Life After Drug Rehab: Paying the Bill

Drug rehab can come with a price but don’t let that stop you from the recovery you deserve!

Drug rehab can come with a price but don’t let that stop you from the recovery you deserve!

Long after you have finished getting treatment for a drug addiction there’s a chance that you will still be paying the bill. The cost of addiction runs far deeper than just the cost of going into treatment. There are other bills that accrue such as the need to pay back the people you love, the need to cover the cost of your long term treatment and the need to cover the cost of the various bills that were left unpaid while you were in treatment. Here’s a look at what you can expect after drug rehab in terms of bills and how you can plan to pay these bills while you are in recovery.

Paying the Bills Associated with Drug Rehab

Some drug rehab centers will allow you to let a bill accrue for treatment with the agreement that you will pay the fees back after you have completed the rehab program. If you are in drug rehab for a month, two months or more then there’s a chance that the bill that you have to pay back is relatively large. Handling a debt such as this can be very difficult to cope with, especially when you are in recovery from a drug addiction but while you were in treatment you learned how to cope with stress just like this so be prepared to use the tools that you learned in treatment when it comes to paying the bills associated with your drug treatment.

When it’s time to pay back the rehab center for the treatment that was provided to you, consider asking your friends and family for help. If you don’t have a job, they may be able to help you find a job. It’s always a good idea to ask for support rather than to keep all the difficult and challenging situations and feelings to yourself so don’t be afraid to ask for help. Make sure you have created a budget and once you have your budget in place, stick to it and you will be able to repay the debt that was accrued when you were in treatment.

Paying Bills that Went Unpaid While in Drug Rehab

If you were in drug rehab for an extended time period than you probably didn’t work and unless you had a significant amount of savings or someone else was paying your bills for you during this time period then there’s a chance that you have some pretty hefty bills to take care of. The same way that you have to create a budget to pay back the cost of treatment, a budget can also help you to stay on track and pay back the past due bills that were accrued while you were in treatment. First things first, contact the companies that you own money to and let them know that you were in treatment and are now ready to make every attempt to get the bills caught up. Some companies will even forgo late fees and other charges because you were in treatment so again, don’t be afraid to talk about it.

Paying Back Your Family After Drug Rehab

Finally, you have to work on a way to pay back your family after you finish drug rehab. Paying your family back may not only be something that requires a financial commitment, but also an emotional commitment. It’s likely that while you were addicted to drugs or alcohol that you treated your family members and loved ones very poorly. It’s important that you pay them back for the love and support that they provided to you despite the way that you treated them. There are many ways that you can pay family back after drug rehab such as providing help and support for them, attending family counseling sessions that will rebuild the trust and relationships and you can repay them financially once you have worked on paying back other financial obligations.
