Ambetter of NC: Health Insurance for Drug and Alcohol Rehab Centers

As the country struggles with high instances of substance use disorder, drug and alcohol addiction in North Carolina is slightly less prevalent than across the rest of the U.S.1 Specifically, the percentage of those aged 12 or older in North Carolina who reported past-year substance use disorder was 6.5%, which equates to 562,000 people, while the national average percentage was 7.4%.1

Also in North Carolina, about 405,000 people aged 12 and older reported past-year alcohol use disorder, 232,000 reported past-year illicit drug use disorder, 56,000 reported past-year opioid use, and 300,000 reported past-year misuse of prescription drugs.1

For many struggling with substance use disorder, getting drug rehab and addiction treatment can be the first step in recovery. In a single-day count in March 2019, there were 49,520 people aged 12 and older enrolled in rehab in North Carolina.1 Of those, 62% received treatment for only a drug problem, 10.8% received treatment for only an alcohol addiction, and 27.1% received treatment for both.1 Getting care, though, can come at a cost. Fortunately, if you have an Ambetter North Carolina health insurance plan, you may be able to use your insurance to cover some or all of the costs of rehab.

Addiction Treatment & Rehab Centers in North Carolina

Addiction Rehab Process

Addiction Rehab Process in North Carolina

Total Rehab centers in North Carolina

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 North Carolina

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.

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 North Carolina

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 North Carolina:

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 North Carolina

NC Substance Abuse Facts

The state of North Carolina was awarded $31 million in 2017 to help combat the current opioid overdose crisis.1 This government grant will provide addiction treatment to almost 3,000 people and is very much needed in a state whose overdose death rates continue to increase every year.1,2

Of the 1,567 drug overdose deaths in NC in 2015,2 about 80% were due to opioids, such as prescription painkillers and heroin.3,4,5

Looking at these numbers, it may not be surprising to learn that North Carolina has one of the highest number of painkiller prescriptions per person in the U.S. In 2012, there were 97 painkiller prescriptions per 100 people in the state.6

Prescription opioid use can be a slippery slope to heroin abuse; one study found that 86% of heroin users transitioned to the illicit drug after abusing opioid pain relievers.7 In North Carolina, 16,000 residents use heroin every year, a number that could continue to increase as prescriptions for opioids rise.8

Getting Addiction Treatment Help in NC

If you’re in need of addiction treatment, browse our listings to find a top rehab facility in North Carolina. Before you make your final decision, you should:

  • Consider the price of the program. Some facilities may be more expensive because of their facilities, location, and overall quality.
  • Understand the types of treatment programs available. If you’re unsure what kind of treatment or therapies are best for your situation, you can speak with your doctor or an addiction specialist. If you’re ready to take the next step, but need help weeding through the many options and finding the right fit for you, call .
  • Read reviews from past patients.

There are many NC addiction treatment centers to choose from—it’s up to you to take the first step.

Where Else Can I Find Help in NC?

It’s no secret that rehab can get expensive, especially if you need a longer stay in order to get sober. Don’t sacrifice your health to save some extra money; if you need financial assistance there are ways to make it happen, including.

  • Payment plans and sliding-scale fees: Ask the rehab center if they have discounted rates for low-income earners or installment plans that will reduce the burden of handing over a lump sum up front.
  • Health insurance: If you have private insurance, find a center that accepts your plan. Also ask whether they accept Medicaid or Medicare.
  • Personal loans and health care credit: If you need to pay more than you can afford at the start, you may be able to take out a loan to pay for it or apply for a health care credit card.
