Drug Treatment Center Costs

If you are already down in the dumps, addiction has taken over your life and you are in the need of treatment than chances are that the costs of drug treatment are very, very intimidating to you. Unfortunately, the costs of drug treatment can be a major downfall for many especially those who have already suffered a significant battle with addiction that has ruined their financial history and left them with very little money to spend on treatment. So what does drug treatment cost?

For many, drug treatment just plain costs too much. In fact, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health which asked drug users why they do not seek drug treatment when necessary found that the primary reason that many people do not seek the help that they need is because they cannot afford it. The survey lists more than 1/3 or addicts who were questioned as stating that cost barriers prevented them from getting the help that they needed when it was necessary.

What Does Inpatient Drug Treatment Cost?

Inpatient drug treatment typically costs more than outpatient treatment because inpatient drug treatment centers employ around the clock staff who work with the addict 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Inpatient drug treatment centers also provide housing for the patients during the treatment process which requires additional land and facilities that also up the cost of treatment. While the total cost of drug treatment varies widely based on the level of care that the patient needs as well as many other factors such as the length of time the addict is in treatment, medications that are provided and the level of services provided by the treatment center, most inpatient drug treatment centers have various options available to help individuals to be able to afford the payments for treatment.

How Much Does Outpatient Drug Treatment Cost?

Outpatient drug treatment is significantly cheaper than inpatient treatment but it also has very limited services. Outpatient drug treatment does not provide housing for the patient during treatment which significantly reduces the overall cost of the treatment. Additionally, outpatient drug treatment centers do not have to provide around the clock service which can further reduce the cost. Unfortunately, when an addict is attending outpatient drug treatment they do not receive care around the clock and there is room for error. The lack of monitoring by outpatient drug treatment centers results in a high rate of relapse for those who are receiving treatment.

Paying the Costs Associated with Drug Treatment

If you are concerned about what drug treatment will cost, consider the fact that although it can be difficult to pay for drug treatment, the costs associated with such treatment can be paid in a number of ways. For instance, you may have insurance coverage that can help you pay the cost of drug treatment. Most insurance companies at least cover the cost or a portion of the cost of drug detox and many plans will also pay for the drug treatment itself.

Some drug treatment centers provide flexible financing options and sliding fee scales. Flexible financing options include offering low interest rates or extended payment plans. Additionally, a sliding fee scale makes it possible to pay for only a portion of the drug treatment based on the amount of money that you can “afford” to pay. Sliding fees are based on income, assets and other financial statuses.

Don’t let financial inability to pay for drug treatment keep you from getting the help you need. There are various options available to you at drug treatment centers to assure that even those who have very little or even no money to spend on drug treatment can still afford the help that they need to get well and make a full recovery from addiction.
