What Does Allied Trades Cover?

The Allied Trades Assistance Program is a non-profit program created to contain costs and promote improved services for substance use disorder, mental health, and related issues to members of Philadelphia Trade Unions, retirees, and their dependents [1].

The confidential program and referral service matches people in need of help with the appropriate healthcare professionals for their mental health and addiction issues. ATAP insurance may cover all or at least part of the cost of addiction or mental health treatment.

ATAP offers coverage for the following:

Detox

People who have used highly addictive drugs or alcohol for prolonged periods typically require detox to rid their bodies of the substances in a safe and monitored way while mitigating some of the nastiest symptoms of withdrawal that often push users back into the arms of addiction. During detox, a healthcare team often prescribes medications to help counter the effects of withdrawal and alleviate some of the discomforts.

Some of the side effects of drug and alcohol withdrawal include [2]:

Alcohol withdrawal:

  • Intense worry and anxiety
  • Sweating
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Clammy skin
  • Headaches
  • Loss of appetite
  • Tremors
  • Insomnia
  • Nightmares
  • Increased heart rate
  • Severe agitation and mood swings
  • Hallucinations
  • Seizures

Opiate withdrawal:

  • Nausea
  • Sweating
  • Achy muscles
  • Runny nose
  • Anxiety and agitation
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Stomach cramps
  • Insomnia

Stimulant withdrawal:

  • Restlessness
  • Irritability
  • Fatigue
  • Feeling uneasy
  • Nightmares
  • Increased appetite
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thoughts

Benzodiazepine withdrawal:

  • Anxiety
  • Body tremors
  • Insomnia
  • Increased pulse
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Numbness or tingling
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Seizures

 Inpatient or Residential Rehab

The Allied Trades Assistance Program will also cover all or some of the cost to attend inpatient or residential rehab. This type of rehab is a live-in program where patients receive around-the-clock care and monitoring in a highly-structured environment.

There are a few factors that distinguish whether a patient will need inpatient or outpatient rehab, including:

  • The severity of their addiction or mental health issues
  • Their overall mental health
  • Family support
  • Whether their home environment is conducive to recovery or not
  • How the treatment is being paid for

Inpatient, or residential, rehab is generally recommended for people who:

  • Have tried outpatient treatment, but did not experience recovery
  • Have other mental health problems
  • Live somewhere that inhibits their ability to live a sober lifestyle (with other addicts or friends and family members who use, sell drugs, etc.)
  • Don’t live close to an outpatient facility

Outpatient Rehab

During outpatient rehab, patients live at home and attend treatment during the day or evening but are free to return home at the end of their session. Outpatient rehab is best for people who:

  • Have family, work, or school obligations that they don’t want to miss
  • Want to stay close to their loved ones during treatment
  • Live in environments that are conducive to recovery and sobriety
  • Find inpatient treatment too expensive

Medications and MAT

Medication-assisted treatment, or MAT, is part of many in-network drug recovery programs and has helped countless people recover from drug and alcohol addictions.

MAT combines medication treatment with behavioral therapy [3] for a comprehensive approach to addiction recovery. MAT has been proven to increase rates of [4]:

  • Treatment retention
  • Patient survival
  • Patients’ ability to gain or maintain employment

As mentioned, MAT is a comprehensive approach to recovery that combines FDA-approved medications with behavioral treatment, a combination that has been proven effective for the treatment of a number of substance abuse disorders. Detox is usually the first step of the MAT process to help patients stabilize as they withdraw from the drugs or alcohol. Once detox progresses, the healthcare team will introduce medication therapy. MAT is primarily used to treat Alcohol Use Disorder and Opioid Use Disorder with the following medications:

  • Acamprosate, which helps people avoid alcohol use.
  • Disulfiram, used to decrease drinking behavior once the patient has already started detoxing or abstaining from alcohol. The drug causes unpleasant symptoms when alcohol is consumed.
  • Naltrexone, used to block some of alcohol’s rewarding effects.
  • Buprenorphine, a partial opioid agonist works to reduce cravings and minimize opioid withdrawal’s nefarious side effects.
  • Methadone, which is a longer-acting, full opioid agonist used to reduce withdrawal symptoms and cravings.
  • Naltrexone is an opioid receptor antagonist which works to block opioids’ euphoric and sedating effects.

As part of MAT, patients will attend one or more of the following types of therapy:

  • Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
  • Contingency management (CM)
  • Community reinforcement approach (CRA)
  • Group therapy
  • Family therapy
