  • The services you receive. Generally, inpatient care—where you receive round-the-clock care, room, and board—costs more than outpatient services.
  • Length of stay. The longer you stay, the more the service costs.
  • The type of facility. Facilities with lots of amenities, such as fitness centers, pools, transportation, and alternative therapies like art or equine, tend to cost more than a standard treatment facility.
  • Insurance coverage. Most rehabilitation programs take insurance, and all private insurers must cover substance use treatment to some degree. However, your out-of-pocket costs will be determined by the details in your specific plan and whether the facility you choose is in or out of network with your insurance provider.

  • Self-pay. If you have the ability to do so, you can pay cash, or use a credit card to pay for treatment.
  • Sliding scale fees. Some facilities can reduce fees based on your financial needs. In these instances, your cost will be determined by your ability to pay.
  • Personal loans. You may ask family or friends for a loan, or apply for one from a bank or institution that provides loans specifically for substance use treatment.

In many cases, you can combine these options to ensure that you can afford the treatment you need.
