AmeriHealth insurance is one insurance plan that offers benefits that cover services at our detox center. Medically supervised detoxification is not a long-term treatment program but is the primary step for addicts and alcoholics to begin their journey towards freedom from addiction. Detoxification is necessary for addiction to alcohol, opiates, heroin, benzos, pain pills, meth, cocaine, Methadone, Suboxone, and Adderall. Individuals that require medical detoxification often need around the clock supervision and the aide of prescription medication.
Drug Detox That Takes AmeriHealth
Most addicts and alcoholics will explain that the reason they do not simply stop taking drugs or drinking is that the withdrawal symptoms are too much for them to tolerate. Withdrawal symptoms vary per addiction, but in general, dangerously affect a person’s physical condition causing nausea, pain, muscle cramping and spasms, hallucinations, delirium tremors, anxiety, and sleeplessness. The medications we prescribe are specialized for each client. Because we are an AmeriHealth drug and alcohol detox center, a complete medical staff oversees our program.
The clinical team at Allure Detox is comprised of medical doctors, psychiatrists, nurses, and therapists who all specialize in addiction detox. AmeriHealth insurance and other insurance plans cover our detox services as a medical diagnosis. Addiction and alcoholism are deemed as medical conditions and considered diseases of the brain; insurance plans must offer benefits that cover this diagnosis with as much validity as they would another disease.
AmeriHealth Covered Drug Detox Centers
According to the American Society of Addiction Medicine, addiction is a brain disease that must be treated as a medical condition.
“Addiction is a primary, chronic disease of brain reward, motivation, memory, and related circuitry. Dysfunction in these circuits leads to characteristic biological, psychological, social, and spiritual manifestations. This is reflected in an individual pathologically pursuing reward and/or relief by substance use and other behaviors. Addiction is characterized by the inability to consistently abstain, impairment in behavioral control, craving, diminished recognition of significant problems with one’s behaviors and interpersonal relationships, and a dysfunctional emotional response. Like other chronic diseases, addiction often involves cycles of relapse and remission. Without treatment or engagement in recovery activities, addiction is progressive and can result in disability or premature death” (ASAM).
