The Cost of Addiction vs. Cost Of Treatment

It’s true that treatment can cost you thousands of dollars. But consider this: the costs of an addiction are far higher. If you continue using, your costs are not only financial. They include:

  • Broken relationships with loved ones.
  • Legal fines.
  • Medical bills.
  • The cost of buying Vicodin over and over again.
  • Cost of career or work progress.

… and ultimately addiction may cost your life.

What’s The Cost Of Vicodin Rehab?

The cost of rehab can vary greatly, ranging from free to very expensive. Outpatient rehab programs are generally the most economical option, as they does not require you pay for room and board like inpatient rehab programs. Outpatient Vicodin rehab costs, on average, $135-200 per day for a 10 week program. The most common cost range for outpatient treatment is from $2,000 – $7,000 for a few months intensive program. Low-cost and subsidized treatment programs are available.

Residential, inpatient Vicodin rehab costs around $500-700 per day, with an average overall cost around $19,000-$20,000 for a 28 day program. This average accounts for both low cost and luxury rehabs. Individuals who opt for luxury rehab facilities will also pay more, since these programs typically offer spa-like services like therapeutic massages and yoga classes. Additionally, the cost of Vicodin rehab will also be influenced by the duration of a rehab program. Long-term inpatient rehab programs, for instance, cost more than short-term inpatient rehab programs.

Average Cost Of Vicodin Rehab

A study conducted in the early 2010’s by Open Minds Consulting found that the average prices of inpatient and outpatient programs across the country were $19,067 and $6,863, respectively. A previous study conducted by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) between 1996 and 1999 found that the average cost of inpatient rehab per admission was $3,132 and the cost of outpatient rehab per admission was $1,169.

The bottom line?

Rates for addiction treatment change over time.

Ideally, anyone in need of Vicodin rehab can afford treatment. The average cost of Vicodin rehab will often partially be covered by health insurance plans, for instance. Some rehab facilities also reduce the average cost of Vicodin rehab for low-income individuals. Other facilities receive state administered federal grant vouchers for treatment. So, look into the entire range of options if cost is an issue for you.

Paying for Vicodin Rehab

You can sponsor your stay in rehab in a number of ways. These include:

1. Crowdfunding – Hold event fundraisers or raise money through crowd sourced funding websites.

2. Sliding Scale Options – Speak with the rehab directly to see if you can benefit from lower cost admissions. You might also set up a finance plan with rehabs when paying out-of-pocket.

3. InsuranceThe Mental Health Parity Act has made it illegal to refuse mental health reimbursements to those who are covered in group health insurance. Check with your insurer to learn more about your personal coverage in regards to mental health.

4. Employer Programs –  Check in with your HR Department about programs related to mental health treatment through the workplace. More companies are investing in employee mental health and you may qualify for outpatient reimbursement for substance use disorders.


Main Vicodin Rehab Costs

Rehab costs vary depending on specific factors:

  1. Duration of treatment stay. The cost associated with a treatment program is primarily determined by the length of time spent in treatment. Usually, the time you plan to spend in treatment is agreed at the beginning, during the intake session. You will discuss and agree upon how much time you should stay in treatment with rehab. You really want to aim for a good balance so that you are able to achieve and maintain sobriety.
  2. Location. Facilities placed in beautiful surroundings usually charge more than traditional treatment centers. Travel costs are also included into your rehab cost, particularly if the rehab is far from home.
  3. Services provided. Your temporary rehab stay includes certain services such as food, private rooms, assisted therapy, acupuncture, massage, and yoga. Some rehabs extend their list of services and include high quality food, service and outdoor activities. Naturally, every additional comfort raises the price of your stay.
  4. Type of program. Inpatient programs often cost more than outpatient programs since people reside at the facility, and have access to medical care at all times. Further, inpatient costs more for services related to housing, food, and treatment.

What Is Vicodin Rehab Like?

Vicodin rehab helps people get off Vicodin. It’s like a combination of medical facility meets summer camp. At the beginning of rehab, you must first quit using the drug. This is usually accomplished by weaning off Vicodin under a doctor’s supervision in a detox clinic. Medical detox can last for several days. But detox alone will not help you stay off Vicodin for good.

Talk therapy and counseling are the main types of treatment used during Vicodin rehab. Groups, individual therapy, and educational sessions help people break a drug habit by uncovering the root of the problem, often a pattern of thinking or feeling.  Rehabs also aim to treat any underlying mental health disorders that occur: depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, or personality disorders.

Finally, it’s important to know that the two main types of Vicodin rehab – inpatient and outpatient – can be used separately or in conjunction with each other. Inpatient Vicodin rehab requires a person to reside in a rehab facility for the duration of the treatment, which can last anywhere from one month to a year. Outpatient rehab requires that you travel to a rehab facility for treatment. Outpatient addiction treatment for Vicodin can last several weeks to several months, and is usually much less expensive than inpatient Vicodin rehab.
