Drug rehab costs will vary from centre to centre and depending on the type of treatment that is offered. While some may be able to fund the rehab themselves, others may look for support elsewhere to help cover the cost of treatment. If you are looking to access a drug rehabilitation programme but are struggling to finance treatment by yourself, we have outlined some of the best ways of covering the cost of inpatient drug rehab.

Drug rehab costs

How much does drug rehab cost?

The cost of drug rehab programmes can vary depending on a range of factors, including whether you are opting for inpatient or outpatient addiction treatment. However, the average cost for drug rehab can be anything between £1,500 – £3,000 a week, subject to the type of centre, facilities and treatment available. It is important to bear in mind that these prices are based on a weekly treatment plan, however the length of stay will differ from person to person. While some may only need a week-long treatment programme, others may require rehab treatment for a longer period of time. This will be decided by a medical practitioner in the assessment process.

How much does inpatient drug rehab cost?

The cost of inpatient drug rehab can be slightly more expensive than outpatient rehab. This is largely due to service overheads and the detailed level of care offered at a private rehab facility. Private rehabs usually provide 24 hour nursing care, a team of dedicated medical professionals and offer supportive therapy sessions, food and drink. It is important to note that, unlike outpatient rehabilitation, extra care and support is given at an inpatient rehabilitation centre, making the process as simple as possible. It is for this reason that the average cost for drug rehab is likely to be around £2,500 a week.
Luxury inpatient rehab centres are also available for those seeking help to overcome addiction in the comfort of a spa-like residential facility. However, these are likely to be more expensive.

Funding options for drug rehab

If you are unsure as to whether you will be able to cover the cost of inpatient drug rehab treatment, there are a number of alternative ways available to you, such as:

Family or friends

Addiction is extremely difficult for friends and families of an addict. If a person shows commitment to overcoming addiction and seeking help, loved ones may help cover the cost of drug treatment. While some families gift the money to fund the course of rehab, others may loan the money until the individual is able to pay it back.

Private health insurance

Funding rehab through private health insurance is one of the most common ways of funding drug treatment. Drug treatment costs are often covered in many private health insurance policies. However, it is important that you contact the company directly and double check before registering for rehab.

Commercial loans

In some cases, a bank may be willing to lend money to pay for the cost of drug rehab programmes.

Why should you go to an inpatient drug rehab facility?

Drug rehab costs often deter people from seeking the crucial treatment they need. However, it cannot be stressed enough just how pivotal a drug rehab centre can be in providing you with the support and care you need when trying to overcome addiction.
