APS Healthcare Addiction Treatment
If you or a loved one is suffering from an addiction to drugs or alcohol, you need to understand your insurance coverage so you can begin your APS Healthcare addiction recovery treatment plan as soon as possible while also being prepared for the financial, mental, and emotional impact.
Admitting Your Addiction
Addiction is a disease. Recognizing that there is no shame in accepting your illness is the first – and best – step you can take towards accepting help and getting treatment. When you're in the throes of addiction it's easy to feel alone, but the reality is that there are more than 23 million Americans aged 12 years or older who are currently in need of treatment for a dependency or addiction to drugs and/or alcohol. Of those 23 million, only 11.2 percent actually received the professional help they needed.

The Road to Recovery
Your APS Healthcare addiction recovery begins with the detoxification process, during which the you may experience a range of withdrawal symptoms:
- Trembling or shakiness
- Nausea and vomiting
- Trouble sleeping
- Irritability and agitation
- Mood swings
- Loss of appetite
More serious symptoms can include mental confusion, seizures, high fevers, and hallucinations, and in rare cases the side effects of withdrawal can even be life-threatening. Some addiction treatment facilities offer medically supervised "rapid detox" which can help mitigate these symptoms and jumpstart your APS Healthcare addiction recovery, but due to what some still consider its experimental nature, this procedure may or may not be available under your particular insurance plan.
Types of Addiction Treatment Centers
The type of facility in which you'll receive treatment depends largely on the coverage you possess as well as your specific medical needs, but there are several main categories:
- Inpatient: A residential facility provides 24/7 supervision and removes you from the many temptations and stresses the real-world living presents
- Outpatient: For patients who need to balance school, family, and work obligations while obtaining treatment, outpatient facilities offer flexibility without compromising care
- Continued Care: Often provided in addition to more intensive initial treatment, continuing care options like transitional housing, 12-step programs, and group therapy ensure you stay on the right track and maintain your hard-won sobriety.
