Can I Afford Percocet Detox?
If you are struggling with a Percocet addiction you might be tempted to ask: can I afford Percocet detox? The harsh reality is that you cannot afford not to! Percocet addiction affects millions of individuals and next to OxyContin it is the most abused of opiate narcotics. You may have already experienced the effects of Percocet addiction in your relationships with family, friends and colleagues, or perhaps you are on the brink of losing your job or facing legal consequences. Getting help now will save you in the long run.
What are the Options for Percocet Detox?
While there are other options available for Percocet detox (including self-reporting to an outpatient clinic and the use of oral medication) that are relatively inexpensive; these methods have certain drawbacks that can be a hindrance to success in recovery. For example the cost of an outpatient clinic to receive Methadone or Suboxone in order to detox from Percocet may be government funded and be very cheap. On the other hand, there is little to no medical supervision and reports of individuals staying on the drugs for many years after there is no longer a reason to take them indicate that the person is just exchanging one addiction for another.
The Most Preferred Method for Percocet Detox
An inpatient Percocet detox will help you get back on track by removing the drug toxins from your body. While there are several different methods to an inpatient Percocet detox, the one most recommended by physicians is an intravenous (IV) therapy medical detox. IV therapy incorporates the use of special medication to cleanse the system, while at the same time controlling the withdrawal symptoms that begin once you stop using Percocet. For many individuals addicted to Percocet, detox is the only option to regaining control of their life.
The Price of Private Percocet Detox
A stay in a detox facility that provides IV therapy medical detox for Percocet addiction will last about seven to ten days and cost from a few hundred to a couple thousand dollars per day – depending on the center. There are of course luxury detox facilities where the same stay may cost many, many thousands of dollars per day (some as high as $30,000 per day); however a stay in a very nice private detox facility with some extra amenities will cost about $1000 per day.
Insurance Will Pay for Part of It
When you weigh whether or not you can afford Percocet detox; don’t forget to consider the fact that insurance will pay for part of it. Changes in healthcare laws with the Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act (MHPAEA) and the Affordable Care Act (ACA) made the ability to get help for substance abuse and for it to be covered by insurance providers mandatory. Insurance providers have to give the same percent coverage for substance use disorders that they provide for other medical illnesses.
