Does My Health Insurance Cover Detox?

Cost is often a large consideration for an individual or family member when they are calling into a detox facility or addiction treatment center, seeking help for themselves or a loved one. Typically in a crisis, the first questions revolve around what the specific rehab does and if what they do is appropriate in offering treatment services for the individual suffering from addiction. However, once there is a mutual understanding of the nature of the addiction for the person needing help, and that the treatment center, detox, or rehab appropriately can offer medical, clinical, and therapeutic services to meet the needs of the person in active addiction, there is often questions surrounding financials and health insurance. Addiction treatment is not [...]

2023-01-18T15:59:01-05:00January 18, 2023|Detox|

Addiction doesn’t discriminate. The old thought process of the homeless person under the bridge clutching a bottle in a brown paper bag is no longer what society thinks of as a person suffering from alcoholism, addiction, or substance use disorder. No matter someone’s employment, financial situation, or life station, addiction is the great equalizer, and for someone suffering from addiction, detox is the first necessary step to overcoming active addiction and beginning a life of recovery. However, for those people that often do have more work responsibilities than most, such as business owners and company executives, it is not as easy to say go to detox, leave your work alone, and focus on your recovery. Many of these people work [...]

Over 100 million individuals in the United States alone suffer from chronic pain. In fact, studies show that the economic burden of chronic pain exceeds $600 billion.  Many Americans struggle with conditions that are associated with chronic pain such as severe headaches and migraines, back pain, arthritis, and cancer just to mention a few.  Millions of prescriptions are written by doctors each day for opioid-based pain medications. Unfortunately, opioids are the most commonly used medication for chronic pain at a time when the U.S. is in the midst of an opioid epidemic. Many of the powerful opioids used in pain management are known to cause harmful side effects and can often lead to addiction.  Although opioids have been used effectively [...]

2023-01-24T16:57:54-05:00January 2, 2023|Detox|

Struggling with addiction is usually a very traumatizing experience. If you or your loved one finally decides to quit using drugs or alcohol, detox is usually the first step of the journey to recovery.

That’s why it’s important to attend detox in a medical facility after you decide to quit using.  However, detox can be both physically and mentally draining, which [...]

Do I Need Detox from Drugs and Alcohol?

2023-01-09T15:59:57-05:00December 28, 2022|Detox|

For someone suffering from substance use disorder, the first step in overcoming addiction is typically detox. If a person is drinking or using drugs every single day, or binge drinking or using, there is a definite period of stabilization that is needed, both physically and emotionally, before any clinical treatment would be effective. Additionally, for many people using certain specific substances, such as alcohol, opioids, or benzodiazepines, there is a large chance that the person had developed a physical dependency to those substances. This means that their bodies are now physically dependent (or addicted) to those substances, and they will certainly develop physical withdrawal symptoms when attempting to stop their use. This is why detox is a vital piece [...]
