Addiction is expensive. It is far, far more expensive than drug treatment.An oxycodone addiction can easily cost someone $400 or more a week, not including loss of work that begins to occur more rapidly as the addiction progresses. Not only is it monetarily expensive, but the cost and toll on your health and well-being over time is far too high a price for anyone to pay. The damage that addiction can do to your family is immense. Many families have had to pay the medical bills of addicts or the court costs associated with the legal problems that often accompany addiction. Statistics do not lie. It is only a matter of time before your addiction becomes too expensive a price to bear.
A better question to ask is: can you afford not to get treatment?
We understand that when you have had a long-term addiction your available cash reserves are either low or non-existent. This is why we try to work with both insurance companies and families to make rehab work for you. We help you find a program that offers Affordable Drug and Alcohol Treatment.
The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 states that your insurance company must treat substance abuse and addiction the same as any other medical procedure or surgery. What this means for you is that if your insurance company does cover treatment, your deductible will be no greater than it would be for any other hospital stay. Insurances such as Aetna, Cigna, Blue Cross BlueShield all have coverage plans for drug addiction treatment. Some employers also have special benefit programs for the treatment of addiction. Moreover, it is also possible to look into life insurance and how it can help cover your drug treatment and alcoholism treatment.
