Price of Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Bridgeport, CT

The cost of substance use disorder treatment can vary depending on the programs you select. Factors that affect cost include:

Inpatient programs tend to have higher costs. You may begin by detoxifying at a medical facility, which will add to the overall cost of care. After that, you go to a residential facility for behavioral therapy. The cost of residential rehab includes counseling, housing, and meals.

Outpatient programs can be significantly less expensive than inpatient rehab. Your cost covers therapy sessions, but because you don’t live on-site, you don’t have the added expenses of room and board in a facility. However, you will be fully responsible for managing your own housing, food, and medical care.

If you have insurance, your insurance plan will cover some of the cost of care which reduces your out-of-pocket expenses. All insurance plans must include coverage for rehab. Two federal laws—the Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Act—mandate that private insurance, employer-sponsored insurance, Medicaid, Medicare, and military insurance plans include coverage for drug and alcohol addiction treatment.

It is important to check with rehab facilities to find out which insurance plans they accept. Private insurance companies typically partner with a network of preferred providers, so your insurance may cover more of your costs if you go to one of these in-network facilities. If you choose a facility out of that network, your out-of-pocket costs may be higher.
