Path to Recovery with Aetna
It is vital to find a treatment program that will help you with each level of care. Detox is one of the most important steps of the recovery process as it helps clients get started on the right foot and helps them deal with withdrawal and the early signs of sobriety. Following detox, a stay at a 30+ day inpatient facility will help clients learn how to live sober and get acquainted with their new lifestyle in a safe, medically monitored environment.
After initial residential treatment, clients can step down to PHP and IOP levels of care where they can still see addiction experts and clinicians each day on a regular basis but don’t need the advanced level of care that inpatient offers.
Addiction treatment is never finished, it is something that clients will have to fight every day of their lives, but getting set up with a continuing care program that offers alumni events and support groups can help make the process easier to handle.
All of these levels of care are available at Reflection’s Northern California rehab.
Aetna SBIRT: Screening, Brief Intervention & Referral to Treatment
Along with Aetna alcohol and drug rehab coverage, Aetna’s SBIRT program also can provide clients with initial care offerings. It allows health care staff to screen people who may not be seeking help, but whose substance abuse may cause health problems. It is meant to help those who may not qualify for the clinical definition of substance use disorder, but need assistance.

Aetna for Alcohol Rehab
Alcohol use disorder is a medical condition characterized by an individual's inability to stop despite facing numerous social and personal problems due to their alcohol use. This problem affects over 14 million American adults. At Reflections, we understand the need for everyone struggling with alcohol use to get the help they need. That’s why we work with insurances like Aetna to provide affordable alcohol rehab coverage and quality evidence-based care.
Aetna for Drug Rehab
The Opioid Crisis has ravaged the United States, leading to over 80,000 opioid overdose deaths in 2021. Unfortunately, despite the Opioid Epidemic being around for over two decades, the problem has only continued to get worse due to prescription opioids, synthetic opioids, and heroin. Reflections sees this problem and aims to be a part of the solution.
But we won’t just stop at opioids, we are here to help all those struggling with drug addiction problems. We work with many insurance companies, including Aetna, to increase accessibility to our resources and ensure you or your loved one can get the help you need.
Medication-Assisted Treatment & Aetna Rehab
Early sobriety can be difficult for some, especially detox. However, medication-assisted treatment options allow clients to use FDA-approved medications to help them overcome the symptoms of early withdrawal and block cravings that often lead to relapse.
Does Aetna Cover Suboxone?
Suboxone is an approved treatment for all members insured through an employer-based plan. However, if you have Aetna Medicare or Aetna Medicaid, you’ll need prior authorization completed by a health care provider.
Aetna Methadone Coverage
Along with Suboxone, methadone is another form of MAT that is covered under some Aetna insurance plans. According to their site, it is covered under medical plans, not pharmacy plans, as it is provided at methadone clinics.
Aetna and Dual Diagnosis Treatment
