    Frequently Asked Questions

    • Do I need to enter a substance abuse rehabilitation program?

    Drug and alcohol addiction can impair productive functioning within an individual’s family, workplace, and the broader society. If substance abuse is negatively affecting core spheres of life, such as your personal relationships, work performance, finances, and physical and physical health, a rehabilitation program can be an essential step towards a well-balanced, sober life and a sustained recovery.

    To determine your risk of being susceptible to a substance use disorder, consider taking answering the questions in the Tobacco, Alcohol, Prescription Medication, and Other Substance Use (TAPS) Tool, a comprehensive online assessment for substance misuse from the National Institute on Drug Abuse.

    • How long will a substance abuse rehabilitation program last?

    The length of time an individual spends in a rehabilitation program can vary, depending on the specific program and the unique needs of the individual. Generally speaking, rehabilitation programs can last from 28 days to over a year.

    According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, most addicted individuals require at least three months of substance abuse treatment to significantly reduce or halt their drug use, and the best outcomes result from long-term treatment programs.

    Length of stay depends on factors such as the need for detoxification services, insurance coverage or ability to self-pay, and the presence of co-occurring medical or mental health issues.

    • How does a substance rehabilitation program work?

    Substance abuse rehabilitation programs begin with a comprehensive assessment. The most effective treatments evaluate drug abuse in an integrative manner, factoring in medical, psychological, social, vocational, and legal issues.

    After an initial assessment, the second stage of rehabilitation may focus on a detoxification period that removes the offending substance’s toxins from the body. The rehabilitation process then proceeds with treating the underlying cause of the addiction.

    Behavioral therapies are a cornerstone of this process, which typically involves addressing a patient’s motivation to change, providing incentives for abstinence, and replacing drug-using thoughts and behaviors with more constructive ones.

    After a patient has gained the tools in therapy to overcome the addiction, rehabilitation evolves into an extended aftercare situation to reinforce and build on the progress made during treatment. Aftercare may involve accountability programs, counseling, support groups, sober living homes, and more.

    You can find more detailed information on the rehabilitation process here.

    • How much will a rehabilitation program cost?

    A substance abuse rehabilitation program can range from free of charge to more than $25,000. Many programs commonly accept private health insurance, which can substantially reduce the cost of treatment. Some federal and state agency substance abuse rehabilitation programs can cost little to nothing.

    Outpatient programs typically cost less than inpatient treatment depending on the specifics of the program, such as the duration, location, and services provided. Outpatient programs can range from $100 to $500 per session, while inpatient treatment can cost between $200 to $900 per day.

    The cost of inpatient treatment reflects the advanced level of medical and psychological services that are provided to patients, including but not limited to 24/7 support, sober housing, and meals throughout the program stay.

    • How can I find a substance abuse rehabilitation program near me?

    The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) Behavioral Health Treatment Services Locator can be used to find high-quality substance abuse rehabilitation centers near you.
