Group and Pensions Administrators Rehab and Heroin Detox Coverage

Heroin use, like the abuse of prescription medications, is increasing dramatically. If you find yourself a victim of this trend, you can get out. Consider your options for treatment. With your Group and Pensions Administrators heroin detox coverage, you give yourself the ability to choose life.

Heroin Abuse on the Rise

Often, drug addictions are related. In particular, the abuse of opioid painkillers and the use of heroin are on the rise, especially in young people. Experts argue that those who started out using opioids sometimes end up switching to heroin abuse. There are about 670,000 heroin users in the United States, up from half as many ten years ago. Many people who used opioids switched to heroin because their bodies built up a tolerance to the prescription pain medications. However, heroin carries with it the same risk of addiction and overdose. No matter how you came to heroin addiction, you are better off if you get help for it.

Heroin Detox

For those with opiate addictions, withdrawal is terrible to experience. You go through horrible feelings as your body reacts to the lack of the drug in your body. However, there are a few approaches using opiate-blocking medications that can help you to rapidly detoxify without a great deal of struggle. Some doctors enroll patients in a short-term treatment program that has become known as “painless detox.” They use the drug naltrexone, which is known as an opioid antagonist, to block a person’s dependence on opioids or opiates like heroin. In some cases, the people undergoing the detoxification will be put under general anesthesia and medically supervised for a number of hours while their bodies rapidly eliminate the drugs from their systems.

Coverage For Detox

This approach to detox is somewhat controversial in some circles, so your Group and Pensions Administrators insurance may not cover it. However, you can check your schedule of benefits for other services related to drug rehabilitation, including:

  • therapy
  • rehab
  • treatment of medical conditions related to heroin addiction

Contact your Nurse NavigatorSM to learn more about the benefits available to you, and if the Disease Management program is also appropriate for your needs.

Heroin addiction could cost you your life if you do not act now. Consider your Group and Pensions Administrators heroin detox coverage, and look at painless detox or rehab to get you back to health.
