Anthem Insurance for Alcohol and Drug Addiction Treatment in Colorado

Colorado is known for its beautiful natural scenery, wildlife, and the wide variety of activities available to residents and visitors alike. Substance misuse is a serious problem throughout the United States, including in Colorado. Between 2017 and 2019, 4.6% of Colorado residents over the age of 12 misused prescription pain relievers in the previous year.1 In addition, 8.5% of Coloradans age 12 and older struggled with alcohol use disorder in that same timeframe.

If you struggle with substance misuse and are looking for a way to change your life, it’s essential to get professional treatment. You might wonder if you can use Anthem coverage for drug and alcohol rehab in Colorado. Fortunately, using Anthem for addiction treatment in Colorado can get you the help you need.

Anthem Insurance Coverage for Inpatient and Outpatient Rehab Treatment in Colorado

Using Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield for rehab in Colorado is easier than you might think. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) is a law that made significant changes to how health insurers offer coverage.

Addiction Treatment & Rehab Centers in Colorado

Addiction Rehab Process

Addiction Rehab Process in Colorado

Total Rehab centers in Colorado

Addiction treatment programs are beneficial for anyone struggling with drug and/or alcohol abuse or addiction. Drug and alcohol rehab is a long-term process and recovery can look different for everyone since no two people have the same exact needs or situation. Typically, when an individual enters rehab, it will occur in stages that includes detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Self Assessment

Substance Abuse Assessments for Drug and Alcohol Addiction in Colorado

Admission into a drug and alcohol addiction treatment program is an important part of the treatment process. The intake and evaluation components are key in determining each patient’s individual needs to design an appropriate, effective treatment plan. The treatment process should be comprised of detox, treatment, and aftercare, if necessary, and meet the specific needs of the patient.

Individuals will be diagnosed by a treatment specialist using the DSM-IV Diagnostic Criteria for Substance Abuse. Diagnosis of co-occurring disorders or dual diagnosis (having both a substance use disorder and a mental health condition) should also occur at the intake and evaluation stage to assess the addiction problem, general health status, living situation, and any other concerns.

Rehab Centers

Inpatient treatment involves living onsite at a rehab facility and can last anywhere from 30 days to 60 or 90 days. Your stay in rehab will vary depending on factors like disease severity, your mental and physical health, and prior treatment. Services such as detox, treatment, medications, and 24/7 monitoring may be provided, if necessary.

Patients undergoing outpatient treatment can live at home and travel to a facility for treatment session/s. Outpatient care can vary in its level of intensity and may transition from high to low levels based on the patient’s treatment plan. Outpatient treatment can take place in various settings including partial hospitalization, intensive outpatient, standard outpatient, or outpatient visits with a counselor, therapist, or clinician.

Detox Centers

Detox Centers in Colorado

Detox is the first step of the recovery process for individuals diagnosed with a substance use disorder. Detox will usually take 3, 5, 7, or 10 days, depending on the patient’s needs and situation. Medical detox provides evaluation and oversight by treatment professionals and involves the use of medication to relieve discomfort, taper off drugs or alcohol, and stabilize the patient. Once detox is complete, patients typically enter inpatient or outpatient treatment where issues such as co-occurring medical or mental health conditions can be managed and treated.

Recovery and Aftercare in Colorado:

Recovery and aftercare are important steps in the lifelong process that begins once addiction treatment is complete. The ongoing support that aftercare provides can help prevent relapse and increase chances of long-term recovery success. Aftercare can include mutual support groups, individual/group/family therapy, and sober living homes.

Information about rehab in Colorado

CO Substance Abuse Facts

According to the 2013-2014 Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration’s (SAMHSA) National Survey on Drug Use and Health, Colorado was the only state that ranked in the top 10 for heavy consumption of all of the following: marijuana, cocaine, alcohol, and opioid painkillers.1

In the 2014-2015 SAMHSA survey, the number of Colorado residents age 12 and older who reported using certain substances in the past year was above—and in some cases well above— the national average: 2–4

  • 09% used marijuana (vs. 13.35% nationally)
  • 75% used cocaine (vs. 1.75% nationally)
  • 38% used heroin (vs. 0.33% nationally)
  • 22% used alcohol (vs. 52.2% nationally)

From 2000 to 2015, there were 10,552 drug overdose deaths in Colorado.6 In almost every year the rate of overdose death rose and was much higher than the national rate. In 2000, there were 351 overdose deaths, and the age-adjusted rate was 7.8 deaths per 100,000 population. In 2015, there were 880 deaths, and the rate increased to 15.7. Opioid-related overdose deaths made up a large portion of deaths and went up significantly in the 15-year period.6

Recreational marijuana was legalized for sale on Jan. 1, 2014. According to a report from the Colorado Department of Public Health, an estimated 31% of young adults used marijuana at least once in the last 30 days in 2014 compared to 21% in 2006. About 12.6% of adolescents between the ages of 12 and 17 reported using marijuana within the last 30 days in 2014 compared to 10.2% in 2009.6 Despite its state-wide legal status, marijuana remains illegal at the federal level, and researchers have found evidence that problem use can develop into physical dependence.7

Getting Addiction Treatment Help in CO

Finding the right “fit” in terms of treatment will depend on your insurance, medical situation, substance of abuse, addiction history, and support system. The best program for you could be in your hometown, or it could be in another state.

Whether you call Colorado home or have chosen it as your destination for rehab, we can help you take the first step toward healing from addiction. Browse through our directory to see options for inpatient and outpatient treatment centers, and the amenities they offer. Or you can give us a call today at to speak with a support specialist about any questions you may have.

Where Else Can I Find Help in CO?

If you don’t have health insurance or are afraid you can’t cover the cost of rehab, don’t worry. Other options exist.

Get in touch with drug and alcohol rehab centers you’re interested in and ask whether they have sliding scale payment programs that modify the cost based on what you can pay. Many treatment facilities will also work out a payment installment plan with you, so you can avoid paying a lump sum up-front.

You can also research state-funded rehabs or see if you qualify for federal and state healthcare programs such as Medicare or Medicaid. Some recovery centers accept these forms of insurance.
