Why Do I Need Treatment for Drug and Alcohol Addiction?

Addiction is a serious issue, and without the appropriate level of professional treatment, it is very unlikely that someone will be able to put an end to their substance abuse. According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse, The path to drug addiction begins with the voluntary act of taking drugs,” but eventually, “a person’s ability to choose not to do so becomes compromised.”

Coverage will vary depending on your policy and the facility you choose.

Treatment can help reestablish normal brain functions and allow patients to learn the skills they need to be able to live in recovery.

What Treatment Options Are Available to Me?

There are a number of treatment options available at differing program lengths. Depending on your needs, you may require a more intensive option like inpatient care, or you may only require treatment in an outpatient facility. These different types of programs offer many of the same options, as well as referrals to free or low-cost programs (like support groups) if they are not offered by the facility specifically.

It is important to consider your needs for recovery at this time and to decide what type or facility will be most beneficial to you. As stated by the NIDA, “Effective treatment attends to multiple needs of the individual, not just his or her drug abuse,” and it is important that you find the best program for your needs.

Can Aetna Insurance Help Cover My Treatment?

Yes, Aetna Insurance can cover at least all or part of your addiction treatment program. The amount of coverage will often depend on several factors, such as:

  • Your personal insurance plan
  • The facility of your choice
  • The severity of your condition
  • The length of your program

Aetna will cover all or part of most inpatient and outpatient programs offering 30, 60, and 90-day programs, and many times, longer programs can be at least partially covered as well. If you are in need of addiction treatment, it is important to seek professional care and never to avoid this necessity for any reason. Financial and other issues can be taken care of, especially if you choose to attend treatment with the help of Aetna.

How Much of My Program Will Be Covered?

The amount of coverage is completely based on a person’s individual situation as well as the facility they choose, but Aetna will likely pay for at least part if not all of your rehab program. Once you choose your facility and discuss your plan, you can begin to consider how you might cover any additional cost to you, either by paying upfront or financing it over time.
