Medical Mutual Prescription Drug Addiction Treatment

If you or someone you care about seems to be suffering from prescription drug addiction, it can be very scary. It’s dangerous to undertake prescription drug detox on your own, but many people are concerned about whether they can afford the cost of prescription drug rehab on their own. The good news is that Medical Mutual Prescription Drug Detox is a feature of many insurance plans offered to individuals or through employers. Prescription drug treatment is an optional feature of all Medical Mutual plans, so it’s important to check your policy before committing.

Prescription drug abuse is an increasingly common issue, with more than 20 percent of Americans under age 26 reporting use of drugs for non-therapeutic or recreational purposes, according to the National Institute on Drug Abuse. The most commonly abused drugs include opioids such as OxyContin or Fentanyl, stimulants such as Ritalin or Adderall and central nervous system depressants such as Valium or Nembutal. These drugs are easy to come by since doctors write more than 250 million prescriptions per year for psychiatric drugs, according to Forbes.

Symptoms of prescription drug addiction cover a wide range of behaviors and reactions, including:

  • Depression
  • Low blood pressure
  • Decreased breathing rate
  • Sweating
  • Dizziness
  • Confusion
  • Dizziness or unsteady gait
  • Agitation
  • Irritability and restlessness
  • Impulsive behavior
  • Insomnia

There may be other signs and symptoms depending on the specific drug in use. Behaviors that may indicate the need for prescription drug rehab include stealing to cover the cost of drugs, unwarranted hostility, losing prescriptions or seeking prescriptions from more than one doctor. Medical Mutual Prescription Drug Detox can help regardless of the prescription drug that is causing the problem

If you suspect prescription drug addiction, your first step should be to talk to a doctor or medical professional who can help identify the need for treatment and the best way to undergo prescription drug detox. Medical Mutual Prescription Drug Detox coverage varies by policy and may also depend on whether or not you have used the benefit in the past. A doctor can work with Medical Mutual to identify your policy’s specific coverage. Medical Mutual Prescription Drug Detox usually covers both inpatient and outpatient treatment, although there may be limits on either the frequency or the covered amounts. Once you and your doctor know the coverage you have available for prescription drug rehab, you can work together to identify the best possible treatment plan to help you recover and regain your health.
