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.
