APS Healthcare Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment
Prescription drug abuse and addiction are very serious problems in this country. Many prescription drugs that someone may need for very legitimate reasons are addictive. It can be difficult for someone to stop taking those drugs when they are no longer necessary for the patient's health or comfort. When people become addicted, they may begin to abuse the drug, taking more of it than is prescribed, and even doctor shopping and falsifying prescriptions to get it. Addition and abuse of prescription drugs can lead to health issues as well as criminal charges, and everyone from children to the elderly are susceptible to becoming addicted.
When addiction turns into abuse and becomes a problem, detox and rehab are needed for the person to make a full recovery. Here's what you need to know about APS Healthcare prescription drug detox coverage.

APS Healthcare Prescription Drug Detox Coverage...What is Available?
Detox is necessary before rehab can begin. This is the process of getting the last of the addictive substance out of a person's body, so they can begin to learn to live without it. There may be serious side effects of withdrawal associated with detox, so it should normally be done in a rehab facility, where medical professionals are available to help a person get through it. APS does pay for detox for prescription drug treatment. The amount it pays and how long it will pay for it all depends on your individual plan. APS also covers rehab after the detox period is over. Again, coverage amounts for prescription drug rehab depend on your individual plan.
