When weighing up the most suitable alcohol rehab option for you, your family and your individual situation, it is critical to find a treatment plan that works for you on all levels. In this blog, Port of Call weighs up the relative cost of inpatient vs outpatient rehab treatment, taking financial, social and practical aspects into account.
For some, the structure and routine of inpatient treatment can prove fundamental to their recovery. While for others, the greater freedoms and access to family and friends afforded by outpatient treatment can prove more beneficial.
There is no right or wrong answer. However, it is important to weigh up the relative cost burdens to your finances and your relationships when deciding between both avenues of treatment.
Inpatient treatment for alcohol addiction usually varies in length but is typically priced on a weekly basis. The average cost of inpatient alcohol rehab varies but is usually priced at around £1,500 to £3,000 per week. The specific cost of rehab will depend on a multitude of factors, including the length of stay and level of accommodation.
Let’s look at some of the advantages and disadvantages of inpatient rehab, to help with your decision making process when weighing up the costs.
Outpatient treatment for alcoholism generally costs less than inpatient rehab. Partly because you are not paying for any type of accommodation. It also depends on the kind of rehabilitation centre you receive treatment from though because there is a wide range of rehabs available, with different facilities and luxuries. Once again, let’s look at the relative pros and cons of outpatient rehab, to help you to make up your own mind.
