Southern California Sunrise Recovery Center is proud to announce that we are now In-Network with Aetna insurance for detox and residential addiction treatment. This puts on a short list of Orange County Drug & Alcohol Rehab Providers that accept all Aetna insurance policies.

Aetna Drug & Alcohol Rehab Coverage

If you are struggling with an addiction you may be wondering if Aetna will cover the cost of rehab. We are able to offer detoxification (detox) and inpatient residential addiction treatment as an in-network provider. This means that if you have an in network HMO or EPO Aetna insurance policy and are struggling with drug or alcohol addiction, you can be accepted at our facility. If you have an out of network PPO or POS policy, you can be accepted here with lower out of pocket costs than other options.

What exactly is covered?

Our program offers detox and residential levels of care and are fully covered by Aetna.

Aetna Covered Detox

Detox is typically for people coming off of drugs and/or alcohol. The detox period can vary depending upon a number of factors. These factors typically include the type of substance abused and the severity of the associated withdrawal symptoms. The typical stay in detox is 5-10 days.

During the detox period our doctors can prescribe drugs to ‘taper’ you off of the drugs of abuse in order to minimize withdrawal symptoms. This is what is called a medically supervised detox and is much more comfortable and less dangerous than detoxing at home.

Our Mission Viejo Detox program is in a comfortable residential setting in beautiful Orange County, California. Everything we do helps make the detox process as comfortable as possible.

Common Detox Medications

Opioid Detox:

  • Buprenorphine is used to reduce withdrawal symptoms from opiates. Common brand names are Suboxone and Subutex
  • Naltrexone blocks opioid receptors in the brain and is used to prevent relapse by making the drugs ineffective.

Alcohol Detox:

  • Acamprosate reduces withdrawal symptoms.
  • Naltrexone also blocks the same receptors for alcohol.
  • Clonidine is used to treat both alcohol and opiate withdrawals and can reduce the risk of seizure

Aetna Covered Rehab

Residential rehab proceeds the detox period and typically lasts 4 weeks. After successfully completing a detox program individuals are more receptive to therapy to build a foundation for lasting sobriety. At the residential level of care there are six hours of group therapy daily. These groups incorporate cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT), dialectal behavioral therapy (DBT), holistic therapies like mindfulness and meditation, and much more. We also do daily 12-step meetings and outings that promote having fun in sobriety.
