There has been national attention given to the damaging effects of opioid abuse. Many consider illicit opioids like heroin in the crisis, but prescription painkillers like Lortab are also involved. Lortab is a prescribed pain management medication that is a combination of hydrocodone and acetaminophen.

When you start using Lortab, whether by prescription or recreationally, it can be easy to develop an addiction. Living with an opioid use disorder can be frightening, but treatment is available.

Lortab Addiction Treatment Options

There are two primary options available for people who want treatment for Lortab addiction: an inpatient treatment program, also called residential care, or an outpatient program. The right choice for you depends on your level of addiction, how long you’ve been using opioids, whether you have underlying mental health issues, and whether you’ve tried to stop using opioids in the past.

Detox is a necessary first step in any substance abuse treatment. Detox from Lortab is the body’s process of removing Lortab from its system. Medical detox specifically refers to detox completed under medical supervision, with additional medical support when necessary.

Inpatient Lortab Addiction Treatment

Residential and inpatient rehab usually include living onsite in the structured environment of a treatment facility, which can work well for people with severe addictions since the entire focus is on recovery. In this environment, there is a built-in support system of professional staff and other patient peers. Therapy options are based on individual needs and include counseling at the individual, group and sometimes family level.

Outpatient Lortab Addiction Treatment

Outpatient Lortab addiction rehab lets patients continue their life obligations such as school and work, but they go to treatment during certain hours of the day and return home after. Outpatient treatment for Lortab addiction tends to be optimal if the patient isn’t expected to have severe withdrawal symptoms, has a stable home environment and doesn’t have any underlying mental health issues or co-occurring disorders.

Does Insurance Cover Rehab for Lortab Addiction?

People are often surprised to learn that most insurance companies cover some or all rehab costs, particularly since the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.

Our intake coordinators work with people from Colorado and nationwide to determine not just which program is a good match for them, but also how they can cover the costs, whether it’s fully or partially covered by public or private insurance or if other financing options are available.

Addiction specialists recommend beginning treatment as soon as possible when living with a Lortab use disorder. Our Palmer Lake, Colorado facility team can help you navigate any insurance concerns and make the first step toward recovery.
