Addiction can be very challenging and confusing to a family or love-one who’s trying to help the one they love. Trying to understand the treatment process and different treatment modalities can be frustrating at times. You want to be sure that your loved-one is getting the treatment that they need not just what the insurance company will cover.
Here at HUGS, our Life-Stabilization Retreat program removes the barriers to the healing process set by the insurance companies.
In his article Drug dependence, a chronic medical illness; Implications for treatment, insurance and outcomes evaluation. Dr. McLellan explains in the Journal of American Medical Association 284(13):16889-1685 the following.
“The traditional model of treating addiction has encouraged people to assume that patients entering treatment should be able to maintain lifelong abstinence following a single period of specialized treatment. Accordingly, policy makers allocate limited public health dollars for addiction rehab; insurers restrict the number of patient days and visits covered; treatment or rehab centers make no infrastructure allowance for ongoing monitoring; and families and the public become impatient and/or totally discouraged with patient relapses”.
Treatment facilities that are dependent on insurance provider dollars for their operational needs tend to build their programs around the 3 to 30 day coverage, instead of building around what the individual needs. According to the National Institute of Drug Abuse, research shows that an addicted person needs about 90 days in residential rehab for the best chance of a lasting recovery. This allows time for their brain chemistry to “reboot” and develop the tools it takes to sustain long-term success. In addition, a lasting recovery may involve on-going outpatient behavioral therapy and social support after the residential stay is complete.
The time it takes to successfully break the cycle of alcohol or drug abuse and begin to heal the brain and the body is not aligned with insurance companies’ treatment model expectations. In fact, the current insurance model actually impairs a treatment facility’s ability to help addicted individuals long-term. This is just one of the reasons addicted patients are in and out of treatment so many times, over the course of their lives. They have been set up to fail by the system that is treating them based on what the insurance company will reimburse for care.
