    Medical Drug & Alcohol Detox

    Short-term medical detoxification provides a safe, supervised place for you to move through the withdrawal process with medical and behavioral health professionals at your side.

    Inpatient/Residential Drug Rehab

    As the most intensive form of addiction rehab, residential treatment can be highly effective if you live with a dual diagnosis of addiction and a mental health disorder. 

    This type of treatment, also known as inpatient rehab, requires you to live at the treatment facility until you graduate from your recovery program. In addition to evidence-based treatments, most residential programs also focus on holistic therapies that encourage whole-person wellness.

    Outpatient Treatment

    Outpatient treatment is a more flexible alternative to residential rehab for individuals who’ve already completed inpatient treatment or who have a strong at-home support system. 

    Both partial hospitalization programs and intensive outpatient programs offer multiple treatment sessions per week. To enroll in these types of programs, you must be able to travel to and from the therapy facility for each session.

    Opioid & Alcohol Treatment Programs

    Alcohol addiction and opioid dependence often respond very well to a special form of therapy called medication-assisted treatment (MAT). 

    This program combines medications like Suboxone or methadone with behavioral therapy and counseling to encourage long-term recovery from chemical dependence.

    When you complete your rehab program, you’ll have access to aftercare services, which are designed to help you maintain your recovery long term. 

    Sober-living housing, group therapy, alumni groups, relapse prevention, and 12-step groups are just a few of the services you may have access to.

    Using Health Insurance For Addiction Treatment In Hazleton, Pennsylvania

    As an essential form of health care, substance use disorder treatment is typically covered by insurance. However, your health insurance policy will determine the level of coverage you have.

    • contacting rehab facilities to inquire about insurance coverage
    • contacting your insurance provider to discuss your plan’s benefits
    • reviewing your insurance details to learn more about your policy
