Drug Addiction Facts

  • Heroin users eventually cease to experience feelings of pleasure from the drug, and they will have to continue taking the drug just to feel normal.
  • Alcohol can damage the cells lining the stomach and intestines, blocking the absorption and breakdown of nutrients in those organs.
  • Rates of alcohol abuse are highest among individuals with less than a college degree.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings along with various rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the various demands of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding intensity of care, as the individual can preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery need to have a productive rehab.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the option or ordered to treatment as a term of their sentencing. Sometimes, the offender can pick which rehab center they wish to go to. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from decreased sentencing options to be able to move ahead in their lives without getting penalized any more.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Other than ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they need in alcohol and drug treatment.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug treatment facilities possess the staff or resources to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more programs that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Counselling, study data and so on are actually very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish treatment is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment center that's within their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by a variety of drug and alcohol treatment programs in order to help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's fee for treatment might be different and lower than another person whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional factors in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
