Most inpatient rehabilitation facilities are expensive. They prefer patients with good credit and insurance. However, substance abuse is often associated with financial problems. Not every addict can pay $1,000-$1,500 for detox. Inpatient treatment can cost about $6,000 a month on average. And if compared to a price policy of more reputable and luxury rehab centers, this price can seem quite modest. But if you really want to battle your substance abuse problem and start a new healthy life, then try to receive professional treatment. In rehab, you can undergo detoxification under medical supervision and learn useful coping strategies. AddictionResource authors say that there are treatment options for everyone. If you cannot pay for your treatment, that doesn’t mean that you cannot get it. Using SAMHSA’s National Directory of Drug and Alcohol Abuse Treatment Facilities (2021), you can find free local resources or find affordable rehab programs.
Obviously, free rehab centers cannot offer the range of services provided by professional centers with income. They do have some disadvantages, as you can see in the infographic. At the same time, it is a great chance for a better life for someone who doesn’t have any other treatment opportunities.
