APS Healthcare Rehab and Heroin Detox Coverage

Does My APS Healthcare Policy Cover Heroin Detox?

If you're struggling with an addiction to heroin, please know that you're not alone. In fact, the National Institute of Health estimates that around 9 percent of the U.S. population has used or will misuse opiates in their lifetime. Prolonged use of heroin or other opiates can lead to physical dependency that is all too often so severe that it leads to health issues as well as complications in regards to your work, relationships, and school life. The consequences can be devastating, but there are treatment programs that can help. Your APS Healthcare heroin detox coverage depends on your particular insurance policy, but many policies include inpatient stays at covered addiction treatment facilities as well as follow-up care to help support a lifetime of sobriety.

How Can I Detox From Heroin?

Regardless of what your APS Healthcare heroin detox coverage actually covers, the first step towards sobriety is going through the detoxification process. When you stop using heroin, you will experience a number of withdrawal symptoms that may include:

  • Anxiety or nervousness
  • Agitation and/or mood swings
  • Muscle aches
  • Insomnia or sleep issues
  • Runny nose and teary eyes
  • Sweats
  • Yawning
  • Stomach cramps
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Goosebumps
  • Dilated pupils
  • Diarrhea

This withdrawal phase can be painful, with the severity of symptoms often reflective of the severity, frequency, and length of use. Medically supervised programs are available that help facilitate a painless detox by making the patient more comfortable (often through the use of sedatives and by giving the patient IV hydration and nutrition) but as many insurance companies still view these programs as experimental, they may or may not be included in your APS Healthcare heroin detox coverage.

How Much Will My Recovery Cost?

The financial cost of your rehabilitation and recovery is a reflection of several factors, in particular the type and length of your medically supervised treatment as well as your individual APS Healthcare covered detox plan. Inpatient programs will come with a higher price tag, while outpatient programs offer lower cost and more flexibility. Regardless of whether your rehabilitation is covered in its entirety or if you'll have to contend with out-of-pocket expenses, your well-being is 100 percent worth it. Check your benefits and embark on the long but rewarding road to sobriety now.
