What Determines the Cost of Drug Rehab?



According to the National Survey on Drug Use and Health, the second most common reason that people did not receive substance abuse treatment, despite wanting or needing it, is a lack of financial resources or a lack of health insurance.

Although there are support programs that can be offered at all budget levels, the truth is that some individuals aren’t able to afford the types of services they truly need to support recovery.  Below are some of the main factors that can affect the cost of attending various support programs.

What services are offered and how intensive they are

How long the services are utilized

The quality of the staff and the number of staff vs. clients

The local economy can influence the average cost of a facility

Receiving government funding vs. private funding can affect all of the factors listed above

The Cost of Drug Rehab Should Not Get in the Way of Treatment

PDAP believes that money should not be a barrier to receiving the level of support needed to overcome the battle against substance abuse, especially for teens and adolescents.   This is why PDAP has offered their support group and peer program services at no cost to its members for over 45 years, which has enabled PDAP to positively impact over 1,000,000 lives since inception.  Counseling services, added more recently, are available at a very generous sliding scale based upon family income. Over the years, PDAP has consistently provided top-level staff and facilities equipped with the resources and amenities needed for their members to overcome the effects of drug and alcohol use.


PDAP has always been primarily funded by the community and has never received any form of government aid.
Thanks to the continued financial support of foundations, businesses and individuals, PDAP has been able to deliver effective and yet low-cost services to its members for over 45 years.
