Aetna Insurance for Drug Treatment

Unfortunately, one of the biggest deterrents to people getting help for their addiction to drugs and/or alcohol is money. Not everyone can afford the cost of a premiere rehab treatment center. The good news for a lot of Americans is there’s plenty of treatment centers that will accept payments from major healthcare providers like Aetna Insurance.


About Aetna Insurance

Aetna Insurance was founded in 1853 in Hartford, Connecticut, making it one of the most historic companies in American history. They employ almost 50,000 people, who proudly serve as many as 25,000,000 people located mostly in the greater Northeast. Through its healthcare directives, they work closely with 1.2 million physicians and over 5,000 medical facilities (2016 information).

In 2009, former President Barack Obama signed the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) into law. As part of this progressive legislation, insurance providers were directed to treat addictions as they would any other medical condition. As a result, healthcare providers like Aetna are now required to offer some form of coverage related to getting treatment for addiction. Since the amount of coverage may vary from one policy to another, patients should consult with their carrier prior to visiting a treatment center.


The Importance of Treatment

Left untreated, most addictions will drive the inflicted individual to the gates of prison, insanity or death. For the fortunate people who are willing to admit they are suffering from an addiction and want help, a rehab center in the area of South Florida is a great place to look. Why? South Florida is often referred to as the “rehab capital of the world.”

With the proper amount and kind of treatment, patients have a realistic chance of beating their addiction and traveling down the road to recovery. It’s not easy. The process requires focus and commitment on the part of the patient. Anything less, and the likelihood of a relapse increases.


The Treatment Process

With an insurance company like Aetna stepping up to remove the financial burden, patients can focus on treatment. Depending on the depth and longevity of their addiction, some patients may need a stint in detox before they enter the therapy phase of treatment. A properly monitored detox program helps to remove residual harmful substances from the patient’s body. This is an important part of getting ready for the rigors of therapy.

In therapy, the process is usually directed towards finding out why the patient feels the need to harm themselves via substance abuse. The why is not always easy to determine, but is does offer tremendous benefits. In this day and age, most quality rehabs will make an effort to customize a patient’s treatment program. This is an effective approach because each patient enters rehab with a unique set of circumstances. Once the whys have been isolated, it becomes infinitely easier for a counselor to help a patient develop the proper coping skills. These are the skills they will need on the outside when confronted by the very triggers that usually create the desire to drink and/or use drugs.

After treatment is completed, the patient is send out to negotiate their everyday life without using substances as a buffer. Because addiction is never cured, only arrested, aftercare options can play a pivotal part in keeping a patient clean. Some of the most popular aftercare options include aftercare outpatient followup counseling, 12-Step meetings, sober living and transitional living. The most important thing that needs to happen is the patient needs to avoid using harmful substances at all costs “one day at a time.”
