What Is Aftercare Drug Rehab?
Leaving an inpatient rehabilitation center presents all sorts of challenges for patients. It can be beneficial for patients, after returning to their independent lives, to retain the support of their rehab specialists. Long-term recovery depends on ongoing aftercare treatment programs, so once a patient has finished their initial detoxification or hospitalization program, a medical professional from the addiction recovery center will work with them to come up with the next steps.
At Beachway Therapy Center, aftercare treatment usually includes an intensive outpatient treatment program or an outpatient treatment program with individual, group, and/or family therapy sessions.
How to Pay for Drug Rehab Center Costs
Most health insurance plans cover drug rehab treatment. Patients may qualify for short-term disability coverage if they have a private health insurance policy or a policy obtained through an employer. Family medical leave (FMLA) may also be an option for patients as it secures employment until treatment is over and even offers financing options.
Inpatient treatment is a financial commitment and is typically more costly than outpatient drug addiction rehabilitation. Insurance may cover much of the cost, but patients may still encounter additional expenses and loss of income during treatment.
It’s important that patients carefully consider the financial implications and make informed, responsible decisions. Health is not something to gamble with, so although treatment can be expensive, it should be viewed as a critical investment in a drug- and alcohol-free future.
