Humana Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment
Prescription drugs are vital to the world of health care and the patients who need the health benefits they provide. These drugs can improve health, eliminate disease, curb crippling symptoms, and even save lives. But they can also be abused, sometimes in situations where the patient doesn't even realizing it's happening until it's too late. Prescription drug addiction can be debilitating, requiring more and more strength as tolerance increases. Some patients resort to buying drugs on the street or forging prescriptions because of their dependence on the drug. These addictions can lead to drug overdose, which can be deadly.
Three Classes of Drugs Often Abused
The National Institute on Drug Abuse says the three classes of prescription drugs often abused are pain-killing opioids, central nervous system depressants used for anxiety and sleep disorders, and stimulants used for attention deficit disorder and narcolepsy. These drugs can be very habit-forming, and these addictions can be very difficult to deal with on your own. That's why it's important to have help.

Humana Prescription Drug Detox Can Help
If you have a health insurance policy through Humana and are suffering with prescription drug addiction, you can get help with Humana prescription drug detox. The type of treatment, and how long-lasting, will depend on your individual insurance policy, the severity of your addiction, and your doctor's recommendation.
Whether you receive Humana prescription drug detox in a residential treatment facility for inpatient treatment or treated on an outpatient basis depends on your individual insurance policy with Humana, the severity of your prescription drug addiction, and the recommendation of your doctor.
Inpatient or Outpatient Treatment?
If you receive inpatient treatment, you will be protected from temptation, in a facility where help is available 24/7, with peers who understand the experiences you've had and what it has taken to get to the point where you're seeking help. On the other hand, if you are able to withstand the temptation and have family and work responsibilities you need to take care of during your treatment, outpatient treatment may be the best route for you. Your Humana representative can help you find out more about which Humana prescription drug detox is right for you.
If your policy doesn't cover all of your recommended treatment, you can elect to pay the balance yourself. Your treatment center may offer a payment plan to help you.
