How Much Does Drug Rehab Cost?

This entry was posted in Rehab Info on by .

If you are searching for a drug treatment center for a loved one or yourself, one of the first questions you’ll have is how much rehabilitation costs. It’s difficult to pinpoint a general cost of treatment since each facility varies based on their location, types of treatment and amenities. Additionally, there is a significant price difference between luxury addiction treatment centers, standard treatment centers and addiction recovery programs offered by the city and state. Also, inpatient care costs substantially more than outpatient care.

On average, inpatient treatment programs cost between $3,000 and $12,000 a month. While the pricing schedule is vast when it comes to addiction treatment, there are clear benefits to spending more on treatment. With higher quality treatment, you receive a personalized treatment plan, individualized care and attention from staff and a wide variety of treatment modalities. That being said, a luxury environment is not necessary for treatment, therefore, it’s not necessary to pay significantly more for these conveniences.

Let’s take a look at the various types of drug and alcohol treatment centers available in Arizona and what to expect from each in terms of cost and features.

Ultra-Luxury and Luxury Treatment Treatment Centers

The most expensive of the bunch, ultra-luxury and luxury treatment centers can cost $20,000 to $80,000 a month. These treatment centers are not what you may imagine, however. They include massage therapists, nail technicians, personal trainers and gourmet chefs. These rehabilitation centers offer high-quality care in a private, personalized setting. These centers are located in scenic areas like Utah or California, strategically positioned away from city life.

With the cost of these recovery programs, they are mainly designed to suit the needs of business professionals, professional athletes, celebrities and politicians. These centers also accommodate their patients’ requests, such as the need for nannies, transportation or care for pets.

Standard Treatment Centers

Standard treatment centers are not standard in the care they provide. In fact, they often offer a similar level of care as luxury rehab centers but without all of the amenities. Since these programs focus more on the treatment they provide than opulence, more can be accomplished in the 30, 60 or 90 day treatment programs. Standard programs cost between $10,000 and $20,000 a month and offer a variety of specialized treatment programs.

These centers are a great choice for those who want high-quality, customized care but without the luxuries. Still, standard treatment facilities offer some amenities like swimming pools and exercise rooms. You may be surprised to learn that some of the best treatment centers in the world are offered by standard rehabilitation facilities.

Low-Cost and Government Programs

When looking for low-cost programs, start with what your insurance provider to determine what your plan will cover. Many insurance plans cover some of the cost of treatment, but often do not cover additional treatment like detoxification, withdrawal monitoring and psychological treatment. Even with insurance, you may have to pay premiums or portions of the care. You may be limited on the types of treatment centers that are covered, but insurance can be very helpful when it comes to finding lower priced treatment.

If you have no insurance and limited funds, your options for treatment may be limited, but they are still available. Check to see what programs are offered by your neighborhood, city or state, as health departments offer free healthcare to low-income individuals. These services may also be offered on a subsidized schedule based on your income. Other areas to inquire with include church groups, charities and nonprofit organizations. These organizations cater to individuals who have no insurance and low incomes but are desperately committed to getting sober.

The River Source: Finding the Balance

The River Source, with two campuses in the heart of Arizona, has seemed to find the balance between high-quality treatment and affordability. We have a wide range of programs to treat our patients, including Nutritional IV Therapy, Dry Sauna Detox, Prolotherapy and Hydrotherapy. We also have naturopathic detoxification onsite for 3 to 10 days. Our staff includes nurses, nurse’s aides, doctors, life coaches, behavioral health technicians and counselors. Some have had personal experience with drug addiction themselves, lending a supportive ear to our patients.

Additionally, our campuses are located in desert country, so patients can enjoy a scenic landscape that soothes the soul and enables them to focus on recovery. What makes our prices lower than average is the fact that we have a partnership with the Southwest College of Naturopathic Medicine, allowing us to offer the latest advances in naturopathic medicine at a reduced cost. Also, our facility, while clean, safe and secure, is not a luxury setting. We believe that too many luxuries are distracting to full recovery.

The River Source accepts most insurance plans, enabling more patients to take advantage of our high-quality care at an affordable cost. We are proud to say that we have bridged the gap between patient-centered care and affordability.
