The average cost of Xanax rehab
The first step of rehab – medical detox – costs at least $250-500 per day, and maybe higher at some facilities or in some states. The cost of detox varies greatly from one facility to the next. Plus, some inpatient rehab programs will include the price of detox in their average cost.
Next, inpatient addiction treatment can range from free to several thousand dollars per week, with an average daily cost of $700-800. This brings the average price of a 28-day residential rehab program to about $19,000-$20,000. Reputable inpatient programs often partner with insurance companies to offset the cost.
Finally, the average price of outpatient treatment is about $135-200 per day, which adds up to around $9,000 for a 10-week intensive outpatient rehab program. However, many programs negotiate a reasonable price according to your attendance and needs, with an average 12-16 weeks less intensive price range of $2,000-$4,000 per treatment episode.

Xanax rehabilitation process
Rehab for Xanax is like a combination of continued education classes, personal training, and summer camp. What can you expect during Xanax rehab?
1. Intake assessment. The first step of Xanax rehab is to evaluate and assess the nature of your addiction. This is done with an initial interview, an assessment of your physical and mental health state, and by administering a drug test. The battery of assessments will then help rehab staff to create your personal treatment plan.
2. Medical detox. If you’ve become physically dependent on Xanax you need to get the drug out of your system. This is usually done by weaning off of the drug under the supervision of a doctor. Be sure that you find a treatment facility with experience in Xanax detox. Medical teams should offer 24-7 monitoring, support, and administer medications to help manage withdrawal symptoms as they occur.
3. Addiction treatment programs. Afterwards, the main modalities of treatment can begin. You’ll need to decide between an inpatient or an outpatient program based on your wants and needs.
Inpatient Xanax rehab is a type of residential addiction treatment. This means that you reside in a rehab facility during treatment and attend therapy and counseling sessions in a structured and controlled environment. Inpatient rehab traditionally takes about a month to complete. More intensive inpatient rehab programs are available, however, and these can take up a few months to a year to complete.
Outpatient Xanax rehab does not require you to reside in the facility. Instead, you are expected to travel to the facility (usually daily or several times weekly) to undergo therapy, counseling, and other treatments. Oftentimes, outpatient rehab is used as aftercare following inpatient rehab, but it can also be used as a standalone treatment for Xanax addiction. Outpatient rehab can last several months to several years.
4. Aftercare. Finally, you can expect Xanax rehab staff to develop a custom aftercare plan and/or connect you with aftercare options in the form of counseling, support groups, alumni involvement, or residence in a sober living facility.
As you can see, the rehab and recovery process from Xanax addiction is long and complex…just like the condition itself. All of the services provided on your way to sobriety are expected to add to the end cost. But, paying the price of ongoing addiction and related health issues are much more expensive than paying for treatment.
Think of it this way: when you finance your rehab – you finance your sober future.

What influences the cost of your Xanax rehab?
The cost of rehab is difficult to estimate without targeting specific variables. In fact, there are a number of factors that will influence the end price of Xanax addiction treatment. These factors usually include:
Facility you choose = Luxury vs. basic.
Type of treatment = Inpatient (residential), outpatient, intensive outpatient (IOP), etc.
Duration of treatment = 30 days, 60 days, 90 days, or longer.
Treatment facility location = Close to your living area or far away (destination rehab).
Therapies included = Cognitive behavioral therapy, motivational interviewing, dual diagnosis treatment, family and couples therapy, educational sessions and career counseling, and more.
Additional therapies = Mindfulness training, yoga, Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR), Neurofeedback, art therapy, animal therapy, music therapy, acupuncture, and more.
Typically, the cost of Xanax rehab in an inpatient facility will be much more expensive than outpatient Xanax rehab. An inpatient facility’s room and board are the most obvious reasons for this. The cost of Xanax rehab on an outpatient basis is usually less expensive, due to the fact that you continue to live at home. However, there is a difference in cost depending on the type of outpatient care you require For example, Intensive Outpatient Programs (IOPs) that require several sessions each week will be more expensive than less intense programs that require one visit per week.
Additionally, luxury inpatient rehab facilities offer a resort-like atmosphere, which can additionally increase the price of your treatment. Locations close to the beach or in remote settings can also be more expensive. Some cities and states also tend to increase the price tag for rehab. Finally, the cost of Xanax rehab is also influenced by the duration of the program. Individuals who are in rehab for one or several months will pay less than those in need of recovery services for a year or more.
