  • Cannabis: 5 days
  • Alcohol: 5-7 days
  • Stimulants: 1-2 weeks
  • Opioids: 4-10 days; 
  • Benzodiazepines: 1-4 weeks, or 3-5 weeks if reducing dosage gradually
  • Methadone maybe 14-21 days up to a year for taper down programs

Dear Heroin

Dear Heroin

© 

Published: August 2008

I am angry…

You made me believe you were the cure for my every kind of pain.
I had you wrapped around me while I let you take control of my veins.

At this point in time I didn’t know who or what you turned me into,
But you made it impossible to get through days without you.

You had control of my body now, and if I didn’t choose you,
you made me feel so sick to where I was helpless, not knowing what to do.

By now I started doing the things I swore I would never do,
lying and stealing off the people who didn’t mean a thing to you.

You had me convinced that throughout my life you were determined to stay, 
that I did not have that option of turning and walking away.

Before you know it, everyone I loved saw this side of me that was hurting them inside.
Every time they questioned, I did what you taught me to do…lie.

I wanted to let you go and get you out of my way, 
so scared to tell someone, imagining what they would say.

Don’t want to be judged, it was a decision I would have to make, 
but I’ve wasted so much time; it was a little too late.

Being put in jail was something I knew it was going to come down to, 
but it made me free of relief knowing that I could not get to you.

It was a struggle, but a worthwhile fight
because now I am in control and you are out of my life.

Being sober turned me into the person I’ve always wanted to be, 
and that was the one day you were praying I would never see.

Now I am doing the good things I never imagined myself to do, 
and proudly I can say I am doing them without you.

Senate To Vote To End Insurance Coverage For Substance Abuse

Addiction No More No Comments
senate building

SENATE TO VOTE TO END INSURANCE COVERAGE FOR SUBSTANCE ABUSE. OVER 1 MILLION PEOPLE COULD LOOSE THEIR LIVES DUE TO LACK OF COVERAGE AND DENIAL OF TREATMENT BY 2026.

Insurance for drug rehabilitation is in jeopardy for millions of Americans.

Get the help that is needed immediately, to handle addiction for you or a loved one. In the coming weeks, we are going to find out if this bill will affect your ability to receive the treatment you or someone you love needs for an addiction or dependency to drugs or alcohol. If you wait to see what happens, it may be too late already for some states. The uncertainty in the insurance market has already caused many providers to drop out and see if they want to continue providing insurance to people in every state now. 

alternative to jail

Drug rehabilitation is expensive if you do not have insurance to offset the cost of inpatient treatment for addiction to drugs or alcohol. With the recent heroin and opioid epidemic, there is an urgency to get as many people help as soon as possible before addiction ends their lives. The outlook of this new proposed bill in the Senate is grim for tens of millions of people and millions of addicts throughout our country. With states being able to opt out of the essential benefit guaranty that was mandated through the Affordable Care Act, drug or alcohol addiction treatment paid for by your insurance provider in your state may be terminated with a waiver to the federal government.



Free drug rehab centers and missions are not enough to handle the ever growing drug epidemic. Finding a free treatment center for addiction can be an arduous task, to say the least. Looking for a treatment program that can handle addictions, detox, and interventions that are free is almost impossible. With the new proposed cuts to the Medicaid programs, there will be much more of a need for communities to step up and help handle the drug addiction epidemic. Without addiction treatment, there will surely be a rise in crime violent and otherwise.

Do not wait to get the help you need. Addiction is a progressive disease and can have long lasting consequences even after the addiction is under control.  Getting help sooner than later can help in recovery before health or legal issues are added to the list of things that need to be handled. 
Addiction No More is urging people with insurance through the marketplace to seek treatment immediately if you want to be able to utilize your insurance benefits. In the coming days, we are going to see what will happen with the healthcare system. This is a very scary prospect for the millions of Americans that were able to finally have health insurance coverage. 

If you are one of the fortunate people that have healthcare coverage through your work and are using drugs or alcohol in excess, seek treatment immediately. Your insurance is in question as well as those who seek insurance through the marketplace. With businesses being able to opt out of essential services, most companies will look at saving money at the expense of your health care coverage. 

rehabs that take insurance

Opioid epidemic on the list of targets for the GOP.

With the recent opioid epidemic figures in, for therapy and aftercare, there will be a significant shortage of money available for the treatment for addiction. It is estimated that the opioid epidemic will cost hundreds of billions of dollars over the next 10 years. With cuts to the Medicaid program which pays for more than 40% of Buprenorphine (a life-saving opioid addiction drug) prescriptions,  could affect millions of lives nationwide. 
States being able to opt out of ObamaCare protections. 

