Check Your Coverage
It is not uncommon for people to have more coverage than they think. Most health insurances will cover the cost of the following programs:
When committing to treatment, most people start with a detox. Detox is the foundational aspect of treatment. The detoxification process typically requires the patient to stay in a detox facility while experienced medical professionals help to get alcohol or drug toxins out of your system. Depending on the substances, withdrawal symptoms may be dangerous. Therefore, some detox programs require more medical supervision and even medication.
Inpatient and Residential Care
Inpatient care is for individuals recovering from alcohol or drug use. Also known as residential care, inpatient programs offer a safe and secure, drug-free environment for patients to recover from their addiction comfortably. The live-in facility offers medical and clinical supervision around the clock. Many individuals find residential care to be essential in their recovery process.
Outpatient programs work well for clients with less severe substance issues. If you participate in this type of program, you will likely live at home or a sober home. Outpatient care typically involves therapy and counseling sessions during the day, so you can return home at night to take care of responsibilities. People often begin outpatient care following a more intensive level of care like inpatient and residential care.
Dual diagnosis, or co-occurring disorders are common within addiction treatment. Individuals with co-occurring disorders commonly struggle with addiction alongside mental health issues such as anxiety, depression, bipolar disorder, and more. Dual diagnosis patients generally find treatment in an inpatient setting. This type of setting offers the help that patients need when dealing with co-occurring disorders. Research shows that treating both disorders together is the best route to recovery for these specific patients.
Following treatment, many individuals will continue therapy sessions. At Chapel Hill Detox, we believe this is an essential part of sustaining recovery. Recovery does not end when treatment ends. It is a lifelong process, and building relapse prevention skills are critical. Therefore, many rehab insurance policies cover continued care after treatment.
Continued care also refers to sober living homes. Many people who finish treatment may feel they are not ready to go back to living a sober life. They will live with other recovering individuals in a substance-free home with support and rules in these cases.
