Magellan provides coverage for a comprehensive approach to recovery for patients battling substance abuse disorders . The approach includes:
Magellan also offers a focus on behavioral health, which is quite rare in the health insurance industry. This makes the company uniquely suited to provide several forms of care, particularly for people dealing with dual diagnoses.
In-network drug recovery with Magellan Behavioral Health covers all or some of the costs associated with the following treatments for drug and alcohol addiction:
When a chronic user of drugs and/or alcohol suddenly stops taking the substances, their body often goes into shock and, in turn, produces nasty withdrawal symptoms, including:
Sometimes, these symptoms are so severe the person feels the only way to stop their suffering is to use again. This is why supervised drug and alcohol detox is so important. It provides a safe and controlled environment for the patient to detox while being monitored by a team of healthcare professionals. Oftentimes, medication is administered to make the effects of the withdrawal more tolerable.
Supervised drug and alcohol detox is an excellent way for heavy users of drugs and/or alcohol to manage their symptoms of withdrawal and decrease their likeliness of relapsing.
As we just mentioned above, medications may be necessary to help counter some of the effects of drug and alcohol withdrawal. Those medications include:
Treatment center stays, often referred to as inpatient treatment, are best for people who have tried outpatient treatment before, but were not successful, people who do not live close to an outpatient facility, or people who live somewhere that is not conducive to sobriety.
During a treatment center stay, the patient has access to around-the-clock care and support, including medically-supervised drug detox.
Most people stay at inpatient drug treatment facilities for 30 days, but some facilities offer longer programs. The length of treatment depends on several factors, including:
Most treatment center stays also offer family programs to allow family members to participate in their loved one’s recovery as well as attend family therapy and activities.
Magellan Behavioral Health also covers dual-diagnosis treatment, which is especially important considering about 9.2 million adults in the U.S. have a co-occurring disorder or dual diagnosis .
Someone with a dual diagnosis suffers from a mental health disorder as well as a drug and/or alcohol problem. These conditions are strongly associated with one another, and it’s estimated that half of people with a mental health disorder will also have a drug or alcohol use disorder at some point in their lives, or the other way around .
It’s critically important that patients with dual diagnoses are treated for both conditions. Some common treatment options include behavioral therapies, medications, and support groups to offer emotional and social support.
Therapy is an important part of any drug or alcohol recovery program. Common therapies used to treat addiction include:
When a patient has successfully completed an inpatient recovery program, they will sometimes enter transitional care to “ease them” back into the real world. Transitional care allows patients to get back to their real-world duties while still having a safe place to land during the adjustment period, including therapy, medical monitoring, and peer support.
