We understand that cost is a factor when it comes to seeking treatment for drug or alcohol addiction. It’s important that the program you choose meets your needs and is affordable for you and your family. Costs can vary because each person’s situation is different, but we can work with you to determine costs based on the information you provide us. We’ll discuss all your options with you and find the solution that best fits your needs.
The True Cost of Addiction vs. Treatment
Addiction never happens at a “convenient” time, and the cost of treatment is always an unexpected expense. But addiction and untreated mental health issues don’t simply get better on their own. Unaddressed substance abuse takes a toll in the loss of time, money and personal well-being. The cost rises the longer the issues go untreated. When you look at the cost of treatment, it’s important to remember that you are making a lifetime investment.
People often pay for a majority of treatment costs using their insurance benefits, but different policies cover different aspects of treatment, so it’s important to know what your policy does and does not cover. There are a variety of factors that can influence treatment costs. Our specialized team works with insurance companies on a day-to-day basis and can help determine coverage and ensure that you get the coverage you are entitled to. When you call us, we can verify your insurance benefits for free and explain what your policy covers. If our treatment program does not meet your needs, we can refer you to another program that will fit your diagnosis and financial capability.
Other Treatment Payment Options
In addition to using health insurance to cover a portion or all of the cost of treatment, some individuals choose a private pay option. This is a viable choice for those who feel comfortable using their own resources, meaning that they cover all treatment costs without the use of insurance. Others rely on the financial support of family or friends to help cover the cost of treatment. While loved ones may be exhausted emotionally or financially, they may still be willing to contribute to a person’s recovery as a positive sign of trust and belief in that person’s ability to make a positive change.
It’s important to remember that treatment is always less expensive than the cost of addiction over an untold number of years. Investing in treatment is a worthwhile endeavor that provides the foundation for a new life — and in the end, it saves time, money, energy and increases quality of life exponentially, making it well worth the expense.
