What’s The Cost Of Oxycontin Rehab?

The cost of Oxycontin rehab can vary greatly. The final cost typically depends on a few variables:

1. The city or state in which you seek treatment.

2. The type of rehab you choose (inpatient vs. oupatient).

3. The length of time spent in the rehab program.

Inpatient rehab programs are typically much pricier than outpatient programs. However, inpatient treatment provides a safe and medically supervised environment for people who are trying to quit. While free treatment is available in some area, these programs may require heavy documentation or have long wait lists for entry. Luxury inpatient rehab centers, such as those that offer spa services, typically charge the most.

Detox services for OxyContin typically range from $300 – $500 per day.
Outpatient rehab typically ranges from $100 – $300 per day.
Inpatient rehab typically ranges from $300 – $1,000 per day.
Luxury rehab typically ranges from $700 – $2,000 per day.

The cost of Oxycontin rehab on an outpatient basis is often affordable, but can come with some disadvantages. Outpatient programs require high motivation for change and self-transportation. In this scenario, people are billed hourly for each of their therapy sessions. This hourly rate can be as much as a couple hundred dollars, but is only charged for each hour long weekly session.

The Average Cost Of Oxycontin Rehab

One study conducted by Open Minds Consulting, an independent research firm, found that the average price for an inpatient rehab program was around $20,000 in the early 2010’s. The average price for an outpatient rehab program in the United States was under $7,000. Additionally, The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) conducted a study and found that the average cost of residential inpatient treatment per admission was $3,000. The average cost of outpatient rehab without methadone was $1,250 and the average cost of outpatient treatment with methadone was $6,050.

These prices may seem intimidating, but keep in mind that there are ways to help cover the average cost of Oxycontin rehab. For instance, health insurance companies will often cover part of this expense, and some rehab centers offer sliding scale fees based on your income. Additionally, addiction treatment vouchers can offset the price of treatment. Most people’s out of pocket costs are typically much lower than the actual cost of the program.

What Is Oxycontin Rehab Like?

Oxycontin rehab is like a combination of continuing education classes, therapy, and summer camp. Whether or not you sleep in a rehab facility depends on the intensity of treatment that you choose. The two main types of OxyContin rehab are: inpatient or outpatient rehab centers.

1. Inpatient Oxycontin rehab – Inpatient rehab involves residing in a rehab facility during the course of treatment. During this time, people recovering from Oxycontin addiction are required to attend frequent therapy and counseling sessions, sometimes daily. Rehab programs for Oxycontin can be demanding and very structured, but are useful when you need to remove yourself from a negative environment. Traditional inpatient addiction treatment typically last about a month, but intensive inpatient rehab can last as long as a year.

2. Outpatient Oxycontin rehab – Outpatient addiction treatment does not typically require any time in an addiction rehab facility. Instead, you’ll be required to attend daily or weekly therapy and counseling sessions. Emphasis is on group work. Intense outpatient rehab requires attendance for at least 9 hours or more per week. Patients who attend outpatient rehab programs for OxyContin addiction need a strong support system in place and have high motivation to complete the program in order to be successful.

OxyContin Rehab Payment Options

PAYMENT OPTION 1: Employer Assistance Programs (EAP). Discover if your company offers help for employers with disabilities. Some employers choose to help workers overcome their addictions, by giving them a paid medical leave and cover some of the treatment costs. Information about this type of program should be in your employee handbook or available from the human resources department.

PAYMENT OPTION 2: Government funded programs. SAMHSA issues congressional grant money each year to offset the cost of addiction treatment across the U.S. To fund a government sponsored program near you, check out the SAMHSA Facility Locator Tool  or call 1-800-662-HELP for more information.

PAYMENT OPTION 3: Non-profit organizations. A handful of non-profit groups may help with addiction treatment, either by providing financial grants or offering free or low-cost addiction treatment. Information about these programs can usually be obtained through local churches, hospitals, or rehabilitation facilities.

PAYMENT OPTION 4: Sliding scale fees. Individuals with low to middle incomes may also qualify for reduced cost addiction treatment due to the sliding scale fees that many rehab facilities offer. With sliding scale fees, your cost is based on income, and you’ll pay only what you can reasonably afford for addiction treatment. Ask your local rehab centers if they offer sliding scale fees and if you might qualify.

PAYMENT OPTION 5: Self-fundraising. Launch a fundraising campaign. Websites such as indiegogo and gofundme can help you raise the money you need for rehab by other people’s donations. All you need to do is register and open a profile where you describe what you need the money for. Ask your friends to help you spread the word so that more people can donate.
