Question by chinadoll: Is there a way to get funding for a treatment center?

Answer by The sex Dr
How much does it cost?” is often one of the first questions asked.

The price tag for drug abuse & alcoholism treatment is presented in many different formats. You need to know what is included, what will be added to your bill as a fee-for-service program, and what services your health insurance will cover. This makes it extremely difficult to compare prices by simply asking the question – “What does it cost?”

If you are seeking the best value for your treatment dollar, remember: Price can be meaningful only in the context of quality and performance.
