Worth the Price: Drug Rehabilitation’s Cost on your Insurance

It’s not easy when you have an addiction to something. Be it drugs or alcohol, you have to seek help in curing your addiction, if you can’t do it alone. Help is available in the form of rehabilitation centers and its staff, but you can’t expect that help to be given for free.

To know what it will cost you to get better, here is a break-down of how rehabilitation center costs accumulate.

Payment plans

You might have financial troubles after having wasted it away fueling your addiction. The good news here is most rehabilitation centers offer a payment plan to help ease the blow on your finances. Most of them honor insurance as well, with private and military insurance being one of the main options, and Medicaid and Medicare close by.


Options for payment restructuring

Re-structured payments mean that you pay your debt over time, even when you’re already out of the rehabilitation center. This is a good way of getting well now and completing your payment later. It’s completely worth it, especially if it allows you to get started with your session right away which is important.


In-patient/out-patient rehab

These go anywhere from $5,000 to $6,000 for a 30-day program and up to $10,000 to $12,000 for a 90-day program. In-patient therapies deal with you staying in the rehabilitation center for the duration of your session while out-patient therapies are those you can do even while you’re out and about, getting your life back and smoothing your relationships over.


Program duration

Prices can also depend on the length of the session, as seen previously. They can cost to the high 60K’s for a 90-day program to as low as 5K. Depending on the severity of your addiction, you may get checked in for 90 days or you may be in and out for as low as 30 days.



Detoxification costs $1,500 total. In-patient and out-patient therapies often include this as a standard. Detox is needed simply because you have to get wholly better—your body should flush those toxins out if you want to continue with your therapy and get well as soon as possible.


Available amenities

The price of rehabilitation is also affected by the available amenities. Some centers include swimming pool, a gym, and massage therapy as part of the rehabilitation. Others also include counseling of any kind—be it for nutrition, your personal relationships, or just general information about how you can use alcohol or drugs again the way they are meant to be used.

These are just a few things you need to know about rehabilitation and how you’re going to pay for it. Nothing is free, just like they say, but paying to get better is definitely worth it. Act upon cleansing your addiction as soon as you can.

Breaking Free: Getting Away from Addiction and its Grasp

The conscious decision to quit isn’t always there for people who struggle with addictions. They can’t do as much as try—some people have it in them genetically to be weak to addictions. Others, however, seem to be wired with resistance to substance or any kind of abuse.

There’s no other choice when talking about addictions but to quit. How do you do this? It usually requires these tips:


Make the decision to quit.

Addictions are quite hard to turn away from, but that doesn’t mean you don’t try. Make a list of all the things you’re going to quit—consciously—and read them. Some of these you may be able to do right away. Others might require you to seek help. Remember to take quitting these things seriously to avoid a destructive cycle of coming back to the same habit.


Quitting is a conscious habit.

Quitting your habit is a conscious effort of trying to keep a promise—a promise to yourself. Remember this when trying to leave a destructive habit. Remember the list you made? Seek to create a list that would reflect the positive things happening in your life if you manage to quit your habit. Make a result of all the things you will get if you quit your habit.

Your goal will be to become sober or free of drugs, so make sure you’re going to achieve that. It’s going to be hard but with adequate help, you’re going to make it. Having a list of your goals is a good way to make sure you don’t lose your focus. List the things that you want to happen to you, and make it happen.


Create reminders.

Be mindful of what you set out to accomplish by making daily reminders. It is helpful to have that list where you can see it. You can check it for what you are going to do on that specific day, or you can also cross off an activity that you’ve already completed. Going healthy is the key here, so be mindful of what you’re going to do.

People have a certain thing that makes them go back to their habit. What are yours? Be mindful of these, as they could destroy what took you a long time to build. Make sure you’re going to concentrate on getting better before your addiction gets even worse.
