Don’t let finances be an obstacle to your healthy future. Your insurance may cover your services.

What Is Medical Detox, and Why do I Need It?
Medically supervised detox provides 24-hour access to medical care as a patient withdraws from drugs or alcohol. Withdrawal can be extremely uncomfortable and even painful, with intense symptoms such as:
- Aches and pains
- Excessive sweating
- General feelings of restlessness and unease
In some cases, the symptoms of withdrawal are severe enough to create a life-threatening health crisis. Fears about the severity of withdrawal symptoms prevent some people from taking the first step to recovery: detox. However, it doesn’t have to be that way.
Medication-assisted detox eases symptoms and keeps patients more comfortable, relaxed, and emotionally positive. In addition, having the support and monitoring of an experienced medical team keeps patients safe as their bodies heal from months or years of poor self-care. A medical detox center focuses on the medical aspects related to substance use disorders without judgment. Medical programs use pharmacotherapies to address addiction and underlying conditions.
Who Needs Medically Assisted Detox?
Anyone can benefit from the care of a medically supervised detox program, but they are beneficial for those who fall into the following categories:
- Used medication to manage chronic pain
- Has been through withdrawal and detox at least once before
- Used drugs/heavily and for a long time
- Has other medical issues such as hypertension, heart problems, or diabetes
- Has co-occurring mental health disorders
There may be other conditions under which we may recommend a medically supervised detox program. Speak with your doctor or addiction specialist for more information.
Will My Insurance Coverage Pay for Detox?
Concerns about insurance coverage can create a barrier for people suffering from substance use disorders. In the recent past, coverage for addiction treatment of any kind was rare. Fortunately, that is changing as awareness of the importance of mental health grows.
Your insurance may pay up to 100% of the cost of medical detoxing, but that depends on your specific plan. Our medical detox in Jupiter, Florida, works with several different insurance providers to cover program costs, including:
- Aetna Health Insurance
- Anthem Health Insurance
- BCBS Health Insurance
- Beacon Health Insurance
- Cigna Health Insurance
- Empire Health Insurance
- GHI Florida
- United Optum Healthcare
Supervised detox is worth the cost, even if your insurance plan does not pay for it. Quitting any substance without support could be unsafe. In addition, the medical and emotional support available at a medical detox center does more than helping a patient manage their withdrawal symptoms.
Receiving a complete physical and mental-health assessment has a powerful impact on a patient’s long-term recovery success. During detox, co-occurring disorders frequently reveal themselves and are treated appropriately for the first time in a patient’s life.
Getting professional help with detoxing makes the transition to other treatment programs easier.
