How Much Does Rehab Cost?
The cost of substance abuse treatment varies greatly from rehab to rehab, depending on a number of factors, so there is no one set price. Some elements that can impact the cost of rehab include the length of stay, the type of treatment (inpatient vs. outpatient), amenities and services offered, and your individual insurance plan.
