Expert Insights

Idaho has received millions ($26 million to be precise!) in opioid settlements, yet, I’m struggling to see how that money is helping people get into addiction treatment. The money is supposed to be going into state and local treatment programs, but I recently read that 27 percent of Idaho residents who needed treatment couldn’t get it. Worse, Idaho’s Department of Health and Welfare lists just 8 inpatient treatment centers, and only 3 opioid treatment programs on their SUD resources map! In a state with higher than the national average rate of drug addiction, which increased during the pandemic, the state needs to do more to serve its residents.

How Much Does Drug Rehab in Idaho Cost?

Idaho is ranked 1st nationwide in terms of addiction treatment affordability, with an average cost of addiction treatment of $42,195

  • Medical detox is the most expensive, with an average cost of $104,026
  • Inpatient rehab in Idaho costs an average of $37,234
  • Outpatient rehab in Idaho costs and average of $6,187
  • Outpatient methadone treatment is the most affordable, with an average cost of $5,497

Your costs for addiction treatment will depend on a lot of factors. Your out-of-pocket costs will be determined based on several criteria, including:

Whether you choose an inpatient or outpatient program

The type of amenities and features

The duration of your treatment

If the facility takes your insurance plan

Where the facility is located

Choosing inpatient or residential rehab will come with higher costs. You will live in the facility for the entire duration of your care. Your costs will include housing, meals, therapy, and any medical care you need. If you choose a facility with luxury add-ons, your costs will go up.

If cost is a barrier to getting care, you can find free, low-cost, or sliding-scale programs in Idaho. You can ask a treatment center if it has structured payment plans. This will allow you to spread payments out over time. Some facilities have a sliding scale for costs and set your expenses based on your income level.

How to Pay for Rehab in Idaho

As of 2020, there were over 120 rehab facilities across the state of Idaho. These facilities accept several payment methods. Of those facilities, the following numbers reflect how many accept their respective payment methods:

Does Insurance Cover Rehab Center Costs?

Insurance plans have to cover addiction treatment. There are two laws that require insurance coverage for care: the Affordable Care Act and the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Act. This extends all types of insurance, including private insurance, insurance through an employer, Medicaid, Medicare, and military insurance plans.

Insurance companies often have specific networks of healthcare facilities that they work with, including addiction treatment centers. You will have higher out-of-pocket costs at facilities that aren’t part of your insurance company’s network. You can ask your insurance company or specific drug and alcohol rehabs in Idaho whether it is part of your insurance network.

Private Insurance

All private insurance plans cover addiction treatment. Your total coverage and number of participating facilities in your plan’s network will vary. Ask your insurance provider for the details of your coverage. Make sure you understand:

  • What your deductible amount will be
  • If you have co-pays
  • What types of care the plan covers
  • The names of facilities in your insurance company’s network
  • What, if any, exclusions apply


Medicaid is a state-federal partnership to provide health insurance to low-income adults and children, people with certain disabilities, and women who are pregnant. In Idaho, residents who make 138% of the federal poverty level or less are eligible for Medicaid coverage.3


Medicare is an insurance plan offered by the federal government for people over the age of 65 and certain people with disabilities or health conditions.

Idaho Alcohol and Drug Use Statistics

Here are some relevant drug and alcohol abuse statistics for Idaho residents:1,2

Drug and Alcohol Laws in Idaho

Possession of Marijuana and Other Drugs

Marijuana is not legal in Idaho.7 Possession of under 3 oz is a misdemeanor that carries a penalty of up to 1-year incarceration, up to a $1,000 fine, or both. Possession of other drugs is considered a felony with a penalty of up to 7 years in jail and up to $15,000 in fines.8

Good Samaritan Law

Idaho has a Good Samaritan law that will protect you from prosecution if you call for assistance during an overdose.9


Idaho has a naloxone standing order at pharmacies so that residents can access naloxone (Narcan), the life-saving opioid overdose medication, without a prescription.10 Medicaid recipients can get naloxone free from participating pharmacies.

Treatment Courts

There are treatment courts in Idaho that arrange for rehab in lieu of jail time, which can help non-violent offenders get the much-needed addiction care they need to achieve sobriety.11

Addiction Treatment Settings

Medical detox refers to a set of interventions designed to alleviate painful and dangerous withdrawal symptoms, reduce cravings, provide medical care and supervision, and help you achieve a medically-stable, substance-free state. Detox is not a substitute for addiction treatment; rather, it is the first step of the recovery process.

Inpatient rehabilitation is where you live at the facility during care. You spend all your time at the facility or on supervised outings. You may be there for anywhere from 30-90 days. Some programs are longer.

Partial hospitalization programs (PHPs), also known as day treatment programs, are intensive and involve several hours of care per day, seven days per week.

Intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) are a step down from PHPs. You attend treatment for a few hours per day, three to five days a week.

Standard outpatient is the most flexible option. You attend therapy for a couple of hours each session, for one to two days per week.

Aftercare is the ongoing support that will help you maintain your sobriety after you complete your rehabilitation program. It can come in the form of sober-living homes, therapy or counseling, 12-step groups, and non-12-step groups.

Specialized Drug Rehabs in Idaho

Choosing a facility depends on your needs as well as your personal preferences. If you have particular requirements for your program or prefer certain therapies or amenities, you should find drug rehab centers in Idaho that include all of those services.

You should also make sure that the facility or detox center is properly licensed and accredited. Look into its therapeutic methods to be certain that they are evidence-based and effective.


Holistic rehab centers use a combination of conventional and alternative methods to address emotional, physical, and spiritual health. Holistic centers might include access to acupuncture, massage, aromatherapy, dietary and nutrition plans, hypnotherapy, and meditation. 

Christian and Faith-Based

If you want to integrate your faith practices into your treatment, you might want a faith-based center. These programs combine spiritual guidance and support with evidence-based therapy.


Luxury rehab is a choice for people who have the ability to pay much higher costs for care. Luxury facilities offer a higher level of comfort and privacy than standard treatment centers. They may have private bedrooms, gourmet meals, spas, massages, and more attractive decor, some even resembling a resort.


If you are a high-level decision-maker in your company and you can’t leave your work responsibilities behind during treatment, there are executive Idaho drug rehabs available. These programs allow greater access to phones and computers than most programs. 

Medication-Assisted Treatment

Medication-assisted treatment (MAT) is the use of medications and counseling to provide a whole-person approach to treating opioid and alcohol addiction. These medications differ depending on your particular addiction as well as your motivation to recover and your medical needs.

Methadone is an FDA-approved medication for the treatment of opioid use disorder. Methadone is chemically similar to other opioid drugs, but it doesn’t cause a euphoric feeling after taking it. It can satisfy physical cravings for opioids without the corresponding high. 

Suboxone is a combination of two drugs called naloxone and buprenorphine. Naloxone is an opioid antagonist that blocks the effects of opioids. Buprenorphine is a partial opioid agonist, which means it can replace opioids and reduce withdrawal symptoms. 

Naltrexone can be used alone to treat opioid addiction and alcohol addiction. It prevents the high from using opioids or alcohol, which makes them less appealing to use. You can receive a prescription from your physician.

Antabuse (Disulfiram) is a medication that causes unpleasant sensations when you consume alcohol. Having an alcoholic drink while taking the Antabuse can cause nausea, vomiting, and skin flushing. The overall effect is to make abusing alcohol a negative experience.

Acamprosate is a drug that reduces cravings for alcohol.6 Without the desire to drink, it’s easier to refrain from abusing alcohol. This is a long-term treatment, and the effects disappear if you stop taking it.
