Cost of Drug and Alcohol Rehab in Joliet

It can be difficult to find the right Joliet drug rehab or alcohol rehab. One of the most frequently asked questions has to do with cost. The cost of a Joliet alcohol rehab or drug rehab will vary between each treatment center, the type of treatment you choose, and the intensity of the program.

Inpatient or Outpatient

Traditionally, an inpatient or residential treatment program will cost more than outpatient services. In an inpatient facility, you need to pay for room and board in addition to your treatment. During outpatient rehab, you live at home and travel to the facility for treatment.

Length of Stay

The longer your treatment program, the more it will cost. This is true for both inpatient and outpatient rehab.

Program Amenities

A program that offers “extras” such as integrative therapies or amenities such as private rooms or a pool will likely cost more than a program that offers more standard options.

This includes federal insurance programs such as Medicaid and Medicare, private insurance, and military insurance. Your policy may cover some or all of your treatment up to a specific limit. You will need to pick a facility that accepts your insurance.
