Breaking down the ‘daily’ costs of rehab

Seeking help is an important way to avoid relapse

Breaking down the cost of rehab (an example)

Accepting that you or a loved one needs help with a drug- or alcohol-related illness can be incredibly daunting, and facing the number of rehab options and prices can be overwhelming too.

The price breakdown of rehabs are often vague, even unhelpful sometimes. We understand that making the choice to go to rehab is a difficult one.

Why are some rehabs cheaper than others?

Each rehab centre is completely different, and it can be an intimidating process considering which rehab centre and treatment type is best for you.

In order to begin your process of recovery in the best possible way will mean seeking the best professional and medical help.

The price of rehab mostly depends on the quality of the treatment programme and the level of expertise of the consultants that will be helping you to recover.

When considering the best rehab for you, it can be helpful to consider the following:

  • The level of seniority and expertise of the medical staff
  • 24/7 medical care and monitoring
  • Emergency GP on call
  • Available specialist treatments
  • Facilities
  • Aftercare and relapse prevention plans
  • Location

It is important to remember that cheaper rehabs will not provide the same level of care, treatment or staff expertise.

How much rehab will be costing you and your family is an important factor to take into account. But we are here to help.
