Before starting any type of treatment program, it is first important to detox from whatever substance or substances that you have been struggling with. Due to the nature of detoxing and the side effects that come along with it, it is important to undergo detox under the care and supervision of trained medical professionals.
Detoxing can be done at either a local medical facility, a dedicated detox center, or a treatment center that also offers detox services. Attempting to self-detox at home can be incredibly dangerous and even life-threatening. In addition, due to the severity of the side effects that come along with detoxing, many people find themselves relapsing as a way to deal with some of the symptoms associated with detoxing.
Tricare insurance plans cover detox for those who need it prior to entering into any of the following treatment programs:
Also known as residential treatment in some cases, inpatient treatment is typically the most popular treatment option for both treatment professionals and those who are seeking treatment. The main reason for this is that during inpatient treatment, you live at the facility for the duration of your treatment. This not only allows you to be under the constant care and supervision of trained medical professionals and licensed therapists, but it also ensures that you are beginning your treatment in a safe and structured environment without any of the temptations that could lead to a relapse.
Your Tricare health insurance plan may cover some or all of your inpatient treatment program based on the following:
- You suffering from a substance abuse disorder
- You suffer from severe symptoms that warrant inpatient treatment being required
- Your symptoms require you to be under round-the-clock care and supervision
If you are unsure if your Tricare plan covers inpatient treatment, you can always reach out to your Tricare representative or contact us at Live Free Recovery.
