Different Types of Harvard Pilgrim Substance Abuse Treatment
Major health insurance providers like Harvard Pilgrim tend to cover a variety of addiction treatment services. The most appropriate level of care depends heavily on your personal clinical needs. At Pine Tree Recovery Center we recommend beginning every journey of addiction recovery with a short stay in an inpatient detox center, and immediately transitioning into a higher level of care once you have been physically stabilized. To learn more about the different types of addiction treatment covered by Harvard Pilgrim insurance, today.
Harvard Pilgrim Medical Detox Programs or Facilities
Because drug and alcohol withdrawal can be unpredictable, a short stay in an inpatient detox center is recommended regardless of the severity of the substance use disorder. Most people stay in detox for between three days and two weeks, depending on what type of substance was being used, the frequency of use and the presence of any pre-existing conditions. Major health insurance providers like Harvard Pilgrim tend to cover a range of medical detoxification services, from medication assisted treatment to group therapy.
Harvard Pilgrim Inpatient or Residential Treatment Centers
Most people who attend addiction treatment benefit from an extended stay in a residential treatment center, which could last for between one and three months based on personal need. Clients receive around the clock care as they undergo intensive behavioral therapy and learn how to successfully stay sober once they transition back into fully independent living. It is a good idea to look for an inpatient treatment center that caters to your unique needs (for example, a dual diagnosis treatment center if you have a personal history of addiction and mental illness).
Harvard Pilgrim Partial Hospitalization Programs (PHP)
Partial hospitalization is a step down from residential rehab, and clients return home in the evenings once the day of treatment concludes. While PHP offers slightly more flexibility than rehab clients still have access to the same comprehensive treatment services. This is an ideal option for those who require intensive treatment but prefer to return home (or to a sober living house) at night. Most major health insurance providers cover some or all of the costs associated with privately operated PHP programs.
Harvard Pilgrim Outpatient Programs (IOP)
Intensive outpatient treatment is the most flexible level of clinical care, providing clients with the opportunity to fulfill personal responsibilities outside of treatment. Because most IOP programs meet for between three and five days a week for several hours each day, clients can work full-time or part-time, continue with their education pursuits or take care of other outside obligations. Because treatment groups meet less frequently, IOP also tends to be the most cost-effective option, and is ideal for those who are uninsured or underinsured.
