Rehabs with Private Rooms: What to Expect

Treatment for drug misuse and addiction is provided in a variety of settings using different approaches, including behavioral and pharmacological.1 Among these many approaches to drug addiction is an inpatient treatment program, which is sometimes referred to as residential treatment.2

An inpatient treatment program provides patients with a comfortable residential living environment that includes access to treatment services.3 These inpatient facilities offer people a safe, monitored environment where they may stay for several weeks or months, depending on their needs.2 In the United States, there are over 14,500 specialized drug treatment facilities, some of which provide inpatient treatment services.1

You can find a rehab with private rooms in some locations. When you contact the facility, ask if they are a rehab center with single rooms. A rehab with private rooms will be different from a typical inpatient rehab facility. You will have a room to yourself and your own bathroom. In addition, you may find that these facilities are more upscale and luxurious.

Who Is Looking for a Private Room?

Many inpatient rehab facilities are set up with shared living spaces and rooms. These types of living spaces may be uncomfortable for some people who prefer more privacy. Some of the disadvantages of sharing a room at an inpatient drug rehab center may include:

  • You don’t have the privacy you want.
  • You may have a roommate whose personal style doesn’t mesh with yours.
  • You may prefer quiet time when in your room.
  • You may be uncomfortable sharing a private space with another person.
  • You may have anxiety and a roommate creates more tension for you.
  • You’ll have to take turns using shared items.

Rehab centers with private rooms tend to attract certain types of individuals. These people prefer to stay in one of the inpatient rehab centers with private rooms for various reasons. Some of these individuals may include:

This doesn’t mean that these are the only people who stay at rehabs with single rooms. Anyone who desires a rehab with a private room can seek out one.

Benefits of Rehab Centers with Private Rooms

There are numerous benefits of having a private room. Some of these benefits may include:

  • You have more privacy.
  • There is more space to spread out.
  • You can have quiet time alone to meditate or relax.
  • You don’t have to share any of the items in the room, such as the closet, dresser, bathroom, etc.
  • Rehabs with private rooms are usually luxurious.
  • Many rehabs with private rooms have more amenities.

Cost of Rehabs with Private Rooms

The cost of rehabs with private rooms varies between facilities. It makes sense that the rehabs with single rooms will be more costly than those with shared room since, with the latter, the costs are split between more occupants.

Another factor that can affect the cost of a rehab offering private rooms is they generally are more upscale and luxurious. These luxury treatment centers have more amenities and perks. You can verify your insurance with a rehab offering private rooms to determine if they will pay some of the cost for care.

Finding a Rehab with Private Rooms

Private rooms are not the standard in an inpatient or residential treatment center. They may be more difficult to find. If you do find one, there could be a wait time to get in. The best way to go about finding rehabs with private rooms is to look for a luxury treatment center or an inpatient executive rehab. These types of treatment facilities are more likely to have private rooms due to the type of people they are attracting.

Whether or not a private room is high on your list of priorities for treatment, it’s always a good idea to call the treatment center to discuss the levels of care that are offered to ensure that you’re getting care you need,  as well as to verify your insurance coverage. An admissions navigator can let you know if your insurance is in network and what is covered or not covered. In the event that insurance won’t cover a private room, admissions navigators can go over other ways to pay for treatment so that you can get the help you deserve.
