Parents of ‘affluenza’ teen who killed four people in drunk driving accident are paying only $1,170 for his treatment after offering to send him to a $450,000 a year rehab facility

The family of a Texas teenager sentenced to probation after killing four people in a drunken-driving wreck will pay for just a fraction of his court-ordered treatment, a court official testified Friday.


Ethan Couch’s parents will be charged $1,170 a month for his treatment at the North Texas State Hospital in rural Vernon. That amount would cover less than two days of treatment, which costs $715 a day, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.
