Does Medicare Cover Seniors for Drug Addiction Treatment?
Seniors need to pay close attention to their health and should avoid problems with alcohol
and drug abuse
. There are times, though, when medications need to be prescribed for anxiety, depression, or pain that may result in an addiction. Thankfully, medically necessary drug addiction treatment for seniors
is covered by Medicare.
Tarzana Treatment Centers accepts Medicare
for medically necessary drug addiction treatment. Our addiction treatment services include medical detoxification, residential and outpatient treatment, Vivitrol, and mental health treatment for those suffering from co-occurring disorders. We also accept Medicare for preventative services at our clinics in the San Fernando Valley and Antelope Valley.
More than ever, seniors are falling into the trap of prescription drug addiction. Through no fault of their own, they will follow doctors’ orders and become dependent on a drug. The result is an addiction to one of several drugs like Xanax, Vicodin, Valium, Ambien, Ativan, or Klonopin. Withdrawal from these drugs can range from uncomfortable to dangerous, so these individuals should find a quality prescription drug addiction treatment center.
Quality addiction treatment for seniors means that counselors and facilities can accommodate their clients’ special needs. Aging minds and bodies react differently to withdrawals. Staff needs to be trained to work with individuals who have decades of life experience, which requires specialized counseling. And, for your safety, the medical staff must know how to administer detoxification medications to seniors.
Tarzana Treatment Centers provides this specialized care for seniors in addiction treatment. Our counselors are friendly, and can help you to understand your addiction. Mental health disorders often go untreated with the senior population due to a stigma fear. Our psychology staff understands this, and is ready to provide you with confidential and sensitive therapy.
