Alcohol Addiction in Michigan
Unfortunately, the last prevent report published by the CDC looks at numbers from nearly a decade ago. This report states that nearly 20% of adults participated in binge drinking during 2011. Binge drinking is a behavior that can cause negative side effects such as liver damage, nausea & headaches, and in some cases overdose is possible. Alcohol is a legal substance that takes the lives of too many Michigan residents every year.
Michigan Drug & Alcohol Addiction Treatment
The journey to recovery for a drug addict or alcoholic is a delicate and difficult one. Depending on the substance(s) used, how long the individual has been using, how much they use, and the support structure, the recovery process will vary greatly from one individual to another. The levels of care that you or your loved one may be admitted to during their recovery may include detox, inpatient care, and residential treatment. Typically, someone seeking treatment will be admitted to a detox facility and then will transition into lower levels of care based on their history with treatment, insurance coverage, and any special circumstances. If you or your loved one has been through treatment previously, then they may be referred to a higher level of care or a longer stay in treatment this time around.
Paying for Michigan Drug & Alcohol Treatment
Payment for local Michigan addiction treatment and out-of-state addiction treatment may vary based on coverage, if you plan to pay using health insurance. Most private insurance providers offer some level of coverage for treatment. Coverage may be greater if the treatment facility is in-network. If you are uninsured, this does not mean that quality treatment for substance use is out of reach. Consider one of these other options for payment of your treatment plan:
- Private Loan
- Scholarship Programs
