Addiction treatment can be sourced for free, via the NHS, or it can be paid for through private rehab. Whilst the first may seem like the better option, there are limited benefits to NHS treatment beyond its cost and convenience. Instead, for the latter, there are significant benefits linked to private rehab.

Reasonably, the cost of rehab and what’s included will impact many decisions. It’s understandable that the availability of money is a worrying aspect through both addiction and recovery.

Yet if you can afford to pay for addiction treatment, through savings, the support of family and friends or even insurance policies in some situations, here at Asana Lodge, we encourage you to do so.

Here’s some information on ‘how much does addiction treatment cost?’, to provide an overview on what’s included and how much you’ll be expected to pay. Through our private, specialist treatment centre, we offer affordable programmes, helping our clients receive the most effective and supportive form of care.

Why pay for addiction treatment?

You’ll have two options to decide between when considering addiction treatment. The first will be free via the NHS. The second will carry a financial commitment, known as private drug and alcohol rehab.

Reasonably, if you’re worried about money, and cannot fund either inpatient or outpatient treatment, NHS treatment will be beneficial. Yet if you can afford to pay for addiction treatment, private rehab, tailored to your needs and budget will be the most effective.

NHS treatment is accessible, convenient, and highly compassionate. Yet waiting lists, delays and generic treatment programmes are associated with free treatment, sometimes difficult to manoeuvre through while recovering from addiction.

Private addiction treatment on the other hand will offer immediate access to rehab, consistent care and support throughout the recovery process, and a completely tailored experience. Arguably the most beneficial process to complete whilst treating an addiction, paying for treatment will offer quality, reliability, and efficiency.

The current costs of your addiction, from health and financial angles, can be alleviated by financially committing to private rehab.


How to pay for treatment?

Before we cover ‘how much does addiction treatment cost?’, it’s also important that we share payment options for private rehab.

For the majority of our clients here at Asana Lodge, personal savings are used to cover the cost of rehab. For others, family and friends are known to support the financial commitment of rehab. In some situations, insurance claims are also made throughout rehabilitation. Yet this is on a per-client basis, depending on their needs and policy type.

To run through potential payment options, contact our team at Asana Lodge. Affordability can be expected from our treatment programmes.


How much does addiction treatment cost?

The cost of rehab will be influenced by your needs, the type and level of the programme that you complete, and the price of your chosen rehab clinic. Prices are therefore personal and will vary from person to person.

Factors which will influence the cost of your programme include:

  • The pricing structure of your chosen rehab centre
  • Your location
  • The delivery of treatment that you select, either inpatient treatment or outpatient treatment
  • The length of your treatment programme and recovery journey
  • The type of services that you complete, based on your health, addiction type and personal circumstances
  • The specialism and standards of private rehab. For example, we’re a dual diagnosis rehab and treatment clinic

You can expect a completely tailored service via private rehab, which will be reflected through your own quote. The average short stay programme can range from £4,000 to £10,000, all depending on the length, quality, and delivery of addiction treatment.

For a detox programme, the cost will be lower than selecting a comprehensive rehabilitation process. Yet to treat addiction, addiction treatment and a full recovery process will be the most effective. This will be followed by 12 months of free aftercare.


What’s included in the cost?

Alongside addiction treatment itself, you can expect significant value through private rehab. A wide range of services, resources and sources of support will be available, offering value for money.

Here at Asana Lodge, you can expect to experience:

  • Your own tailored programme
  • The option of residential addiction treatment
  • A medically assisted detoxification process
  • Treatment and therapy services
  • Holistic treatment options, such as NAD+ therapy and art therapy
  • Mental health support and treatment
  • A private space to recover from
  • Support of professionals on a 24/7 basis
  • Tailored guidance from your admission to your discharge
  • Access to rehab facilities
  • Relapse prevention planning support
  • Free aftercare for 12 months

All of the above services will be included within your treatment programme, offered from our facility. Yet the type, level and strength of treatment and support that you’ll require will vary. This will impact how much your addiction treatment process will cost.


Finding affordable rehab

It’s reasonable to gravitate towards NHS treatment for its free services. However, private rehab can now be encountered with affordability in mind.

Many rehab clinics, like ours, work to individual budgets, making sure that treatment and support can be accessed. We can offer affordability by tailoring your programme to include all necessary steps that you’ll require to recover.

Access our support immediately by reaching out. Through the admissions process, we can assess your needs to provide a personal quote.
