Rehab is a structured program designed to help people struggling with addiction. Addiction, also known as Substance Use Disorders (SUDs), is a complex problem, and requires a wide array of treatment programs to successfully treat them. Rehab programs help people not only develop habits to lead a sober, healthy life, while also seeking to address the underlying issues that led to addiction in the first place.
Assigning a single dollar figure as the cost of rehab is not possible as there are various factors that impact each individuals cost for seeking treatment in an addiction rehab program. These variables include insurance, the type of care needed, the length and intensity of care, any associated medications, and many others.

Rehab seeks to treat not only the addiction itself, but also the underlying factors that led to addiction. Addiction rehab can be broken down into three steps:
- Detox – The beginning phase of rehab is to rid the body of the chemical it is addicted to. Without this taking place, rehabilitation is impossible.
- Therapy – Following detoxification, successful rehabilitation involves addressing the behavioral and psychological factors that lead to addiction. The goal is to recognize and address the actual causes of addiction, while also teaching addicts to identify triggers and high-risk behaviors that can lead to relapse.
- Aftercare – Addiction is an omnipresent part of the life of a recovering addict, even after substance use has stopped. Aftercare programs seek to develop healthy, sober life habits and provide the necessary support, through ongoing therapy, support groups, or sober living arrangements, to prevent relapse.
Addiction is a chronic condition, and while it can be successfully managed and treated, research shows that it can not be cured. Rehabilitation is an ongoing process that has to be managed for the rest of a person’s life. Hard work and dedication are required to successfully manage addiction and learn how to navigate through every day life without the substance or substances.
While it is obviously not preferred, relapses do happen and should not be viewed as a failure, rather as an obstacle to overcome and part of the process of a complete recovery. While some people will complete an addiction rehab program and never relapse, studies show that many people do relapse at least once. If a relapse does occur, it is best to be honest about why and seek help addressing the problem rather than feeling defeated and falling back into substance use.
