Can I Get A Private Room At A Drug Rehab Center?

There are many factors to consider when choosing an addiction treatment center, including personal space. Facilities that offer private rooms may appeal to people who place a high value on privacy.

Can I Get A Private Room At A Rehab Center?

Selecting a rehab center involves asking a lot of questions. There are many programs to choose from, and finding one that is best suited for you or your loved one can help ensure success in recovery.

Having a private room while attending a substance abuse treatment program may be helpful for some people in recovery, but this option isn’t available at every facility.

Can I Get A Private Room At A Rehab Center?

Yes, some addiction treatment centers offer private rooms, but clients typically have to pay more for these rooms and they aren’t always available.

Luxury rehab centers also often have private rooms, but treatment at a luxury facility will cost more than treatment at a non-luxury rehab center.

For some people, having personal space where they can retreat to during the day and sleep at night is worth the added cost of a private room.

How Much Does A Private Room Cost?

This ultimately depends on the rehab center. For treatment centers that offer a private room at an extra cost to the client, you will need to contact the facility, because costs vary widely.

Keep in mind that the average cost of a residential treatment program in 2022 was about $42,000, so having a private room will most likely increase that average cost.

Private rooms often come standard at luxury rehab centers, but these programs can cost as much as $80,000. This cost goes to support other high-end amenities, too, not just private rooms.

Are Private Rooms Covered By Health Insurance?

Health insurance coverage varies depending on the insurance policy. Some policies only cover specific treatment services, or only cover outpatient drug or alcohol addiction treatment.

If a luxury rehab facility is in-network with your health insurance provider, then its services will likely be covered by your plan.

This doesn’t mean that the treatment program will be free to you. Check with your insurance provider to verify coverage, being sure to ask about deductibles, co-insurance, and copays.

Different Approaches To Privacy

Many treatment centers provide dormitory-style living, where two or more clients share sleeping quarters.

Rehab centers that offer semi-private living arrangements may provide clients with their own room but a shared bathroom.

Communal living may come with benefits. Building social connections and practicing social skills can add to the healing process, putting concepts learned in therapy or dual diagnosis treatment into practice.

Ultimately, you may want to consider how important privacy is to you. If communal living distracts you from treatment, the added cost of a private room may be worth the investment.
