How Much Does It Cost to Go to Rehab in West Palm Beach, FL?

Each patient is unique, and each treatment plan is customized to each individual. Thus, costs for rehab in West Palm Beach vary based on several factors such as:

  • Level of care (i.e., inpatient, outpatient, partial hospitalization program, intensive outpatient program, etc.).
  • Chosen facility pricing and available services and amenities.
  • Treatment duration.
  • Payment type (e.g., health insurance, out-of-pocket, sliding-fee scales, financing, etc.).

For those with health insurance, coverage varies by carrier and by individual plan. So the best way to determine exactly how much you’ll pay for rehab is to verify your benefits. Inquire with your insurance company or contact American Addiction Centers at to determine your benefits for use at one of its facilities.

If you don’t have insurance, however, there are other ways to pay for treatment as described below. Admissions navigators at American Addiction Centers (AAC) can not only answer your confidential questions about treatment and verify your insurance but also discuss additional payment options that may be available to you.

The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) ensure that health insurance companies provide coverage for mental health and substance abuse benefits and prohibit them from enforcing less satisfactory benefit limitations than those of other medical benefits.6,7 That said, each plan is unique, and coverage for substance use disorders varies.

Types of Addiction Treatment in West Palm Beach, FL

Since everyone has different needs, multiple types of care are available in West Palm Beach and elsewhere. Healthcare and addiction professionals can work with you to determine the level of care that best fits your needs, but treatment options include:8

  • Detox. Medically assisted detox provides a space to safely withdraw from substances under medical supervision. Many people start treatment in detox before transitioning to another level of care, and detox is offered in both inpatient and outpatient formats.
  • Inpatient care. With inpatient rehab, patients live on campus while receiving 24/7 care from medical and addiction professionals. Addiction specialists use multiple therapeutic interventions such as one-on-one therapy, group counseling, and pharmacotherapy to help patients build coping skills and promote long-term recovery.
  • Outpatient treatment. Outpatient programs offer similar care to inpatient rehab, but the patient lives at home and treatment is less intense and less frequent than inpatient programs.
  • Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs). A special type of outpatient treatment, IOPs are more intense than traditional outpatient care and slightly less intense than inpatient care.
  • Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs). PHPs (aka day treatment programs) allow patients to live at home while attending intense treatment. Often referred to as the halfway point between outpatient and inpatient facilities, PHPs require patients to attend several hours of treatment multiple days per week.
  • Aftercare and sober living. Many addiction professionals recommend that patients participate in some form of aftercare following outpatient or inpatient care. This might include ongoing therapy, sober living, 12-Step programs, etc.

When it comes to levels of care, patients have a host of options in West Palm Beach rehabs. For example, within 50 miles of the city center, the following care types are offered by the respective number of facilities.1

  • Sliding fee scales. Rehabs will sometimes adjust the cost of treatment based on what you can afford.
  • Local, state, or federal funding. Some organizations such as the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) provide grants and scholarships to cover the cost of addiction care for those who qualify. Additional state-funded treatment options may also be available.