Under ObamaCare, there is a requirement that makes it mandatory for an insurance provider to sell insurance to the American public offer Essential Health Benefits. These “Essential Health Benefits” include provisions that cover addiction treatment, mental health, preventative care, contraception, and emergency services. For a full list of benefits please visit https://www.healthcare.gov/coverage/what-marketplace-plans-cover.  The new Senate bill, if passed will end essential benefits for people covered under the Medicaid expansion programs by 2020. 

obamacare rehab centers

Insurance prices will be going up with fewer protections

We have done research into the new proposed plans and have come to the conclusion that the prices of healthcare within the privatized system, that the GOP is proposing will, in fact, raise rates and deny coverage to the people with pre-existing conditions.  The middle class once again will pay even more than they are paying with the Affordable Care Act for less coverage, with higher deductibles. 
Our country is in the middle of an opioid epidemic and the prospect that these conditions could be denied insurance coverage could be a death sentence for thousands of people.  Those that lose coverage through the marketplace could be placed in high-risk pools and the funding proposed is inadequate to provide coverage for those who buy insurance in the individual marketplace. 
The overall impact of this bill that is being pushed through our Senate this upcoming week will impact the ability to use your insurance coverage to help offset the costs of rising drug or alcohol rehabilitation in the United States. The essential benefits program also requires that states follow strict guidelines in how they structure their Medicaid programs.  The states that opted out of the Medicaid expansion program are set to be hit the hardest and at lightning speed as predicted by many treatment providers that accept Medicaid. 

Medicaid expansion was playing a huge role in the battle against the opioid epidemic. In the 31 states that expanded Medicaid, there has been a significant decrease in people being admitted to the emergency rooms for addiction problems without insurance to cover the cost of treatment. In 2013, a number of uninsured people seeking medical intervention for their addictions were at 20% and that number has had a significant drop down to 5% in 2015 after just 2 short years of Medicaid expansion. 
The changes to the Medicaid system have changed the Medicaid system to a “Per Capita Cap” System. This type of system gives a lump sum for each enrollee with a set cap for services, or the individual states can opt for a block grant (a sum of money that the federal government sets that has no bearing on how many enrollees are insured through Medicaid). This is a completely different system than we have now where the federal government covers all of the treatment expenses for a Medicaid patient no matter the costs.

This new Medicaid proposal will surely be the end of many state-sponsored treatment options for our addicted family members and friends at the moment in their lives when they need our help the most.

States opting out of ObamaCare protections.

There are provisions in the new healthcare bill “Better Reconciliation Act of 2017” or ‘TrumpCare’ that make it possible for states not to cover substance abuse treatment at all. The TrumpCare bill being voted on Friday will make it possible for individual states to decide if they want to cover addiction treatment as part of their healthcare coverage plans or not. The bill being voted on will make it so critical areas see addiction coverage ended in the midst of an opioid epidemic.
Leana Wen, a Baltimore Maryland Health Commissioner stated shortly after the new healthcare bill was revealed “insurers can stop providing coverage for mental health services at the time of a public health emergency around opioid overdose. This will cost millions more lives.” 
Getting help for addiction is a phone call away. Our counselors are available to answer all your insurance questions, 7 days a week, 24 hours a day. We will help you find the correct solution to handle any addiction to drugs or alcohol.  Do not wait until your insurance plan changes and the essential benefits package you thought you were entitled to changes or is taken away from you all together. 

NOTE: Senate suspends vote until after the July 4th recess.

The Voice Of Addiction

© Carrie Roush

Published on March 2008

Well, it’s nice to finally meet you.
I’ve been waiting for your call.
I’ve noticed you’ve been crying,
And, I’ve watched you pace the halls.

Whatever has been hurting you,
I can make it disappear.
You know you have nothing to lose,
Nothing to live for, nothing to fear.

Thank you, for your invention.
I’ll be sure not to leave your side.
We’ll become very fast acquainted.
My naive child, there’s no use trying to hide.

I should probably introduce myself.
I am your very own addiction.
But, you can not be angry with me.
I am you own self-conviction.

I bet you feel rather stupid,
Falling right into my lap.
I’m a master at manipulation.
You’ll never escape my trap.

How does it feel to dance with the Devil?
For he and I are one in the same.
God, has completely abandoned you,
So, you might as well stay in the game.

Are you honestly going to try to beat me?
A useless battle if you want to know.
Go ahead and make an attempt.
Besides, I’m in the mood for a good show.

I guess, you think your special.
But, your sobriety has only lasted a year.
I’m still around every corner,
In the back of your mind
I’m your greatest fear.

I’ll always be your dirty little secret.
I won’t disappear over time.
Twenty years from now you may falter,
And, I’ll be the first thing that comes to mind.

A vicious cycle, that’s what your thinking,
But, I’m only speaking the truth.
I’m Satin’s weapon of mass destruction.
The silent killer of America’s youth.

