The cost of drug rehab depends on a variety of factors, including:
- The type of program you enter
- Whether you travel outside of your home city to enter a program
- How long you’re in treatment
- Whether your insurance covers any or all of your inpatient treatment
Some inpatient drug rehab programs may be a free option via philanthropic organizations. On the opposite end of the spectrum are luxury rehab facilities, which offer posh accommodations and holistic approaches that might include massage and acupuncture and traditional behavioral therapy, and medical detox treatment methods.
As for the question, ‘how much does inpatient drug rehab cost daily?’ the cost can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars. Luckily for many covered individuals, the Affordable Care Act requires that insurance companies provide behavioral health benefits — and those benefits include chemical dependency treatment. If you have Medicare, Medicaid, another form of state or government insurance, or private health insurance, your plan will probably help cover some of the costs of inpatient drug rehab.
That leaves out-of-pocket costs, which can be up to $500 per day or more but tend to average about $6,000 total for a 30-day inpatient rehab stay. When dealing with 60 or 90-day programs, those costs obviously rise.
