Cost of Addiction Treatment

The cost of addiction treatment will vary based on many different factors. These factors will range from insurance coverage, type of program, traveling costs, the length of stay, facilities and amenities. When searching for a proper drug rehab facility the most important thing to keep in mind is the quality of treatment. A JCAHO or NAATP accredited facility is an excellent sign that the facility you’re looking into provides an ethical, high-quality and effective drug or alcohol addiction rehab service.


Your insurance coverage may greatly affect the cost of addiction treatment. Some policies may cover more of the cost than others. If you’re not sure if your policy will cover the costs, our admissions coordinators can review your benefits for you. Contact us or call 1-888-986-7848 to find out if your insurance will pay for rehab. Our first priority is securing effective treatment for you or your loved-one, and we will do our absolute best to make sure you do. If we cannot be your addiction treatment provider, we can refer you to one of our trusted partners.

Type of Program

Some drug & alcohol treatment centers offer very exotic forms of addiction treatment. These treatment methods may increase the cost that you or your insurance will have to pay for rehab. Review the treatment plan and find out what is covered in the costs. Recovery Ways offers two cutting edge treatment programs that can be included in your treatment plan: sober recreation therapy and sensory integration. These programs are highly effective, make recovery a more enjoyable experience as a whole, and are not commonly offered at drug rehab facilities at our price point.

Traveling Costs

Traveling to treatment should not be a barrier to entry. In fact, many suggest that removing yourself from the toxic environment and other negative triggers will let you or your loved one focus on healing and recovery. The cost of traveling for addiction treatment will vary on your location in relation to the treatment center you choose and how you choose to travel. If you choose Recovery Ways as your addiction treatment center, we will help make travel arrangements for you, keeping your transition to our program smooth.

Length of stay

The cost of addiction treatment will rely heavily on how long you are admitted. Most programs range between 30 and 90 days but can vary greatly based upon the level of care needed and/or desired. During the creation of your treatment plan, the length of stay will be determined by a combination of your insurance company and our clinicians.

The Real Cost of Addiction Treatment

The cost of drug or alcohol rehab will vary, but it’s nothing in comparison to what an addiction costs. If you are addicted to drugs or alcohol ask yourself these questions:

  • How much do I spend purchasing drugs or alcohol in a year?
  • How much have my medical bills been over the last year associated with my addiction?
  • How much will my medical bills be in the future?

The sum of these costs will most certainly exceed the cost of addiction treatment. If you want to save money and live a happy and healthy life, you need to seek the help of addiction professionals immediately. If you’re ready to make a change and live a drug-free life, the admissions coordinators at Recovery Ways can help. Please contact us here or call 888.986.7848.
