Expert Insights

While many people hold the belief that people should just abstain from drugs, that isn’t the reality. People do use drugs and addiction is a social problem that isn’t going away, in my opinion. I think we need more harm-reduction approaches to save lives. That’s why I was pleased to hear that Sioux Falls has declassified fentanyl test strips as drug paraphernalia. Given that fentanyl has infiltrated the illicit drug supply, many people taking drugs are unknowingly consuming fentanyl and dying at a rate of over 100 people a year, just in South Dakota. It is common sense to allow these fentanyl test strips: it will save lives and free up law enforcement to tackle other crimes.

Cost of Drug Rehab in Sioux Falls

Sioux FallsThe cost of care at addiction treatment centers can vary. The type of program you choose will affect the cost: inpatient programs are typically more expensive than outpatient. If you go to an inpatient program, you have to pay for housing and food at the facility. In addition, the costs include your counseling, medical care, and any additional activities. The cost of outpatient programs only includes the cost of counseling and therapy. You may be able to continue to work during outpatient treatment, whereas you may face loss of income or job loss while attending inpatient care.

The duration of the program is also a significant factor when estimating costs: longer programs mean covering the cost of rehab for a longer period of time. If you continue to attend aftercare programs, you will continue to have expenses associated with recovery.

The facility you choose can affect the price tag as well. A standard facility will be less expensive, but you may sacrifice privacy and creature comforts. Luxury programs that include specialized treatments or high-end amenities are more expensive. They may offer amenities such as private rooms and gourmet food as part of the costs. Travel expenses also affect overall costs.

Does Insurance Cover Rehab Center Costs?

Whether you have Medicaid, Medicare, or private insurance, your policy coverage will play a role in your final out-of-pocket costs for rehabilitation.

All insurance policies cover some portion of substance abuse treatment, but you may be responsible for co-pays. Your costs will be higher if you go to a facility or program that is not part of your insurance company’s network.

Addiction Treatment Settings

Like many mental health conditions, treatment for substance use disorder is given along a “continuum of care.” This includes early intervention for high-risk situations and concludes with aftercare and lifelong support to help you maintain your sobriety. Though people start “on the path” at any point, the general timeline proceeds as such:9

Early intervention: This period consists of educating and assisting people who are in high-risk situations for substance use disorder.

Medical Detox: Depending on how severe your addiction is, you may need a medical detox. A team of medical professionals can help keep you safe and comfortable while managing your withdrawal symptoms.

Inpatient: Inpatient or residential care involves living and receiving care 24/7 in a psychiatric hospital or residential treatment center.

Outpatient: These programs range from partial hospitalization programs (PHPs) to intensive outpatient programs (IOPs) and standard outpatient treatment. They differ by the amount of time spent in care per day and week.

Aftercare: When you complete your program, you are encouraged to continue the healthy living habits you learned in rehab. An aftercare plan can connect you with supportive communities to continue with sobriety.
