How much does drug or alcohol treatment cost?

These are valid questions. The financial investment in treatment is definitely one thing to consider when choosing a provider. But at the risk of sounding like a politician who is really avoiding the question by talking in circles, let’s first talk about the cost of not seeking treatment. The cost of rehab is really small in comparison to the financial price tag for continuing in active addiction. Calling the Recovery Center, a dual-diagnosis treatment center in Athens, GA now at (706) 559-0059 to start your recovery journey can help prevent these very real costs:

Traffic Fines
Vehicle Towing/Storage Fees
Vehicle Repair Bills
Personal Medical Expenses
Court Costs, Fines
Attorney Fees
Restitution for Damages
Insurance Rate Increase
Cost of Ignition Interlock Device
Job Loss
The list can go on and on…and on. In addition, there are health, social, and emotional costs that can’t really be assigned a price tag. According to a 2016 report by the U.S. Surgeon General, almost 21 million people in the United States have a substance use disorder. Yet only about 10% of these seek treatment. Why so few? Many times it is the belief that treatment is not affordable. In reality, addiction is not affordable nor is the lifestyle of addiction sustainable. Lack of funds isn’t a good reason to avoid treatment. The long-term costs of addiction are much greater than the short term price tag for treatment.
Is it worth it? Does it work?
Interestingly, we generally don’t ask these questions when it comes to treating other kinds of diseases. However, the answer is yes, treatment is worth it and it does work! According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, research has indicated that for most people who enter and remain in treatment:
  • Treatment reduced drug use by 40-60%
  • Treatment reduced crime by 40-60%
  • Treatment increases employment prospects by 40%
  • Drug treatment is as successful as treatment for diabetes, asthma, and hypertension
