Getting through withdrawals alone can be a dangerous prospect if you are not careful. Addiction withdrawal symptoms can create painful physical side effects and powerful cravings that are near impossible to resist. Suboxone treatment uses medication to reduce withdrawal symptoms and allow patients to detox from opioid pain medication and illicit opioids safely. A Suboxone treatment program is an essential part of any addiction treatment program that combines behavioral therapy and medication-assisted treatment for the best chance at recovery.
At Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery, we offer Suboxone treatment covered by Aetna and other top insurance providers. This medication is very effective at the beginning of treatment and as you continue through the program until it is no longer necessary. To learn more about how our Suboxone treatment program can benefit your recovery, call 833.448.0127 today for more information.
How Can Suboxone Treatment Help?
Suboxone is the brand name for medication that combines buprenorphine and naloxone to reduce opioid withdrawal symptoms. It comes in either a sublingual tablet or film that you let dissolve under your tongue or cheek. Dosage amounts can vary depending on which stage of treatment you are in. You should not start taking Suboxone for at least six hours since your last opioid use.
When combined with other medications as part of a medication-assisted treatment program, patients have an easier time getting through withdrawal symptoms and are able to better focus on their recovery.
Some of the withdrawal symptoms that Suboxone can relieve include:
- Muscle aches
- Bone pain
One of the active ingredients in Suboxone is buprenorphine, which is an opioid, and there is a small risk of forming an addiction if misused. That is why Suboxone treatment is only administered by medical staff. They will monitor your reaction to the medication and make adjustments to your dosage to give you the maximum benefits with minimal risk.
At Colorado Medication Assisted Recovery, we provide safe and effective addiction treatment for men and women in Denver and surrounding areas. Before starting Suboxone treatment, let us know if you are taking any of the following medications as they are known to cause complications:
- Cholesterol-lowering medications
- HIV-treatment drugs
- Oral contraceptives
Understanding Aetna Suboxone Coverage
Aetna provides coverage for substance abuse and mental health treatment programs. They offer several insurance plans with different levels of coverage and caps on coverage. Aetna understands that many patients will need additional treatment to help with lifelong recovery and base their plans on a patient’s needs instead of capping coverage after a certain amount of days.
Aetna Suboxone coverage includes substance abuse and mental health treatment programs that can include:
- Partial hospitalization program
- Intensive outpatient program
- Continuing care program
- Alumni program
Some programs will require pre-certification to ensure the program meets Aetna’s clinical criteria for coverage. To help with any out-of-pocket expenses, Colorado offers several grants and federal assistance programs.
