AmeriHealth Addiction Treatment
AmeriHealth Addiction Recovery: The Reality of Addiction
We are facing an addiction epidemic. The Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) estimates that in 2009 some 23.5 million Americans 12 years of age or older needed treatment for an addiction to alcohol or illicit drugs. Perhaps even more frightening is the revelation that only 11.2 percent of those in need of professional addiction assistance actually received it.
Addiction comes in many forms, and often encompasses more than one substance or behavior. From alcohol abuse to a reliance on prescription opiates or cocaine to gambling compulsion or sexual addiction, our society is rife with the kind of triggers that constantly encourage and reinforce addictive behaviors, making it all the more difficult for those fighting their urges to seek help and embrace a new beginning. AmeriHealth addiction recovery specialists are trained to help patients identify the causes of their addiction so they are primed for the best possible chance of a sober future.
Identifying Addictive Behavior
If you're worried that a loved one might be in the throes of drug or alcohol addiction, you may be wondering what signs and symptoms to be on the lookout for. While each substance or behavior manifests itself differently in regards to the physical, much of the sociological impact is the same:

- An overwhelming urge to use the drug or engage in the addictive behavior
- Anxiety and/or irritability when you don't have access to it
- Hiding the behavior or drug reliance
- Stealing or pawning to maintain your habit
- Engaging in risky behavior you wouldn't otherwise participate in
- Sacrificing your personal relationships or experiencing an inability to work, study, or engage in normal daily activities
- Experiencing withdrawal when you try to lessen or cease use
- Realizing you can’t stop, no matter how badly you want to
If these symptoms sound familiar, it's important that you talk with an expert in AmeriHealth addiction recovery benefits to gauge what coverage you may be entitled to so you can begin the rehabilitation process in one of AmeriHealth's affiliated addiction treatment facilities.
The Comparative Cost of AmeriHealth Addiction Recovery
So, what will your AmeriHealth addiction recovery entail? The truth is that it depends largely on the type of addiction you're struggling with, the type of addiction treatment centers best fit your needs, and the comprehensive plan you and your team of medical professionals put into action. If your AmeriHealth policy doesn't offer 100 percent coverage, there are other options available to help ease the financial burden, but one thing is certain: there is no cost greater than that of succumbing to addiction.
