Factors that Affect the Cost

The cost of rehab varies, depending on a number of different factors.

  • The type of rehab
  • Where it is (what state)
  • The services offered
  • The length of time you spend in rehab

…each of these factors will affect the final cost of rehab.

The cost of inpatient oxycodone rehab will typically be much higher than the cost of outpatient oxycodone rehab. Why? TInpatient programs typically include the price of intensive treatment, as well as room and board.

Outpatient costs are typically much lower. This is because patients are not required to reside in these facilities. During outpatient programs, you are able to live at home, go to work, and attend to any other responsibilities. However, outpatient rehab also requires participants to attend scheduled daily or weekly therapy and counseling sessions.

Average Costs

A recent study in the early 2010’s by the company called Open Minds Consulting concluded that the average cost of a 28-day inpatient oxycodone treatment program was almost $20K. The average cost of an outpatient addiction rehab program was almost $7K for 10 weeks.However, these numbers account for both luxury and low cost rehabs.

Anyone looking into the cost of  treatment should consider that not everyone pays the full price for this type of treatment. Health insurance and sliding scale fees will often help offset the cost. Furthermore, government funded vouchers may help you access low cost treatment. See your State’s Department of Health and Social Services for more.

Do I Really Need Professional Help?


Addiction is a medical condition, which can be successfully managed by professionals. Medical studies and research show that those who tried recovering from addiction by themselves frequently relapsed and needed longer to break free from their compulsion. And according to NIDA, self-help groups are recommended as a supplement to addiction treatment. Further, according to several studies, drug treatment reduces drug use by 40 to 60 percent.

One risk associated with treating oxycodone addiction on your own are the dangers associated with the withdrawal process. People who detox on their own are at risk of relapse and overdose if they decide to use again. Medically assisted detox makes sure you are hospitalized in a safe, drug-free environment surrounded by professionals who constantly follow your progress and take care of your well being.

But the most important benefit of professional help is the opportunity to work on the psychological part of your addiction. Learning how to change your view of thinking and reprogram your thoughts is something that you can’t achieve on your own. Professional support along the recovery road is one of the most critical elements for success.

Finding A Way To Pay

The cost of treatment should not mean that you have to give up the idea of recovery. Anyone with a long-term addiction usually faces a financial crisis. Still, many people can still find a way to afford treatment.

You might find it useful to pull from a number of different resources in order to cover the cost. We suggest that you check out the following alternatives to gather the money and pay for rehab.

  1. Talk to your insurance company first to find out how much of your treatment costs can be covered. Or, look into federal health insurance and enroll for healthcare through the U.S. government.
  2. Use money from your savings. Rehab will pay off as a long term investment in yourself.
  3. Talk to your relatives about a loan or gift to help you pay for treatment.
  4. Discuss scholarship options with local treatment centers. Or look for a treatment center with sliding scale fees. You can restrict your search in SAMHSA’s treatment finder here.
  5. Raise money for rehab from donations. Indiegogo and GoFundMe are websites that provide the opportunity for people to donate as much money as they like for various purposes including.

What Is Rehab Like?

A reputable addiction treatment program in a rehab is like a combination of school, group work, and summer camp. Both inpatient and outpatient rehab offer patients structure, as they require attendance and following pretty strict guidelines. They help you to re-establish routines and start to socialize again. Even more, rehabs help you explore the inner reasons that compel your drug use.

While some people resist rehab, those that approach the experience with openness can benefit tremendously from suggested therapies. Here’s generally what you can expect from the two main types of rehab:

1. Inpatient rehab is held within a residential setting. In other words, people reside in the rehab facility during their treatment, which can last from a month to a year. Most people who attend inpatient rehab for oxyocodone problems stay from 28-30 days. Others can benefit from a longer stay of at least 90 days. Daily counseling and group therapy sessions are also usually required, and education sessions about the nature of addiction are emphasized.

2. Outpatient rehab does not require residence in a rehabilitation facility. Instead, patients are typically required to attend several weekly therapy and counseling sessions. This allows them to live at home and continue with their careers or school and home responsibilities. Outpatient programs can last anywhere from several months to several years, and are often used as follow-up treatment for inpatient rehab.
