How much can I expect to pay for rehab and will insurance cover it?

People struggling with substance abuse and addiction often want to know how much rehab costs. Unfortunately, this can vary widely because the total cost depends on so many variables, including the type of treatment offered, the timeframe for treatment, the relative level of the facility in terms of amenities, food, staff-to-patient ratio, etc. With treatment advances and a greater number of facility options coming available in the past few decades, rehab is generally more affordable than it used to be in the past. On average, a residential treatment facility might charge approximately $4,000 per week for drug or alcohol rehab; however, there are treatment centers both below and above that threshold. Please be aware that many facilities accept insurance and even if you are not covered in full, you may be eligible for partial coverage. A rehab/recovery facility may also be willing to provide flexible payment options including installment or sliding scale payments.

What is the typical length of time for a rehab program?

Generally, residential rehab treatment facilities will offer programs running between 30 days and 90 days. Programs that are shorter or longer than this are available but most programs will fall within that range.
