Aetna Drug And Alcohol Treatment Programs
Are you searching for an Aetna covered drug and alcohol rehab program for yourself or a loved one? At Absolute Awakenings, we are here to help you recover from addiction.
Finding a treatment center that accepts your insurance is a process that does not need to be frustrating. If you have begun researching professional drug and alcohol treatment programs, the easiest way to narrow down the decision-making on what program is best is to have your insurance explained to you first, so that you know what costs are covered.
Fortunately, our treatment programs accept numerous insurance plans, including Aetna. As an Aetna covered drug treatment center, our personalized programs at Absolute Awakenings approach substance use disorders with a solution-focused mentality. We get to the core of your addiction and work hand-in-hand to heal the mind, body, and spirit.
Understanding Why Insurance Plans
Cover the Cost of Addiction Treatment
The Mental Health Parity and Addiction Equity Act of 2008 (MHPAEA) increased the amount of coverage that health insurance plans provide for substance use disorder (SUD), also known as addiction. It mandated that insurance plans must consider a behavioral health diagnosis, such as Substance Use Disorder which is a chronic disease.
The parity act requires that health insurance policies provide equal coverage to mental health or behavioral health diagnoses as they would to another chronic illness such as diabetes, cancer, and others. At Absolute Awakenings Treatment Center, we work with most major health insurance plans to make sure our patients have an opportunity to take advantage of our treatment programs.
Aetna Insurance Benefits for Addiction Treatment Coverage
Many people are surprised to hear that Aetna insurance covers the cost of substance abuse treatment. We are an Aetna drug and alcohol rehab center, allowing policyholders to focus on getting better and overcoming their chemical dependency, instead of worrying about the financial implications of an Aerna drug rehab stay. According to the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services:
The MHPAEA is a federal law that generally prevents group health plans and health insurance issuers that provide mental health or substance use disorder (MH/SUD) benefits from imposing less favorable benefit limitations on those benefits than on medical/surgical benefits. (CMS)
The MHPAEA mandates that since addiction and alcoholism are considered chronic diseases of the mind and emotions that stem from multiple influencers, they must include behavioral health benefits in their insurance plans. Aetna insurance is one of the leading health insurance companies that offer substantial coverage for Substance Use Disorders and covers numerous treatment services.

Our Commitment is to Provide Evidence-Based Addiction Treatment
If you or a loved one is suffering from an addiction to drugs, alcohol, or both, our programs rely on advanced treatment methods and therapy that are proven to help someone end their SUD. Evidence-based forms of treatment include cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). CBT and DBT are the most renowned forms of psychotherapy that target the behaviors and emotions people experience who are diagnosed with SUD. Absolute Awakenings provides evidence-based types of treatment in the following Aetna covered drug rehab programs:
- Partial Care
- Intensive Outpatient
- Co-occurring Disorders
- Trauma-Informed Care Program
- Recovery Capital
Each client meets regularly with a licensed substance abuse therapist who is certified in CBT or DBT methods. Evidence-based forms of therapy, such as CBT, are well regarded by the National Institute of Drug Abuse.
Cognitive-behavioral strategies are based on the theory that in the development of maladaptive behavioral patterns like substance abuse, learning processes play a critical role. Individuals in CBT learn to identify and correct problematic behaviors by applying a range of different skills that can be used to stop drug abuse and to address a range of other problems that often co-occur with it. Research indicates that the skills individuals learn through cognitive-behavioral approaches remain after the completion of treatment. (NIDA)
Why Getting Someone Help Quickly Is Vital
It is critical that when an addict or alcoholic asks for help that they receive that help as soon as possible. Because addiction causes a person to need drugs or alcohol every day, it is tough for these individuals to stop suddenly. Many people with a Substance Use Disorder express a desire to get clean and sober, but it usually does not last more than a day or two. This is not their fault. Timing matters when someone asks for help. A change of heart and mind can happen in a matter of seconds or minutes before they get professional help.
