Signs of Addiction


Signs of addiction include the following:

  • Loss of Control: Drinking or drugging more than a person wants to, for longer than they intended, or despite telling themselves that they wouldn’t do it this time.
  • Neglecting Other Activities: Spending less time on activities that used to be important (hanging out with family and friends, exercising, pursuing hobbies or other interests) because of the use of alcohol or drugs; drop in attendance and performance at work or school.
  • Risk Taking: More likely to take serious risks in order to obtain one’s drug of choice.
  • Relationship Issues: People struggling with addiction are known to act out against those closest to them, particularly if someone is attempting to address their substance problems; complaints from co-workers, supervisors, teachers or classmates.
  • Secrecy: Going out of one’s way to hide the amount of drugs or alcohol consumed or one’s activities when drinking or drugging; unexplained injuries or accidents.
  • Changing Appearance: Serious changes or deterioration in hygiene or physical appearance – lack of showering, slovenly appearance, unclean clothes.
  • Family History: A family history of addiction can dramatically increase one’s predisposition to substance abuse.
  • Tolerance: Over time, a person’s body adapts to a substance to the point that they need more and more of it in order to have the same reaction.
  • Withdrawal: As the effect of the alcohol or drugs wear off the person may experience symptoms such as: anxiety or jumpiness; shakiness or trembling; sweating, nausea and vomiting, insomnia, depression, irritability, fatigue or loss of appetite and headaches.
  • Continued Use Despite Negative Consequences: Even though it is causing problems (on the job, in relationships, for one’s health), a person continues drinking and drugging.

Health Insurance Coverage for Addiction Treatment



This is TLCOWNER with Cycles of Change Recovery.

Now is the time to upgrade your existing plan or purchase a new private insurance plan if you or a loved one is struggling with addiction and have been unable to get into a quality treatment program because you have state funded insurance (Medicaid/Medi-Cal) or if you have limited coverage with your current insurance provider.

When shopping for an insurance plan that will cover your addiction treatment, please keep in mind that it is typically a top tier or premium PPO plan such as a Gold or Platinum plan that will most likely give you the coverage and the flexibility to go to the treatment center of your choice. 

Insurance plans vary from state to state. It is imperative that you have an in-depth conversation with an insurance agent or broker in your area, or with healthcare navigators who can be found at many local or regional nonprofit healthcare organizations, who are trained to discuss your coverage questions. Be honest and open so they can help you get the best plan to meet your healthcare needs. 

5 Key Things to have and know about your coverage

  1. PPO plans allow you more freedom to go where you choose and offer both in-network and out-of-network coverage
  2. Covers All Levels of Care (detox, residential treatment, inpatient treatment and outpatient treatment) for mental health and substance use for both in-network and out-of-network;
  3. Has a low deductible in the $500 to $2,500 range for in-network and $2,000 to $5,000 for out-of-network; 
  4. Offers co-insurance coverage of between 80% and 100% for in-network providers and 50% to 70% for out-of-network providers. Know what your co-payment amounts will be for in-network providers for all levels of care.
  5. Offers prescription drug coverage.

Cash pay prices for a quality residential treatment program can range from $15,000-$40,000 for 30 days of treatment. A monthly insurance policy will most likely cost several hundred dollars. Often, it is much more affordable for family members who are willing to help to pay the monthly insurance premium so their loved one can get treatment than to provide other types of financial support.
