Paying for Treatment for Addiction

It is common for individuals struggling with addiction to wonder how they can pay for treatment. Many will need help with rehab costs. Driven by fear that they cannot pay, those who struggle with substance abuse may delay their treatment until it is too late. Regardless of your financial situation, you can afford treatment, and you deserve the peace of mind that recovery can provide.

If you are struggling with addiction, you are not alone. In 2014, 20.2 million adults in the United States had a substance use disorder. Additionally, research indicates that 10% of American adults will have a substance abuse disorder in their lives, and 75% of those individuals will not receive treatment.

Forgoing treatment for any reason, including financial considerations, is not an option. While the health consequences of addiction vary depending on the drug, substance addiction will always take a negative toll on the body. The amount of substance consumed, length of the addiction, and any other drugs that have been used concurrently are some of the determining factors on the impacts on the body.

It is common for addicts to experience health consequences such as changes in mood and appetite, as well as issues related to cardiovascular and respiratory systems, mental illness, brain chemistry, sleep, and memory. In 2015, 33,000 Americans died from opiate use, and many of the deaths were suicides.

Many drugs, including alcohol, alter the chemistry of the brain. As a result, they can cause extreme emotional reactions from panic attacks to depression when the user begins to cease their use of the drug. Mental health issues also play a role in relapse, since depression, insomnia, PTSD, or another underlying issue that sparked the substance use will re-emerge.

With these considerations in mind, the only reliably effective way to break the cycle of addiction is rehabilitation, often including medical detoxification. The question is not “Can I afford to attend addiction treatment?” but instead, “Can I afford not to?” There are several ways to fund a rehab experience to help you or your loved one achieve healing.

Some options for paying for treatment include:

  • Medicaid
  • Medicare
  • State-financed health insurance
  • Private insurance
  • Military insurance
  • Private funding
  • Fundraising or Crowdfunding
  • Non-Profit Treatment Centers

Uncertain of what options might work for you? Many caseworkers at agencies such as job and family services and hospital staff will be aware of resources in your community and can find you help with rehab costs.

Many treatment centers, such as Resurgence Behavioral Health, can talk to your insurance provider on your behalf and walk you through your payment options. With assistance, you may be surprised how many treatment options are available to you and your loved ones.

Effects of Paying for Treatment

While the price of addiction treatment may be significant, the cost of addiction is ultimately much higher. Addiction destroys physical and emotional health, damages relationships, sabotages careers, and many, many lives. Drugs and alcohol are also expensive, costing far more money than many struggling individuals realize.

For example, marijuana can cost as much as $350 an ounce, depending on quality and location of purchase. Prescription drugs can cost up to $40 per dose, such as for a Fentanyl patch, with those consuming multiple doses per day.

Sometimes these costs are unknown to the user, since illegal activities, stolen money, sex, and other non-monetary alternatives are exchanged as addiction takes control. The cost of recovery is a necessary expense, which will save money and lives. While addiction treatment can be found in a variety of price points, it is important to keep in mind that it is an investment worth making. 

An effective rehab program is much more than just detoxification. Professional addiction treatment provides a chance to understand and manage the mental and physical health issues that can cause addiction. Rehabilitation, especially when it is evidence-based and inpatient treatment, allows a user the time to reflect on their life, their needs, and their emotional triggers for addiction.

With the support of a treatment team, those in recovery will develop the tools and coping mechanisms needed to reclaim their lives.

Mental Illness and Paying for Treatment

Substance use disorders and mental illness are closely connected. Many people with addiction have struggled with mental health issues their entire lives, never finding lasting relief. Addiction treatment helps restore balance and is more affordable than self-medication strategies.

While users often seek relief from some underlying mental health issue by self-medicating with drugs and alcohol, substances worsen mental health issues. Addiction will then alter the way the user experiences physical and emotional sensations and may cause anxiety or depression when the user tries to quit. Soon addicts will feel trapped, unable to stop buying drugs, and no longer able to envision a future without them.

At this point, a professional rehabilitation center is the best course of action to provide relief. While in rehab, the body can be detoxified and underlying mental health issues are explored and addressed, promoting long-term wellness in the process. Counselors in treatment centers will be able to help those in recovery see their lives, health, relationships, and financial situations more clearly, and help them build meaningful coping mechanisms.

Why Pay for Treatment?

Addiction treatment is a life-changing experience that helps you uncover a new you. In paying for addiction treatment, you receive more than just detoxification. Instead, the value of addiction treatment lies in the coping skills you will build and the healthier life you begin to create.

From narcotics to alcohol, to opioids, addiction requires effective treatment to manage its symptoms and the underlying causes. Furthermore, treatment centers provide a variety of personalized programs in safe, non-judgmental environments that help you build resilience.

Some of the programs you might find at a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center include:

  • Cognitive Behavioral Therapy
  • Spiritual Therapies
  • 12-Step Treatment
  • Peer Support Groups
  • Prescription Therapies
  • Family Counseling
  • Marital Counseling
  • Music or Art Therapy
  • Medical Detox
  • One to One Counseling
  • Nutrition Therapy
  • Physical Therapy
  • Long-Term Rehabilitation Arrangements
  • Aftercare Plans

Freedom from addiction is a journey, and it will not always be easy. But, it is one of the most valuable and rewarding decisions you can make for yourself and for those you love.
