While recovery from addiction may be priceless, receiving treatment inside a rehab does cost money.
However, the actual cost of it will vary from rehab to rehab as there are certain factors that play a role in determining what it will be.
The good news is that all of the rehabs that WeDoRecover can offer you accept South African medical aid schemes from all major service providers that cover the bulk of the price of a 4 week stay, making the cost of treatment much more affordable for our patients.
However, should you not have a medical aid, cash will also be accepted and in some cases we can liaise with the clinics to try and provide you with a subsidized rate.
To find out more about the costs of rehab, continue reading below and we’ll provide you with everything you need to know.
What Affects the Costs of Rehab?
As we mentioned above, the actual costs of rehab will be determined by various factors which include:
- The quality of the facility and the services they provide
- The length of your treatment program
- The type of treatment program (Inpatient, outpatient etc.)
- Where the rehab is situated
If a rehab centre offers facilities and services that include top class 24 hour medical care, professional chefs to ensure that their patients are on top of their diets, gym facilities to help them get back on track physically and private rooms to ensure that every recovering addict has their own privacy, it will cost a good sum of money.
The length of the treatment program customised to your needs will also have an effect on the bills. Some addicts might need a 30 day (4 week stay) in rehab, while others might need a 90 day stay in the clinic, however this period will be determined by the nature and severity of the addiction suffered.
The type of treatment program that you receive will also have a say in the cost of rehab. A residential stay inside a facility or inpatient treatment as it is commonly known as will cost more than outpatient treatment, which doesn’t require the patient to actually live in the clinic.
Also, where a rehab is based will also have a knock-on effect on the amount you will have to pay. For example, a clinic situated on the beachfront will cost more than a facility in a suburban area.
Is Rehab Worth the Price?
While the costs of rehab may seem high, it’s important to keep in mind what will the costs be if you allow your own or your loved ones addiction to continue.
Maintaining an addiction is very pricey, the actual costs of drugs are expensive, the lack of productivity at work could lead to job loss which may cause financial strain and the legal costs & medical bills can be humongous.
The cost of addiction on relationships with family members and friends can sometimes be irreparable and the health effects of it can lead to death.
We urge you to not be scared away by the price, because like you, we only want what’s best for you or your loved one.
