Getting treatment for a substance use disorder costs money. However, it is generally a sound investment in one’s financial future. Active addiction is expensive. When a person abuses drugs and alcohol, not only do they have to pay for their substances, but they often accumulate debts due to their lifestyle choices. Legal problems, unemployment, and health problems can add to the financial disarray. Getting sober provides people with a new chance to improve their skills, pay their debts, start new careers, and even begin saving and investing.
Outpatient programs are significantly cheaper than inpatient treatment programs. This is because outpatient programs only require that clients pay for their limited time at the facility. Residential treatment programs are far more expensive because clients have to pay for their lodgings and all of the associated fees. In an outpatient rehab, clients are only responsible for paying for the therapy, medication, and other treatments they receive. This makes outpatient rehab ideal for people who are not in the best financial shape after years of active addiction.
In many cases, clients do not need to pay for treatment at all. While some free outpatient rehabs exist, most do cost money. Fortunately, insurance companies are legally obligated to pay for addiction treatment under the Affordable Care Act. This means that if you have health insurance, you can attend an outpatient program for free. However, the specific treatment programs covered by a particular health plan vary. If you are interested in a specific rehab, there is no guarantee that it will be covered by your health insurance plan.
