Have others been noticing your increased drug and alcohol abuse? Maybe you’ve thought about going to rehab before, but think, “F***-it! I can’t afford rehab anyway.” The truth is, addiction treatment may be more affordable than you think and even cheaper than the cost of your addiction.
The Cost of Addiction
The money you spend on your addiction isn’t just the price of drugs and alcohol. You also have to pay for the consequences caused by your substance abuse and those definitely don’t come cheap! When you’re weighing your options of what’s more affordable — rehab or addiction — keep these factors in mind.
Health Costs & Struggling With Addiction
Yes, rehab may seem like a pricey health cost, but it’s nothing compared to the racked up bills from overdoses, being rushed to the hospital, or injuries caused by you being high or drunk. While you’re probably just thinking as far ahead as your next fix, drug and alcohol abuse can cause serious long-term health complications that require an expensive upkeep.
Legal Issues Caused by Drug Use
Whether your drug of choice is legal or not, you can still end up with unfortunate run-ins with the law while being under the influence. These drug-related or non-drug-related arrests could rack up thousands — even hundreds of thousands of dollars because of bail, lawyer fees, court costs, and fines.
Losing Your Job Due to Addiction
While your work can’t directly fire you because you have an addiction, they can fire you for other reasons, such as lack of productivity, lousy work performance, and using on the job. The loss of regular income that you would have made if you weren’t fired is definitely more expensive than a rehab program.

Getting Clean & Sober at Home

If you’ve been thinking about getting clean and sober, or if you’ve been wanting to work on and strengthen the recovery you already have, it’s never been easier to do it through telehealth.
