Drug Addiction and Rehab
Drug addiction is an epidemic in this country and the need for quality drug rehab continues to grow commensurately.
Many people become addicted after using so called recreational drugs. Others become addicted to a prescribed medication.
There are several different types of treatment available to someone who has developed an addiction. First, there are independent therapists and psychiatrist. Keep in mind that therapists (usually psychologist) perform the one-on-one talk therapy, usually lasting a clinical hour (45 to 50 minutes), while psychiatrists, these days, mainly have 20 minutes sessions and prescribe medication. Most do not do talk, or cognitive therapy.
How Much Does Drug Rehab Cost?
The cost of drug rehab overall varies from state to state and treatment center to treatment center. The cost incurred by you typically depends on the type of insurance you carry.
Overall however you can expect total rehab cost to run anywhere between $5,000 and $60,000.
It is generally accepted in the drug rehab industry that higher cost doesn’t necessarily equal higher quality care either, which is why guidance is so crucial to ensure you get the treatment you need at the right price.

Luxury Drug and Alcohol Rehabs

Luxury drug rehabs are always the best choice for every client but sometimes they can make sense as they offer environments that allow the client to focus more on their recovery while everything else is taken care of for them.

Inpatient Rehab: This is when a patient commits to a residential program, which means living on-site at the treatment facility. Typically most patients start their journey here.

Affordable Rehab: Not all rehabs are affordable, especially if you have no insurance and are paying out of pocket. If this is your situation it’s important to understand how to find affordable treatment.
The Best Drug Rehab
There are so many different types of drug addictions and just as many different types of treatment that it is sometimes difficult to determine what the best drug rehab is for any specific case.
Someone with a severe meth addiction is looking for a different type of treatment than, perhaps, someone who may have an ongoing heroin addiction. Additionally, someone seeking treatment for the first time may have different needs than someone who has been through treatment once, or twice, or more times than that.
Many actors and variable must be taken into account. Any drug addiction rehab is going to assess each individual case before taking on that patient. Again, if you’re a hardcore meth addict they may be reluctant to include you with a population off heroin addicts, if that’s what they’re predominantly treating. They’ll assess what drugs, or drugs, you are involved with, your health, your background, your psychological situation, and also whether or not you’re insured.
Drug Rehab Treatment and You
There are also other considerations in terms of how a drug rehab facility will assess whether or not to treat you. Are you coming to treatment on your own? Are you coming willingly? Or, has a court ordered you into treatment to avoid jail? Or are you coming to treatment because your family, or your employer, has forced you into it?
If, for example, you are coming on a court order, the drug rehab may not want to include you with their census off people who have come willingly seeking drug addiction treatment and are very focused on attaining, and maintaining, sobriety. The person coming to treatment unwillingly is a relapse risk and someone who could easily take someone who is newly sober and still fragile down with him. That being said, when you seek treatment, tell any drug rehab you speak to the complete truth in order to allow them to assess whether you, or your loved one, are a good fit and can benefit from their program.
You’ll also want to know what the focus of their treatment is. Whether it’s a 12-step program or one with more science in it, such as neurofeedback, or brain mapping, etc. Also, what other therapies and treatments are included in the program, such as Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT) or Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT) or equine therapy, art therapy, etc. Is there a focus on diet? How is detox handled? There are many variables, so make sure it’s a drug rehab program that fits your needs.
