The Price of Addiction vs. The Price of Addiction Treatments

As professionals working in the addiction and mental health field, we know that one block that hits us when seeking help is the cost of the intervention and treatment.

There are wide ranges of services and sites available, with many overwhelming choices for the type of treatment.  We understand but we also know that the truth of an addiction and keeping it progressing comes with a high price to the loved ones, the community, and often the employer.

The cost of addiction shows up loudly when we look at paying off late bills, interest charges and fines, overdrafts, paying for housing, deposit, gasoline, lost, stolen or damaged possessions, auto body repairs, utility deposits, and bills, sending money every month to a jail or prison for family phone calls or commissary, and other enticements to keep them safe.  We give or loan money to cover drug buys or even life essentials. We pay when we pick up diapers, buy extra food, replace worn-out shoes, pay for haircuts to try and mask how badly our person looks, the cost of replacing cell phones, monthly charges, and legal and court fees.

We pay dearly in ways one cannot measure. We pay from the heart.

The costs add up quickly, but when it’s $20 here and $40 there, you might not even notice it or have the time to sit there and mark down just how much you give to support the use. You might think that their addiction is not costing you anything, because you are not paying for their drugs and alcohol, but you are paying for their addiction. By paying their rent or allowing them to live with you, you are allowing them to live comfortably in their addiction. They are not being held accountable for the actions or responsibilities as an adult.  You might argue that paying for their food is not contributing to their addiction, but ask yourself this: “If your loved one was a responsible adult, would you be paying for their food every day?” Also, if you give them money for food, the chances of them using it to actually buy food is low and that is one of the scariest aspects of addiction. A person can be starving, but if you give them money for food, more often than not, they will spend it on drugs or alcohol, instead of food. When you buy their food, money is freed up for buys and use.

Most people discover that addiction treatment is much cheaper than continuing to pay for the path of addiction. If the price is still a concern, call us now and we will explore other options that you may not know about. These may include grants, loans, and treatment centers that are covered by your insurance, costing you very little out of pocket.

Taking the First Step

Taking the first step to reach out when worried and frustrated is the first step. It means we finally see that we can no longer manage things ourselves and we are open to hearing from someone outside our circle. It is often easier to talk to a compassionate and knowledgeable stranger as we do not have to fear being judged. We at True Interventions have been in your seat. Maybe in the seat of one using or perhaps one struggling with and loving someone who is caught in the cycle of alcohol, substance abuse problems, or caught in a new lifestyle, doing things he or she would not have done before. We know what it is like to feel the changes in ourselves, in the family or unit. We may not quite be able to say for sure how far a problem has gone but it is tearing us apart.   

By picking up the phone and calling us, you have done more to help yourself than you think.

We listen and we hear. We hear not just words but all the unspoken questions and we hear your distress.  At True Interventions, we always start the conversation by listening. What moved you to make the call? We will complete a confidential assessment. We want to learn as much about you as possible, what your life looks like and feels like so we can truly understand what the problems are with options to help you.

We are experts at resourcing and seeing the reality of problems that have created this new norm for you.   We know that everyone is unique, as are our histories. Our mission is to find the best clinical fit for the person at the right time and to guide the process to safety and healing. We are experts at interventions– that process that provides the family with direction, help, and solutions. We make sure to find the best possible fit for you or your loved ones at a price you can afford with direct placement at the best facility to fit your needs. We work with only the best national addiction and treatment facilities, ensuring that your loved one has every opportunity to heal. We work with centers that offer various treatment options to cater to your recovery process. One size does not fit all.  Ultimately, you the family will make the placement decision. We will offer choices after examining all factors, including best clinical fit.

During preparation to explore the possibilities of directing the Interventions, our Coordinators will do a case consult, examining the full spectrum or range of needs and dimensions of your loved one’s functioning, per ASAMS (American Society of Addiction Medicine). All of our Coordinators are Nationally Certified Family Addiction Coaches.

It has been said that FEAR can have two meanings and responses– Avoid, forget everything and run – Or face everything and RISE.

We will help you stand, find your voice, and rise. It only takes picking up the phone.
