Cost of Meth Rehab
If you are, or someone you love is, starting to look for a drug rehabilitation clinic, consider your options. Prices range greatly, depending on whether you decide to be an inpatient or outpatient, your length of stay and other factors like the amenities of the facility or the patient-to-staff ratio.
Understand that the cost of treatment is worth it, since treatment will save you or your friend or family member from this drug abuse problem. The costs of long-term addiction always outweigh the costs of treatment. When you decide which facility you want to go to, you will be able to talk to the clinic about your payment options and budget.
When you look at clinics, decide what your priorities are first. Do you need to be an inpatient or an outpatient? An inpatient facility allows patients to live on site 24 hours a day. Inpatient clinics have medical care available at all times and the added advantage of peer support from roommates and other patients. These clinics include meals, room, entertainment, therapies and other services in the cost per day. Patients who are highly addicted to a substance like methamphetamine may wish to stay in an inpatient facility to make relapsing less likely and to get the complete behavior and psychological therapies they need to stay sober and off drugs. People who may influence the patient to take the drug will also have a more difficult time getting in contact with him or her, which will make it difficult for the patient to obtain the drug during treatment.
Outpatient facilities work well for those with mild or short-term dependencies or addictions. Outpatient facilities allow a patient to come and go from treatment and therapies. Detoxification processes are normally completed over a few days to a few weeks, depending on the needs of the patient, and psychological treatments are then continued as needed. Patients who use this method of treatment may be those who need to stay or live at home, go to work, or go to school. Outpatient treatment methods can include behavior or family talk therapy, 12-step programs, and other complementary treatments that follow detoxification.
With the help of these facilities, patients can work within their budgets and still get the help they need. The average cost of treatment is far less than that of continued drug use — particularly when you factor in the damage to an addict’s relationships, health and career.
