Cost of Rehab in Philadelphia

Not treating addiction can be costly to your health, relationships, and ability to work. But what does rehab cost?

It depends on a few things:

Type of facility: Outpatient treatment is less expensive than inpatient care.

Size of the treatment facility: Large rehabs typically cost less than smaller rehabs.

Types of treatments offered: Numerous treatment options can increase the cost of rehab.

Length of the program The length of your inpatient stay can influence the price.

Amenities at the facility: Perks like a gym, pool, spa, massage therapy, and dieticians boost the cost.

For inpatient rehab centers, a 30-day stay costs between $14,000 and $27,000 and includes room and board. Outpatient treatments range from $3,000 to $10,000 for 30 days of treatment.

Pennsylvania has 604 rehab facilities as of March 31, 2020. They vary from private and for-profit to entirely free. The following figures reflect the number of facilities who offer the respective payment options:1

As you can see, most rehab facilities accept either private insurance or Medicaid. It is essential to verify the types of payments or insurance the facility accepts. By choosing an in-network facility that has an agreement with your insurance provider, you will have fewer out-of-pocket expenses. If you have private insurance, you may have more access to rehab treatment, as some facilities cap the number of available Medicaid beds depending on state law.13

Since 2015, as part of the ACA, Pennsylvania expanded its Medicaid insurance to allow those who did not previously qualify to be insured. As of May 2021, more than 3 million Pennsylvanians were covered with Medicaid insurance.6 The program allows you to choose among more than 10 insurance plans.

Low-Cost and Free Rehabs in Philadelphia

If you are underinsured, uninsured, and unable to pay for treatment, the Philadelphia Single County Authority (SCA) assists you with federal, state, and city funding for alcohol and drug rehab in Philadelphia, PA, based on your financial eligibility.

Within the city, dozens of rehab facilities work with the Philadelphia SCA.

How Do I Pay for Addiction Treatment in Philadelphia?

If you are uninsured and do not qualify for free rehab or free rehab facilities are full, you still have options.

Choose a Program That Offers Payment Plans

Set up a payment schedule that fits your budget and satisfies the rehab facility.

Apply for a Rehab Scholarship

Scholarships can partially or fully cover treatment costs for those who qualify. For help finding scholarships, check the Help.org page on Scholarships for Drug and Alcohol Rehab.

If you are interested in finding a scholarship or grant, you can also ask the rehab facility if they offer scholarships. Corporations, churches, and non-profit organizations also offer scholarships.

Be sure to look at the 10,000 Beds scholarship. A non-profit organization funds it and is on a mission to help those who meet all these criteria:

Filling out the application is simple and could drastically reduce your out-of-pocket expenses.

Even those with private insurance, Medicaid, or Medicare can apply for scholarships and qualify. Scholarship funds can be used for both inpatient and outpatient rehab facilities.

Find a Sliding-Scale Rehab Program

There are Philadelphia drug rehabs with fees that are adjusted based on your ability to pay. Based on your finances, a sliding-scale payment plan allows you to move forward with treatment while making affordable, regular payments.

Please call 800-926-9037 (Info iconWho Answers?) to speak to a treatment specialist about your options.

Inpatient vs. Outpatient Rehab in Philadelphia

Inpatient rehab also is called hospital or residential treatment. During an inpatient stay, you will devote most of your day to treating your addiction with counseling, group sessions, and other types of therapy.

Outpatient or community-based rehab is provided outside of a hospital or medical facility. Three levels of treatment exist for outpatient rehab:

Benefits of Inpatient Addiction Treatment

You will live in your rehab facility for the length of your inpatient treatment, typically from 30 to 90 days. Benefits of inpatient or residential rehab include:14, 15

Benefits of Outpatient Addiction Treatment

With outpatient addiction treatment, you live at home. Benefits include:

Outpatient care entails that you are empowered and confident you will abstain from drugs or alcohol while being exposed to them.

Types of Alcohol Rehab and Drug Rehab in Philadelphia

Whatever your circumstances, a facility for drug and alcohol rehab in Philadelphia is likely to fit your personal and financial needs, align with your schedule, and support you in a way that works best for you.

