State-funded rehab vs. private rehab

State-funded rehab centers are organizations that use government money, distributed by the state, to support people in recovery from addiction to alcohol or drugs. Private rehabilitation programs derive their funding from private insurance providers and admission fees from people who enroll.

State-funded rehabs

Due to limited funding, state-funded rehabs aren’t always able to provide the most current technologies and treatments, compared to private treatment centers. However, this doesn’t mean that the therapies offered won’t be effective.

Private rehabs

The level of comfort, amenities, and activities at private treatment facilities account for much of the difference in average cost of treatment. In many cases, a percentage of this cost can be covered by insurance providers – sometimes even most of the cost.
