However, if you fear the worst and want to prepare or understand what to expect with emergency drug treatment, there are some useful tips and things to keep in mind.
No matter the substance, addiction can be a challenging disease to recover from. We can help find the best treatment for you or your loved one, even on short notice. Let us make this demanding journey a little easier for you.
Although there can be any number of situations where a person requires emergency drug rehab, this scenario typically occurs when a person with an addiction needs it due to a medical emergency or another form of serious, potentially life-threatening, or life-altering motivation.
That being said, some reasons are more frequently occurring than others, and each is an equally valid reason to seek emergency drug treatment.
When someone has an overdose, they typically require immediate medical assistance – often to save their life. Immediate rehab is necessary in this case, usually for one of two reasons.
First, the individual has lost all control over their substance use disorder, and not placing them in rehab could lead to further overdoses.
Second, the individual may be experiencing suicidal ideation, in which case rehab is necessary to save their life from themselves.
A common belief with substance use disorder is that a person cannot be helped until they reach rock bottom.
While this is not always the case, someone at rock bottom needs immediate assistance, especially if someone is unwilling to get treatment before hitting rock bottom.
This reason can be the most controversial and also be met with the most resistance.
However, if one feels it is in a person’s best interest to receive treatment, intervening and placing that person in immediate care may be the best option.
Whether it’s the loss of a job or a loved one, a person with substance use disorder who experiences an immense loss or might experience a loss may require immediate treatment.
Loss and negative emotions can make the addictive behavior worse, so immediate treatment may be the best option for their health and safety.
Fortunately, most plans in the United States must include coverage for mental and behavioral health services, including substance abuse treatment. However, the level of coverage can vary.
Each plan is different, and you’ll have to find out what your plan covers. If you call our number today, our admission specialist partners can help you obtain a Verification of Benefits (VOB). This document will have all of the information you need to begin the process of finding treatment.
If you do not currently have insurance through an employer or any of the larger insurance companies, your local state government – along with the federal government can help provide mental and behavioral healthcare, including treatment for substance abuse.
On a state level, for those under the age of 55, Medicaid is a great option to try. Medicaid will cover emergency rehab under very certain situations.
Every state Medicaid plan for emergency rehab is different. In Arizona, for example, the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System is written as AHCCCS but referred to as “access.” AHCCCS is essentially Medicaid available for any Arizona residents who qualify, those living at or below the Federal Poverty Level.
If you think you may qualify for AHCCCS, apply and look into what treatment they may be able to cover for you or your loved one.
