While the cost of rehab may be a deterrent for some people, it is important to remember the many “costs” of addiction. Addiction can be costly due to:
- The cost of the drugs.
- Loss of productivity at work.
- Legal fines.
- Medical bills for physical or mental health issues associated with addiction.
- Addiction “costs” users in other ways too, ranging from the deterioration of relationships to overall unhappiness and poor health.