Holistic Rehab

Holistic rehab includes alternative medications and treatment aimed at helping the whole person recover from addiction. Therapies include:

Christian and Faith-Based Rehab

Christian and faith-based rehab programs approach treatment with the help of prayer groups, devotional time, meditation, mindfulness, and reflecting on religious teachings. Faith-based treatment is geared toward helping you accept the past, gain inner strength, and achieve recovery.

Luxury Rehab

Luxury rehabs allow you to fully unwind in a beautiful setting. Each facility is unique, but amenities you might expect include massage therapy, spa treatments, equine therapy, nutritional guidance, a pool, a gym, and privacy.

Executive Rehab

Executive rehab allows you to continue working while getting the alcohol and drug treatment you need. Many inpatient executive rehab facilities have upscale amenities, including a private workspace for you to use. Outpatient executive rehab specializes in treating working professionals and provides after-work sessions.

Dual-Diagnosis Rehab

According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, 45% of those addicted to alcohol or drugs also have a mental health diagnosis. In the US in 2020, 17 million adults had both a mental health disorder and a substance use disorder.7

If you rely on alcohol or drugs to alleviate your mental health symptoms—such as depression or anxiety—you should seek dual-diagnosis treatment.

A dual-diagnosis rehab gives you access to mental health and addiction specialists. The multidisciplinary treatment approach, aimed at treating both addiction and mental health disorders, helps you achieve lasting recovery.

Depression and Addiction

People who suffer from depression are likelier to be addicted to drugs or alcohol. More than 30% of people with major depression have an alcohol or drug addiction.8 Alcohol is a depressant, so adding it to a depressive disorder is dangerous, even if common.

If you are addicted to drugs or alcohol and suffer from depression, call 800-926-9037 (Info iconWho Answers?) to speak to one of our specialists about a dual diagnosis rehab near you.

Anxiety and Addiction

An estimated 19% of people suffer from a generalized anxiety disorder.9 You can become addicted to prescribed benzodiazepines (e.g., Valium, Ativan, and Klonopin) used to treat anxiety. If you have anxiety and self-medicate with benzos or alcohol, seek treatment at a dual-diagnosis rehab.

PTSD and Addiction

Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) occurs when you are personally traumatized or witness someone else being traumatized. You are likelier to develop PTSD if you feel like the situation was out of your control.

A nationwide study showed 46% of people with full PTSD have substance use disorder, mostly with alcohol.10 The rate of alcohol or substance use disorder among US combat military veterans returning from Afghanistan or Iraq was even higher, at 64%.12

Types of Addiction Therapy Used in Rehab

In addition to medications, various therapies may help you achieve lasting recovery.

Cognitive Behavioral Therap: Cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT) is a form of psychotherapy. CBT helps you replace your negative thoughts with realistic thoughts, improved problem-solving skills, coping mechanisms, and self-confidence. CBT treatment works well for alcohol and drug addiction, depression, and anxiety.

Dialectical Behavior Therapy: Dialectical behavior therapy (DBT) combines CBT, mindfulness, acceptance, and changing negative behaviors. DBT is particularly useful if you have a dual diagnosis of borderline personality disorder (severe mood swings, thoughts of suicide, impulsive and risky behavior) and addiction.

Motivational Enhancement Therapy: If you are hesitant to get help for drug or alcohol addiction, a counselor may use motivational enhancement therapy (MET) to convince you to get help for your addiction. MET works best with alcohol and marijuana use.

Contingency Management: Contingency management (CM) is a type of behavior therapy that rewards you for positive steps in your recovery. You may be rewarded for a negative drug screen or attending group therapy sessions, for example.

Group Therapy: This form of psychotherapy allows a small group of people to share their addictions stories, struggles, and victories with each other and a therapist who leads the session. Group therapy may also include CBT. Along with helping with addiction, group therapy is effective for anxiety, depression, and PTSD.

Family Therapy: Family therapy helps you and your family communicate better, solve problems, manage conflicts successfully, and support each other.
