AmeriHealth Drug Rehab

The Addiction Epidemic

Millions of Americans will struggle with drug abuse this year, swimming against the tide of addiction even as they crave the very substances that might well cause their eventual downfall. In more frightening is the fact that drug abuse is on the rise. In 2002, the National Institute on Drug Abuse reported that 8.3 percent of Americans aged 12 or older had used an illicit drug or abused a prescribed medication for reasons other than medically intended. In 2012, the number had grown to 9.2 percent.

Withdrawing in an AmeriHealth Drug Rehab Treatment Center

The first step towards sobriety is breaking the cycle of addiction. When abused long term, both illicit and prescription drugs can cause physical and psychological dependency, and depriving your body of those substances will likely result in painful withdrawal symptoms. While each drug has its own specific effects on the body, general drug withdrawal looks a lot like this:

  • Anxiety or jumpiness
  • Uncontrollable shaking
  • Sweating
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Loss of appetite
  • Headaches
  • Insomnia
  • Depression

In severe cases, as with long-term addicts who cease their drug use abruptly, withdrawal symptoms can be more serious and even life-threatening. Medically managed detox can be helpful when attempting to manage withdrawal symptoms, but some insurance companies consider these methods to still be experimental and as such they might not be included in your AmeriHealth drug rehab coverage.

How an AmeriHealth Drug Rehab Works

Your AmeriHealth policy likely encompasses a wide variety of treatment options. It's up to you to decide which type of facility and treatment is best suited for your needs and financial situation, and not all drug rehabilitation facilities will necessarily be covered equally.

  • Inpatient Rehab – By admitting yourself to a full-time inpatient AmeriHealth drug rehab treatment center, you're removing the temptations of the outside world and dedicating your entire life to recovery.
  • Outpatient Rehab – You can also choose to receive treatment from an AmeriHealth drug rehab treatment center on an outpatient basis, which will allow you more freedom to continue working, attending school, or taking care of your family.
  • Transitional Living – Sober living homes can help ease the transition between full-time residency at an inpatient clinic and the often overwhelming freedom that comes with returning to your home.

The recovery process can seem overwhelming, but by tackling your sobriety step by step, you can conquer drug rehabilitation and regain control over your life.
