Please note that the question of “are drug rehabilitation expenses tax-deductible? is one of the best questions from a professional accountant or tax preparer, all of which can help you navigate this complex financial problem when it's time to prepare your tax returns. A reputable drug and alcohol treatment center will provide you with a detailed list of charges for your treatment or that of a loved one, so you have that paperwork when it comes time to prepare your taxes, hopefully when the treatment you are paying for has changed a life for the better.
Drug rehabilitation is a qualifying tax-deductible medical cost, as long as medical costs exceed 7.5 percent of your annual gross income. This means all medical costs, not just the cost of rehabilitation.
