What if My Insurance Does Not Cover the Cost of Rehab?
There are some cases where insurance will not cover the cost of rehab. While these cases are very few, it does come up on occasion. When it comes to paying for rehab services there are many financing options available. This option will offer a way to pay for your care.
While taking on debt may not seem like something that you want or should do, it is important to look at rehab as an investment in yourself. Rehab will pay off over time as you will lead a more productive life once you have overcome your addiction.
How Much is Addiction Costing You?
When it comes down to it, the cost of rehab is not nearly as much as the cost of drug or alcohol addiction. Consider how much money you are currently spending on the drugs of your choice. Even though alcohol is relatively cheap in terms of costs, spending money on alcohol every day adds up. Other drugs are even more expensive and feeding your habit is costing you more than just the price of your drug of choice.
Drug and alcohol users are also more likely to switch jobs often or skip work than a sober individual. This has a negative impact on your income as switching jobs often entails starting at the bottom and making a lower wage than you would by staying at a job for a longer period of time. Skipping work means that you are not making as much money as you could be and could end up costing you your job. When you combine the cost of drugs, work issues, health issues, and legal issues it is easy to see that drug or alcohol addiction can cost you a lot more than the average price for rehab.
To consider the cost of addiction, an alcoholic who drinks a twelve pack each day for a year will spend more than $3000. This is if they only drink a 12 pack and nothing else each day. Some severe alcoholics drink more than this and spend much more. This does not include the amount that is spent on possible health issues and legal issues that arise.
There are some heroin users who have stated they have spent tens of thousands of dollars supporting their addiction.
The financial costs for addiction do not include the personal costs that addiction also causes. Addiction also affects personal relationships with friends and families, which results in a less meaningful life.
