Are you wondering if you can afford addiction treatment for yourself or a loved one? If that’s the case, we’re going to tell you how to pay for rehab.
Everything comes at a cost these days and there is nothing costlier than allowing an addiction to continue.
Drugs and alcohol are not cheap. If you are physically and mentally dependent to these narcotic substances, your need to use more and more of it can seriously dent you or your family’s financial situation.
Not only that, your continued alcohol or drug use may even begin to affect your career, which may even lead to unemployment and in today’s financial climate, nobody can afford to be without a job.
While addiction treatment may be costly, the price of allowing you or your loved one’s addiction to flourish is much more expensive. The good news is that there are ways to make treatment affordable and in this article, we going to tell you how.
Before we get to that, let’s find out more about addiction.
What is Addiction?
The US National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) describes addiction as a chronic relapsing brain disease that will cause you to constantly look for and use drugs or alcohol even if you see the damage it’s causing to yourself.
Addiction is a disease similar to other chronic illnesses such as diabetes, hypertension and even asthma. Like these medical conditions, there is no cure available, however, with the right help, there’s no reason why you can’t live happily and successfully again.
The best and safest way to treat any addiction is by admitting yourself into a rehab centre.
Getting into Rehab
You can easily find a rehab centre on the internet right now, but not all of them are good quality. Choosing the right addiction treatment centre to suit your individual needs is very important and goes a long way in helping you achieve long term sobriety.
Here are some of the key qualities of an excellent rehab centre:
- They customise their addiction treatment programs for every patient that’s admitted
- The medical staff at the clinic are qualified and experienced and will also be at your service 24/7
- The clinic offers aftercare programs once your stay in rehab has been completed
- The minimum length of treatment is at least 28 days (4 weeks)

Paying for Rehab
Now that you know how to get good quality addiction treatment, here’s how you can pay for addiction treatment.
Here in South Africa, if you are on a medical aid, it will cover the bulk of the costs of rehab. If you are not one, you will have to pay cash, which will be more expensive.
Raising the funds for treatment is the next best option for you to utilise if you don’t have the money readily available. Speak to family members about your problem and find out if they are willing to contribute to help you get into rehab as a group.
Remember, it’s not always about the money, what’s most important is that you get into rehab as soon as possible. Addiction is a disease capable of destroying your life and also harming the lives of those closest to you.
