Drug Addiction Facts

  • Heroin can either be injected into a vein ("mainlining"), smoked in a water pipe or standard pipe, mixed in a marijuana joint or regular cigarette, inhaled as smoke through a straw or snorted as powder through the nose.
  • In 2011, methamphetamine represented around 103,000 emergency department visits that year.
  • Because many addicts will simply choose to take more fentanyl to ease symptoms, it is always best to undergo fentanyl withdrawal with the help of professional treatment counselors or medical professionals who can help ease symptoms and cravings for the drug.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any sort of and degree of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance plans, you shouldn't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from drugs and alcohol is really a process which can be made much more manageable and safely supervised when in a proper detoxification or drug and alcohol rehabilitation center. Sometimes detoxification isn't risk-free, and even with the very best of intentions people who proceed through detoxification independently so that they can get sober might really be putting their health as well as their lives in danger. It is always best to seek detoxification services in a professional center in order to avoid such dangers and also to have a smooth transition from detoxification to treatment in a quality alcohol and drug rehab center.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone that has to be safely managed through detox services when intensely dependent to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions during their treatment procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, as the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehab program while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in treatment need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, rehab facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment program which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they like and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations about just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of preference.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug treatment facilities offer payment assistance to help clients who may not have adequate money to self pay for treatment or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for his or her stay. As an example, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term center when in actuality a long-term program is going to be the more appropriate choice. To find out what payment assistance could be offered, for instance a sliding fee scale, seek advice from the facility for particulars.
