How Should I Pay for Rehab?

How Should I Pay for Rehab?Addiction rehab programs vary in price based on the types of services that are provided and the length of the stay. Rehab programs typically last 3 months, 6 months, 9 months, or even up to one year for some Des Moines residents. The length of your program will depend on the severity of your addiction, the number of times you or a loved one has tried rehab in the past, and whether or not there is any family or personal history of mental illness. Understanding your insurance coverage and the types of programs that are available to you will give you a better idea of how much rehab will cost.

Types of Rehab

There are two basic types of rehab: inpatient and outpatient. Inpatient programs take place on-site in a rehab facility and usually begin with medically-supervised detox. After detox a rehab team of doctors and therapist will diagnose any underlying mental illness that is causing or contributing to the addiction. After diagnosis comes individual, group, and family therapy sessions where the person in recovery learns coping skills to deal with the addiction on a daily basis. Many rehab programs also include nutrition counseling, exercise programs, meditation, yoga, spiritual training, and other holistic approaches to encourage overall wellness.

Outpatient programs, Des Moines residents may be interested to learn, have many of the same amenities as inpatient programs, but the person in recovery is able to stay at home after detox and during recovery. Outpatient programs are beneficial for those who need to continue working or taking care of family responsibilities while attending rehab. Outpatient programs tend to be cheaper than inpatient programs since no housing and meals are required. Outpatient rehab is a good option for those who have never tried rehab before or who live in an environment that supports recovery. Your intake counselor will help you understand your insurance coverage and what rehab benefits are available to you through your plan.

Rehab Costs

The price of rehab depends largely on the individual facility, length of stay and what additional programs you or a loved one take advantage of while there. On average, outpatient rehab programs cost between $7,000 and $10, 000 per month. Inpatient programs cost between $20,000 and $35,000 per month. Most of these costs are covered under insurance, and many facilities also offer financial assistance to offset deductibles and other costs not covered by insurance programs.
