When Vicodin addiction has led to uncontrolled use, inpatient Vicodin addiction treatment is often necessary in the form of residential rehab. One of the primary concerns of those considering residential Vicodin treatment generally involves the treatment costs incurred during inpatient care. However, for the vast majority of individuals, affordable avenues exist that can help drastically reduce – or possibly, even completely eliminate – the costs of Vicodin addiction treatment, even in an inpatient setting.
Myths About Vicodin Addiction Treatment Costs
Often, reluctance to enroll in Vicodin addiction treatment programs stems from misinformation surrounding the costs of residential drug rehabilitation programs. Here are a few myths about the cost of Vicodin addiction inpatient treatment – along with the straight facts about prescription drug residential care.
- “Insurance doesn’t cover rehab.”
In actuality, the vast majority of residential prescription drug addiction recovery programs are partially or entirely covered by private insurance. Public insurance options – such as Medicaid and Medicare – also have provisions for inpatient drug addiction rehab. Call your insurance provider and ask about coverage for the rehab center of your selection.
- “I can’t afford rehab after relapse.”
While in some cases, insurance companies may have “lifetime limits” that prevent endless repeat trips to inpatient rehab facilities, for the most part, policies will allow for reentry into rehab after relapse occurs. In other cases, treatment for an addiction to a different substance is enough to warrant full coverage of inpatient rehabilitation stays, as well.
- “Vicodin addiction treatment costs must be paid up front.”
Actually, the vast majority of residential treatment programs will allow patients to make installment payments, in order to ease the financial burden of inpatient rehabilitation. Other residential programs offer the equivalent of low-interest loans in order to facilitate expedient attendance at an inpatient Vicodin rehabilitation facility while reducing the financial impact of attendance.
- “Prescription drug addiction rehab costs are fixed.”
In many cases, prescription drug addiction rehab programs will offer sliding scale fees to help accommodate those of lower income levels.
- “I could never ask my family for money for rehab.”
One of the best investments you or a family member will make in the course of your life is the money that pays for a professional drug rehabilitation program. Studies have shown that individuals who successfully complete rehab benefit from higher earning potential in the long run – not to mention lowered health care costs, legal fees and other personal expenses. Despite the frequent occurrence of broken relationships in the wake of drug addiction, the vast majority of patients’ families will help them secure the money for rehabilitation.
