Guest post By: Joan Collins 

When choosing a rehabilitation center when you, or your loved one finally decides to get help, of course you want to make sure you pick the best one for you in every way. One of the most important factors may be cost. Obviously, you do not want to end up with a bill so large that you end up making payments for the rest of your life; however, treatment for an illness as serious as a drug and alcohol problem is extremely important. Therefore, costs should not keep someone from getting help, it should simply be something that should be considered. In order to properly determine the correct rehabilitation center in Florida, you should explore the factors that go into the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

What Is Important To Know:
The cost of rehabilitation should never be the deciding factor preventing you from going to treatment. Your opportunity for getting well is of the utmost importance. Florida offers many different drug rehabilitations at differents costs that make it possible for anyone who needs the help to get it. The costs of the treatment program greatly depends on the style of the program, the type of facility and the level of luxury of its amenities, and if the program is inpatient or outpatient. 

The out-of-pocket costs of treatment are greatly lessened if you are insured; however if you are uninsured, you may have to bite the bullet and pay per week or per day. The upside is, however, most rehabilitation centers will usually make a deal for cash-pay patients. The costs can also depend very much on whether or not your insurance company covers the entire cost of your treatment.

The Cost Of Inpatient Versus Outpatient
There are many different types of drug and alcohol detox and rehabilitation facilities that are offered in Florida that serve many different kinds of individuals from the minimal-cost treatment centers for average person to high class facilities for rich multi-tasking executives, to expensive luxury rehabilitation centers for the high class and famous. What will really make the biggest difference in between which treatment facility you go to will be whether you go to inpatient or outpatient. 

Inpatient will always cost you more than outpatient. Inpatient facilities in Florida sometimes run as little as $500 per week and go all the way up to approximately $100,000 for the stay, with various costs in the middle. Outpatient is a great option that does work well for some individuals. An outpatient stay is about $6,000 for ten weeks, while detox, which is essential in some cases, is about just under $2,000 per day.

The Amount Of Time You Stay
The amount of time you stay in treatment will greatly affect the cost you, and/or your insurance company will pay for your treatment. Many treatment programs offer treatment from twenty-eight days to ninety days long; however, some are longer, up to one-hundred-eighty days or more, and it will also depend greatly on how many days your insurance company determines to be medically necessary. In addition, the length of your stay will also depend on the your personal treatment goals, and your own motivation of the treatment. 

The intensity of your addiction and history of treatment will also play a role in your treatment process; for example, if this is your second or third return to treatment, the health professionals at the facility may advocate for a longer stay for you this time.
Overall, there are many factors that go into deciding which treatment facility to go to for your, or your loved one’s addiction problem. Cost is one that should not keep someone from entering treatment in Florida because there are so many different price options available, even for those who do not have insurance to help cover the costs. Price should never prevent someone from getting the help they need. The varying costs of treatment in Florida make it possible for anyone who needs the help for their addiction to obtain it.
