What is the cost of treatment?

The cost of treatment will vary depending on your insurance coverage, but we contact your insurance company to figure out the most affordable options that are available to you. At The Treatment Helpline, we know that treatment is worth it and you're more than worth it. The following factors will also determine how much treatment will cost:

  • Inpatient vs. outpatient treatment
  • Level of care (luxury treatment vs. standard facilities)
  • Length of time in treatment

How long does treatment take?

The length of treatment will depend on the option that you choose. For example, an outpatient treatment program can take two weeks to a month whereas an inpatient treatment program may last anywhere from 30 to 90 days. Duration will also depend on the treatment center, the type and severity of addiction, and the patient's current health condition. Other factors involved may be the history of abuse, the specific needs of the patient, and any other pre-existing mental or physical health conditions. The longer that someone stays in treatment, the better the chances that someone has of living a life free from addiction and will lessen the chance of relapse.

How do I choose between inpatient and outpatient treatment?

Choosing between inpatient and outpatient treatment typically comes down to the type and severity of the individual's addiction. Inpatient treatment takes place entirely at a treatment facility with round-the-clock access to trained medical professionals for whenever you may need assistance. Another highly beneficial aspect of inpatient therapy is that it allows you to escape from the previous environment and factors that may have triggered or perpetuated your addiction; you'll be able to effectively work on your recovery in a new and safe environment. During your time in inpatient therapy, you'll have the option to participate in one-on-one therapy, group therapy, education classes, and other types of therapies to help you along the way.

An individual going through outpatient treatment has the opportunity to go to a facility and receive treatment but can then return home or resume work after. Outpatient treatment sessions can last anywhere from a couple hours to an entire day. It is typically less expensive than inpatient treatment because there are fewer costs associated but the treatment won't be as extensive. Those who decide to proceed with outpatient treatment are usually suffering with light to moderate addictions or who need to continue working or supporting their families and can't afford to take time off.
