Drug Addiction Facts

  • The elevated risk of heart attack among marijuana users may be caused by marijuana raising blood pressure and heart rate and reducing the blood's capacity to carry oxygen.
  • More than half a million visits to hospital emergency rooms a year are drug-related.
  • Codeine is often prescribed in the form of syrup to treat the common cough, and "Purple Drank" is a slang term for codeine cough syrup which is combined with Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy for illicit abuse. The concoction takes on a purplish hue, hence the name Purple Drank.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility which is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent center they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from a number of alcohol and drug rehab centers in an effort to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been doable originally. As an example, one client's fee for rehab could possibly be different and lower than another person whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay for the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional circumstances aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
