Addiction Treatment in the United States

Every year people come to the United States from around the world to get treatment for drug and alcohol addiction. The U.S. is home to the best addiction treatment centers, which offer a variety of evidence-based programs for treating addiction.

High-quality treatment programs cost approximately $1000 per day for a 30- to 90-day program. Longer programs, 90-days or more, are typically less, around $15,000 per month, but they too become expensive when considering the extended length of stay. The most important thing is getting your family member into the right program.  

If you’re coming to The United States for treatment make sure to fully research your options, because while the best programs are here there are also bad ones you need to avoid. Unless you are knowledgeable about addiction recovery, it makes sense to hire an experienced interventionist who can guide you through the process, while also helping you identify the highest level of care for your loved one. According to Marc Kantor of South Florida Intervention, of which he is an addiction Interventionist in Miami, Florida, treatment centers spend as much as $5000 to attract each new client, so they’re unlikely to refer you another program even when there's a bad fit.  

Hiring a reputable interventionist costs approximately $10,000, plus travel expenses, but that’s a good investment considering the overall cost of treatment and what's at stake.

An interventionist will work closely with your family ensuring a successful intervention, including travel to the US, and escort your loved one safely to treatment. Having this service reduces stress and make the process far simpler.

In addition to the treatment team, the interventionist according to Marc Kantor should be your trusted point of contact and will continue working with the family during and after the completion of treatment. Aftercare services cost extra but here again, are a good investment in helping prevent a relapse.
The interventionist’s engagement with your family should continue for a minimum of 90-days after treatment is completed.
