet effective can be a difficult task. Often we get asked why drug rehabs cost as much as they do.
The answer is because the healthcare industry as a whole can be expensive, and there are different levels of addiction treatment facilities that have their own price ranges.
As a comparison, a trip to the hospital can typically run about $2,000 per day, and sometimes much more depending on the procedures that are performed.
A medically-monitored detoxification program can cost somewhere between $500 and $1,500 per day and may last 5-10 days, depending on the drug.
An inpatient/residential rehabilitation facility can run between $150-$500 per day, with an average monthly cost being around $7,000-$10,000.
Outpatient programs can run between $20-$100 per day.
Sure, there are exceptions to the rule where you have drug and alcohol rehabs that receive public funding or donations as well as those that run well over $100,000. A program can’t be judged on price alone, as there are plenty expensive facilities that are no more effective than the ones that don’t charge for services.
We specialize in helping people find the most effective type of rehabilitation program for their situation first, and then look at cost and location second. With a recommended length of time being around 3-4 months, it’s not uncommon for a private, non-profit facility to cost between $15,000-$45,000. However, rather than ruling it out as not being an option, there are ways to make something become much more affordable. Sometimes there are partial scholarships available, payment plans and financing where the monthly payment can be much more comfortable to deal with to get very successful help for someone, which is comparable to a year away at college.
Regardless of an individual’s or family’s financial situation, we want to help. We have access to information on thousands of drug rehab centers throughout the country and can help you find a program that works.
