    Man Getting Cash Out Of His Wallet-Will I Need Money During Drug & Alcohol Rehab?

    If you begin your road to addiction recovery by attending a drug rehab facility, you should bring a small amount of cash with you

    How Much Money Should You Bring To Rehab?

    Bringing $80-$100 in smaller bills can allow you to purchase items from the vending machine. Additionally, you can use the money at a nearby store if you forget to bring other necessities to the addiction treatment center.

    Check with your desired rehab center to determine exactly how much money you may be required to bring with you. 

    How Can I Pay For The Cost Of Treatment At A Rehab Center?

    There are several ways for you to pay for the cost of rehab.

    Those With Insurance Coverage

    If you have a health insurance plan, reach out to your insurance company by calling the phone number on your card. When you speak with an insurance provider, they can help you determine the type of substance abuse treatment program you qualify for.

    Your insurance plan may cover inpatient or outpatient treatment options. If so, your treatment provider may help determine which treatment services can best suit your needs.

    Those In Need Of Financial Assistance

    If you do not have health insurance or your insurance does not cover substance use disorder treatment, there are other payment options to consider such as:

    Types Of Alcohol & Drug Addiction Treatment

    There are numerous forms of treatment for those suffering from drug or alcohol addiction. A healthcare professional may recommend a certain type of treatment for you or your loved one depending on the severity of drug abuse.


    The beginning stages of a rehab program may include medical detoxification. Detox is a process in which dangerous chemicals are expelled from the body.

    These harmful toxins were likely brought on by drug use. Before beginning an addiction treatment program, your body must be replenished. While sometimes withdrawal symptoms can occur during detox, healthcare workers will monitor you throughout the process.

    Inpatient Treatment

    At an inpatient rehab center, you have 24/7 access to medical professionals as well as a bed to sleep in and a designated schedule accommodated to suit your needs.

    Inpatient programs may consist of therapy options such as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) and group therapy. Additionally, inpatient treatment facilities provide a peaceful yet structured environment to help you focus on sobriety and your path to recovery.

    Outpatient Treatment

    At an outpatient rehab program, you will be required to visit the facility at designated times throughout the week. An outpatient program relies on services provided by the treatment center as well as assistance from home or family members.

    Outpatient programs offer options such as the intensive outpatient program (IOP) and the partial hospitalization program (PHP).

    Aftercare Options

    To further commit to recovery, consider participating in aftercare resources such as support groups or 12-step programs. Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) may be options for you to consider.
