Louisiana has seen an increase in drug overdose deaths in recent years and is one of the top 20 states in the U.S. with the highest rates of drug overdose deaths.1 In 2016, there were more drug overdose deaths than homicides in the Orleans and East Baton Rouge parishes in the state. Most of the increases in drug-related deaths are related to an opioid epidemic that has swept the state.2
What’s more, many people needing rehab don’t actually get it. From 2007-2014, more than 83% of individuals with illicit drug abuse or dependence in Louisiana did not receive treatment.3
The Louisiana Department of Health was recently given $8.1 million in funding from the federal government to address the opioid crisis. The money will be used to improve and expand existing opioid-related prevention, treatment, and recovery services in the state.2
Due to the different approaches to treatment and the varying levels of care offered at different treatment facilities, there is no set price for addiction treatment. The cost of rehab will depend on the length of treatment you need, facility amenities, program type and other services offered.
Inpatient treatment is generally more expensive than outpatient programs due to the associated costs of meals and lodging. Luxury facilities with resort-like amenities are also more expensive. Factors outside of your control such as the recommended length of treatment and the needed treatment services will also impact the cost.
