How Much Does Detox Cost?
Detoxification can be one of the most expensive procedures in the drug rehab and treatment field. The reason for this is generally because there are more medical personnel involved and there are also medications often administered, therefore their operating costs are much higher.
We have found that costs for detox centers can vary depending on the setting, location and level of service offered and may range from as low as $400 per day to more than $2,000 per day. The average cost for a detox program is typically between $800 and $1,200 per day, lasting roughly 5-10 days. The amount of time depends on the amounts and types of drugs being used as well as how a person's body has interacted with them in the past. This is why a thorough medical and drug history must be obtained before starting the detox process.
Since it is more of a medical setting insurance companies pay for this type of service more often than residential rehab centers. As always with insurance, the chosen facility may be out of network, which could require paying for the service up front and then filing for reimbursement from the insurance company.
