Drug rehab treatment at a facility such as Sivana Rehab is notoriously costly and for those who may have spent years as an addict it is almost impossible to afford, especially if it is a residential clinic. The day clinics are cheaper, but their recovery rate may not be as high due to the addict returning to a high-risk environment each night. However, there are some free residential clinics available, which may be a good option for those who want to kick the habit that is wrecking their lives.

While state funded rehab clinics are available, there are pros and cons to using them. Here are some things to consider before making a choice.


  • The biggest pro is that these clinics are free of charge. People who absolutely cannot afford the cost of drug rehab can get help.
  • They are often reasonably close so there is little cost for travelling.
  • If you have no or few financial resources, they are certainly better than nothing.
  • They are residential, so you don’t have to return to a high risk environment each night.
  • They use programmes that have worked for many drug addicts in the past.
  • They have some volunteer medical staff, so you are likely to get people who know a lot about drug treatment.
