Drug Addiction Facts

  • Research indicates that the chemical and molecular changes in the brain caused by chronic meth use may persist long after meth abuse has stopped.
  • Fentanyl is an extremely dangerous substitute for heroin because it is much more potent than heroin, which often results in accidental overdoses and death as a result of respiratory depression.
  • In 2009, 750,000 methadone prescriptions were written for pain relief, but only 250,000 people were treated with the drug for opiate addiction.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings along with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehab.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have trouble with drug use might have unique challenges they must overcome during rehabilitation, which rehab professionals in the center they decide to be a part of should be keen of so that a full recovery is achievable. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to choose a rehab that is accustomed to helping seniors and older adults deal with the unique life and drug abuse problems that these clients face which can include a broader spectrum of solutions including health care and so on.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders in many cases are given the option or ordered to treatment as a term of their sentencing. Often times, the offender can pick which rehab center they would like to enroll in. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders can take advantage of decreased sentencing options to enable them to progress in their lives without having to be penalized any more.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type 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 can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehab center which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they like and consult with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all 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 could be some limitations as to how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the treatment center of preference.
