The cost of a drug intervention can vary widely depending on several factors, such as the location of the intervention, the number of people involved, and the level of professional assistance required. Here are some general estimates for the cost of a drug intervention:
DIY Intervention: If the family or friends conduct the intervention themselves, the cost of a drug intervention can be minimal. They may need to pay for transportation, lodging, or food for the person, but the process is essentially free.
Professional Interventionist: If a professional interventionist is hired to conduct the intervention, the cost can range from $2,500 to $10,000 or more, depending on the level of experience and reputation of the interventionist, as well as the duration and complexity of the intervention.
Treatment Program: If the person agrees to enter a treatment program following the intervention, there will be additional costs associated with the program. The cost of a drug treatment program can range from a few thousand dollars to tens of thousands of dollars, depending on the length of stay and the level of care needed.
It’s important to note that while a professional interventionist can be expensive, they may be able to facilitate a successful intervention and ultimately save money in the long run by helping the person enter treatment and avoid the costs associated with continued drug abuse, such as medical bills, legal fees, and lost wages. It’s important to research different options and talk to a professional to determine the best course of action for the individual’s unique situation. Additionally, some insurance plans may cover some or all of the costs of drug intervention and treatment.
