The opioid crisis has become one of the most prevalent public health issues in the United States in recent years. Resources dedicated to opioid treatment programs are finite and patients seeking care for opioid use disorder often struggle with mitigating the costs if they are uninsured, or obtaining approval for addiction-related care from their health insurance providers.
Standard opioid addiction treatment costs can run about $6,552 per year with daily visits for methadone treatments, or $5,980 per year for twice-weekly visits and buprenorphine treatments. Naltrexone and appropriate drug counseling can cost $14,112 per year. This has led to a rise in Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) programs that are more affordable and accessible than traditional clinics, and can serve a larger amount of patients as a result.
Recovery Delivered offers widely-available and effective drug and alcohol addiction medications. Suboxone combines buprenorphine and naloxone is the most effective medication available to patients combating opioid addiction and can be prescribed and delivered directly to the patient without needing to visit a physical clinic through our direct mail delivery system. If you’re tired of the amount of time and stress your medication assisted treatment program brings you, here are five reasons why you should consider doing so.
1. Recovery On Your Timline.
It can be difficult to schedule clinic visits and wait to be seen when you have to go to work, pick up your children from school, and take care of other obligations requiring your attention. Because you don’t need to go to a clinic in person, you can schedule your appointments with a doctor or nurse practitioner at a time that works for you. Having to work during the only hours a clinic is open can make difficult to make your follow-up visits consistently, but you don’t need to worry about that with our programs.
Recovery Delivered also offers group therapy and 12-step programs from the convenience and privacy of your home, if you have a busy schedule and find it difficult to keep your clinic appointments.
2. Medication Delivery
You don’t need to visit a clinic or pharmacy to wait to get a prescription filled. All medications are delivered to you so you don’t need to spend additional time obtaining them.
3. Lower Cost
We accept Medicaid and state programs, as well as most private insurance plans, and can work with you to find out how much of your MAT program your insurance provider will cover.
If you are uninsured or your insurance does not cover addiction treatment, Recovery Delivered programs cost up to 50% less than traditional programs at physical clinics. We can also obtain medications for less than what you would pay with most other healthcare providers due to our supplier relationships.
While seeking help for your addiction is a vital step to getting your life back, there is a stigma surrounding addiction and related treatment. You may not want others to know that you are seeking treatment.
You may also feel uncomfortable going to a physical facility for treatment, or the facility’s location. You can seek treatment in the safety and comfort of your own home with Recovery Delivered, and your privacy is also not compromised.
5. No More Travel to Clinics.
After the cost of treatment and medications themselves, one of the most significant barriers to MAT and addiction treatment is travel.
If you are in a rural area where clinics are hard to come by, or require long trips to get treated, telemedicine can eliminate the cost and hassles associated with traveling to get treatment. For patients with disabilities and/or lack of transportation, our telemedicine programs can work for you no matter where you are. Making your weekly follow-up visits and asking questions about your treatment is always a click or phone call away.
You can conserve the gas in the car for getting to work, seeing your loved ones, and other pressing needs instead of having to allocate your budget towards traveling several hours per week to seek treatment.
There are several medical treatments where you need to be face to face with a healthcare provider. However, for addiction treatment, going to a clinic is becoming an outdated form of providing this type of care and counseling. With the advent of smartphones and inexpensive devices, all it takes is a few clicks or swipes to speak to a doctor or join a group therapy session. The pharmacy can now come to you as well with mail-order medications and eliminate the amount of traveling that you have to do to get treatment, which equates to time and money you put towards starting on your new path.
