The Cost of Treatment at Lighthouse
Money makes the world go round. It’s cliche, but it’s, unfortunately, a true statement. Money is also something that addicts often do not have a lot of due to the hold that drugs and alcohol may have taken on their life. The question is how much does Lighthouse Recovery Institute’s rehab program cost and how can we make sure those who really need treatment do not have to battle the barrier of money.
Cost Varies Based on The Level of Care
There are many levels of care involved in addiction treatment and each one brings different facilities, personnel, and medication requirements. Therefore, each level of treatment costs a different amount.
A detox facility may only house a client for a week or two but needs to have proper medical equipment and nurses on staff 24/7 to monitor each client’s status. These facilities also need to have ample space for each of its clients to reasonably eat, sleep, and bathe on a daily bases.
After detox, the client’s may continue lower levels of treatment while living in one of Lighthouse Recovery’s residential facilities. The cost of these other levels of treatment is depending on the number of hours of treatment involved. Partial hospitalization is a full-time program consisting of upward of 30 hours per week. PHP will cost more than lower levels of care such as intensive outpatient or outpatient treatment.
In addition to the level of care, the length of care and housing arrangements may impact the cost of treatment. Those who live in the Lighthouse residences stay anywhere from 30 to 90 days or longer. No 2 clients are the same. Everyone needs a different amount of time to make the necessary breakthroughs and overcome addiction. All clients that live in one of the sober houses also are required to be enrolled and actively participating in partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, or outpatient treatment.
Paying for Treatment at Lighthouse with Insurance
There are multiple ways to pay for treatment. The good news is that most insurance plans provide coverage for addiction treatment. Lighthouse Recovery Institute is in-network with a range of different insurance providers across the country.
Paying for Rehab Without Insurance
If the individual looking for treatment does not have insurance, that does not mean they are out of luck. There are still multiple options to cover how much Lighthouse rehab would cost. This could include self-pay options and payment plans, financing options, and scholarships.
Although it is estimated that tens of millions of people across the United States are struggling with a substance use disorder, only about 10% of these people receive professional addiction treatment each year. There are numerous costs associated with rehab in addition to the actual treatment program. This may include but is not limited to:
- The cost of traveling to the treatment facility (plane ticket, bus, ride share, or gas)
- Possible living arrangements
- Missed paychecks for taking time off work
- Pet care
Regardless of the monetary cost of treatment, there are potentially greater costs when treatment is not received. It is common for individuals struggling from addiction to face a number of costly consequences due to their drinking or drug use such as losing their house, losing their job, getting a DIU, facing a divorce, having their children taken away, and potentially losing mostly thing of all: their life. There is no cost so high that it beyond worth saving your life.
