How Much Does Addiction Treatment Cost?

Determining how much addiction treatment will cost can require many different inputs and depending on the outcome, you could come up with a very wide figure range. For small time programs that involve only outpatient services, the cost of treatment may only be about $50-100 per session but for larger, intensive residential treatment programs or luxury programs, the cost could exceed a range of one hundred thousand dollars per month or more.

There are many factors that contribute to the total cost of addiction treatment including:

  • Counseling for other issues
  • The need for prescription medications
  • The length of time that it takes to detox
  • The severity of the addiction
  • The type of treatment chosen (inpatient or outpatient, intensive or long-term)
  • Luxury amenities
  • On-site doctors or other staff

Each of these factors can increase the total cost of addiction treatment or at least play a key role in what your final bill will look like. Fortunately, there are insurance plans that can help cover some of the costs of addiction treatment and there are many public programs that provide services on sliding scales or other means of offering low-cost or affordable treatment to those who need it.

Is It Worth the Cost?

Addiction treatment cost may vary depending on your wants and needs.

Many wonder if the treatment that they will receive is actually worth the cost. The fact is, if you are committed to getting sober and you take an active role in an addiction treatment program, the chances that you will recover are very high. Recovery is definitely worth whatever the cost is because it is during recovery that you will find your way in life, make new friends and get past addiction. There’s really no price that you can put on saving your own life—is there?

Saving lives, that’s what addiction treatment does and how could one place an actual cost on that? Unfortunately, despite the affordable treatment options that are readily available to assist patients, many people who are addicted to drugs never do get the help that they need. In fact, it is estimated that less than 5% of those who are addicted to drugs will ever receive quality treatment that helps them to achieve sobriety and recovery success. Such a failing number in an industry in which there is so much potential for help and healing is simply sad.

What you can do

If you or a loved one is seeking treatment for addiction, don’t stop your search simply because you think that you cannot afford the help. Many programs offer low cost treatment or affordable payment plans that can make the process of getting the help you need at a price you can afford more practical. The only way that you will ever know the true cost and the true benefits of addiction treatment is to try it out for yourself—it could save your life!