It’s genius when you think of it.
Everyone’s looking for some Armageddon war.
But, what the fools don’t realize,
Is everyday Armageddon walks through their front door

America’s working class has been the subject of studies analyzing the large spikes in alcohol- and drug-related deaths over the last few decades, and churches and Christian-based recovery groups are playing a vital role in saving lives by helping people overcome their addictions.

“The church should have a role in helping people with any type of addiction. Depending on the congregation and their level of resources that help will vary. Some churches are taking an active role in developing in-house assistance and counseling while others that are not funded for this type of activity are partnering with people in their congregation who have a heart and vision for this type of ministry,” said Ray Perea, CEO and facility director of Revival Recovery Services in Apple Valley, California, in an interview with The Christian Post.

Alcohol Addiction 

Each year, a typical young person in the United States is inundated with more than 1,000 commercials for beer and wine coolers and several thousand fictional drinking incidents on television.

Alcohol is involved in 50% of all driving fatalities.

In the United States, every 30 minutes someone is killed in an alcohol related traffic accident.

Over 15 million Americans are dependent on alcohol. 500,000 are between the age of 9 and 12.

Each year the liquor industry spends almost $2 billion dollars on advertising and encouraging the consumption of alcoholic beverages.

Americans spend over $90 billion dollars total on alcohol each year.

An average American may consume over 25 gallons of beer, 2 gallons of wine, and 1.5 gallons of distilled spirits each year.

Pregnant women who drink are feeding alcohol to their babies. Unfortunately the underdeveloped liver of the baby can only burn alcohol at half the rate of its mother, so the alcohol stays in the baby’s system twice as long.

Each year students spend $5.5 billion on alcohol, more than they spend on soft drinks, tea, milk, juice, coffee, or books combined.

56% of students in grade 5 to 12 say that alcohol advertising encourages them to drink.

6.6% of employees in full-time jobs report heavy drinking, defined as drinking five or more drinks per occasion on five or more days in the past 30 days.

The highest percentage of heavy drinkers (12.2%) is found among unemployed adults between the age of 26 to 34

Up to 40% of all industrial fatalities and 47% of industrial injuries can be linked to alcohol consumption and alcoholism.

In 2000, almost 7 million persons age 12 to 20 was a binge drinker; that is about one in five persons under the legal drinking age was a binge drinker.

The 2001 survey shows 25 million (one in ten) Americans surveyed reported driving under the influence of alcohol. This report is nearly three million more than the previous year. Among young adults age 18 to 25 years, almost 23% drove under the influence of alcohol.

Drunk driving is proving to be even deadlier then what we previously know. The latest death statistics released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), using a new method of calculation show that 17,488 people were killed in alcohol related traffic accidents last year. This report represents nearly 800 more people were killed than the previous year.

signs of addiction

Alcohol is the number 1 drug problem in America.

43% of Americans have been exposed to alcoholism in their families.

Nearly one out of 4 Americans admitted to general hospitals have alcohol problems or are undiagnosed alcoholics being diagnosed for alcohol related consequences.

Alcohol and alcohol related problems is costing the American economy at least $100 million in health care and lost of productivity every year.

Four in ten criminal offenders report alcohol as a factor in violence.

Among spouse violence victims, three out of four incidents were reported to have involved alcohol use by the offender.

In 1996, local law enforcement agencies made an estimated 1,467,300 arrests nationwide for driving under the influence of alcohol.

“Be Real” A Poem by Eileen

Addiction No More No Comments

“Be Real” 


In this time in your life
Look, see with acute, aware eyes
What the devil will try to disguise,
He quells your fears and worries 
on the leaves of a plant,
And your mind will slowly begin to recant.
He embraces you with the nectar of Ambrosia
In a falsely induced state of repose.
Your mind slowly loses its thought
Your senses blur and swirl in a blot
And evil entities come to steal your will 
They enter your thoughts in the shape of a pill.
Sometimes liquid, sometimes smoke,
Your feelings are becoming more and more remote.
Then one day you wake up and kind of can tell
That the feelings you ran from then
Would now serve you well.

You can’t even feel laughter, sadness or joy on your own
You’re blank and a corpse unless you get stoned.
You serve the chemical – you’re under a spell.
The Liar trapped you in his drug-dependent hell.
Your Creator is still willing to bring you back
and ransom your mind from the cobwebs of crack.
There’s a war waged in the heavens for your eternal soul
Your mind is the door through which it must go.
The only way to regain your life is to lose IT 
and let those feelings return.
Your life is a lesson you have to learn.
Your mind is designed for feelings, ideas prayers and love.
Engineered and exquisitely impassioned by your Maker above.
It can’t be improved by upsetting its chemistry….
The way it is – is the way it’s meant to be. 
So be mad, sad, glad, afraid, brave, content…..
But however you feel…..Be real, be real, be real.
