Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.
  • Some addicts intentionally make the choice to use a form of heroin or cocaine which has been laced with fentanyl, in a desperate search for an increasingly better high.
  • All forms of marijuana contain THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and more than 400 other chemicals besides THC.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that has to be safely managed through detox services when heavily addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders whilst in rehabilitation to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are several drug treatment programs who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face in order to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have trouble with drug use might have distinctive challenges they have to overcome during rehabilitation, which rehab specialists in the program they choose to be a part of should be keen of to ensure that a complete recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to pick a program that's used to helping seniors and older adults tackle the distinctive life and drug use issues that these clients face which can include a broader spectrum of services including medical care and so on.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse treatment is required. Besides ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are receiving the help they require in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will usually offer payment assistance for people 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 unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals might have to participate in a drug treatment center that is inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility provided by a number of drug treatment programs in order to help clients afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation might be different and another individual whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider other factors besides income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
