Drug Addiction Facts

  • Studies indicate that people who are drug dependent are much more likely than the general population to drink alcohol.
  • Crack cocaine can be purchased in small amounts that are enough for two smoke sessions for an average of $5 to $15, and may be as much as 90 percent pure which is up to six times stronger than powder cocaine that is normally purchased on the street.
  • As of February 1, 2014 Canadian pharmacists will start giving out a formulation of methadone called Methadose, covered under PharmaCare, which is the same dosage but patients will only have to ingest a 10-millilitre dose of the liquid, which is about two teaspoons, instead of 100 millilitres, just under half a cup.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while receiving treatment services. While this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery require to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehab programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment program which is within their network of providers and there may be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by many different alcohol and drug rehab facilities in an effort to help individuals pay for rehab where this might not have been doable originally. As an example, one client's price for rehab could be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehab. Registrars take into account variables apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
