Many people struggle with a substance use disorder. For many individuals in high-paid professions, the stress of the job is one factor that often contributes to their use of drugs. Without a doubt, these professionals are doing important work, whether that is working as doctors and surgeons or working in corporate positions. At Faith Recovery in Beverly Hills, CA, we work with many people who are struggling with drug addiction, providing them with a safe way to get support.
Which High Paid Professionals Have Used Drugs?
There are many instances of high-paid professionals who have turned to drugs for many reasons. Some of the most common professions in which a person may be struggling with addiction include:
- Arts and entertainment professionals: Those who work as actors, athletes, or other entertainers are at a high risk of developing an addiction to drugs due to the ease of access and the pressure of their jobs.
- Corporate management professionals: People working as executives, CEOs, and other senior leadership team members are also at a high risk of using drugs for stress management, stimulants to keep going, or to try to relax.
- Finance industry professionals: There is no doubt working on the stock market or handling a company's finances is a high-stress job. Others in this field struggle with the ups and downs of the industry and often develop an addiction as a result.
- Hospital professionals: The stakes are high for many hospital leadership teams, including surgeons and management leaders. Even though they fully understand the risks, addiction can occur.

Will health insurance cover drug addiction treatment?
Many types of health insurance policies cover drug addiction treatment. The extent of that coverage will differ from one policy to the next. Your out-of-pocket expenses may differ, too.
Most policies provide coverage for detoxification if it is deemed necessary under their guidelines. It may also cover residential treatment programs, which require a person to live within a treatment center for an extended period of time. Policies often cover mental health care that is received during addiction treatment as well. Some policies cover intensive outpatient programs or partial hospitalization programs.
The number of days of coverage, the value of coverage, and the specific types of coverage for different treatment plans will differ from one policy to the next.
What if I need a drug detox? Will health insurance cover the cost?
Detox is a brief period of a few days to a week or so in which you will work with a treatment team to break your dependence on drugs. This is often a medically supervised program, and that does mean that the care is more intensive and expensive. Most health insurance policies that cover substance use disorder will cover detox as long as you meet specific criteria listed on the policy.
Does insurance cover medical assisted treatment?
Medication assisted treatment (MAT) is a type of treatment in which a person receives medications to help them to control their cravings and withdrawal symptoms. Often, this is a very powerful tool for breaking the dependence. For many people, this treatment helps them to get through the difficult detox period. It is not available to all types of drug addictions. However, insurance companies will cover medication assisted treatment if it is considered medically necessary for you.
Does health insurance cover dual diagnosis?
In many situations, dual diagnosis is covered by health insurance providers. Dual diagnosis is the treatment of both mental health and addiction at the same time. It is very common for individuals to need this type of care. When you visit Faith Recovery Center, we will work closely with you to determine if you need this type of care. If so, we can verify at that time if treatment is covered for you through your insurance company.
