In some cases, drug rehab expenses may be deductible from your taxes. However, whether or not they are deductible depends on various factors, such as your income, medical expenses, and the type of treatment you received.

According to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS), you may be able to deduct medical and dental expenses if they exceed 7.5% of your adjusted gross income. This includes expenses related to addiction treatment, such as inpatient and outpatient rehab programs, counseling, and medication-assisted treatment.

It’s important to note that deductions for medical expenses are only available if you itemize your deductions, rather than taking the standard deduction. Additionally, there may be some restrictions on which types of addiction treatment expenses are deductible.

As tax laws can be complex and are subject to change, it’s recommended that you consult with a tax professional or the IRS for specific guidance on whether your drug rehab expenses are deductible.
