Private Inpatient Facilities
The average program for a private inpatient rehabilitation and detoxification center is 28 days, but 90 day programs are also offered depending upon the mental, emotional and physical state of the patient. Not all private inpatient facilities offer detoxification programs, but many do provide medically assisted treatment to help reduce withdrawal symptoms. Naturally, the cost of this type of program is significantly more expensive due to the need for housing accommodations, meals, staffing and additional alternative therapies offered. Most facilities offer luxuries such as a premium beachside or moutain-view location, swimming pool, massage therapy and workout areas. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, the success rate of private inpatient facilities sits between 40 and 60 percent.
IV NAD+ Therapy
IV NAD+ therapy is the most natural and effective way to detoxify the body from substance abuse. Furthermore, patients who have chosen IV NAD+ therapy reported minimal withdrawal symptoms during detoxification and almost no cravings after completing the program. The average treatment for addiction is approximately ten days, but each patient will have a customized protocol determined by the doctor. This type of therapy is becoming more widely accepted by insurance companies, and patients have reported up to 90 percent reimbursement. IV NAD+ facilities offer complimentary therapies such as massage and nutrition counseling, as well as aftercare support and dual diagnosis referrals. The NAD Treatment Center incorporates innovative technology, such as the Bridge (non-invasive device that stimulates nerves for pain reduction) and the BEMER (electromagnetic therapy to enhance cellular detoxification). The success rate of IV NAD+ is currently above 90 percent.

Public Outpatient Programs
Those who do not have the financial means for private inpatient programs turn to public outpatient rehabilitation centers. These centers are often funded by government organizations and have an extensive waiting list. Patients are not able to stay overnight, and are required to make the commitment to show up during the initial phase of treatment. After the first 10-30 days of counseling, the patient will be given a prescription to replace the abused substance of choice. For example, suboxone is often prescribed for opiate addiction which is a synthetic form of heroin. While the initial cost of the treatment is relatively low, the patient must continually pay for the prescription cost, which often runs up to more than $200 per month. Public outpatient programs do not offer complementary therapies and treatment options for dual diagnosis are limited. The success rate of outpatient therapies is less than 60%.
Alcoholics anonymous is famous for their 12-step program for addiction recovery. While this support group focuses on alcohol addiction, they do offer limited support for other types of addictions, and now are complemented by Narcohotics Anonymous. Most referrals for drug addiction are made by a doctor and not the organization itself. Members must attend weekly meetings and are paired up with a sponsor for additional support. Alcoholics Anonymous does not offer detoxification, is not a replacement for counseling, and has a success rate of 27%.
