The number of people seeking rehabilitation to treat their addiction is on the rise, according to Statistics Canada. Because of the exceptionally negative impacts that arise from addiction, it can be difficult to put an exact cost on rehab, recovery, and overall well-being. A treatment center that offers evidence based, proven medical, psychiatric, and individualized care programs can be expensive, however the costs of such care can be offset in several ways.

What’s the Bottom Line?

Prices for treatment vary widely, and that is due mostly to the amount of individualized care a client receives when they decide to seek help. A residential rehab program involves a client leaving home and relocating to the centre for the duration of their rehab treatment process. This means that everything from their therapy to their meals is catered to them specifically, they are given a fair amount of privacy balanced with personalized care. This is often the most expensive form of rehab and can cost in the thousands of dollars per month. Outpatient treatment programs are similar to “day centers”, and the client goes home at the end of the day, which reduces cost, but is often not the best option for someone trying to completely sever their ties to the triggers. At the end of the day, costs are directly related to how many services a treatment center offers. Do you have a private room? Are healthy meals provided? Are alternative therapies offered? Where is the facility located? These are all factors that raise the cost but also raise the chance someone has of succeeding in their goal of attaining good health and sobriety.

What Can Be Done to Offset The Cost?

Addiction to any substance will often rip through an individual’s life frequently leading to poor life choices, consuming savings,  and can lead to a loss of one’s job or career. This added stress can affect the family or loved ones, and lead them to panic a little bit when they see the costs of attending residential rehab.
The good news is that it is possible to take advantage of a few things to lower the cost of getting someone the help they need:

  • Employers may offer to cover all or part of the cost of rehab as part of their company policy or insurance program
  • Private insurance can be used to cover part of the cost, if the insurance company offers this type of coverage
  • Financing is another option that many rehab centers offer, often at very reasonable rates

There are ways to overcome the cost of a loved one going into rehab, and it is important to explore the options available to them. The cost of one’s overall health is difficult to put into dollar amounts, but addiction and the root causes of addiction are treatable conditions, despite how hopeless or desperate the situation may seem right now.
