Drug Addiction Facts

  • Older adults who drink have an increased sensitivity to alcohol due to the fact that aging can lower the body's tolerance for alcohol, and therefore experience the effects of alcohol more readily than when they were younger.
  • Many fentanyl overdoses are initially classified as heroin overdoses, until the truth is discovered.
  • The majority of primary methamphetamine admissions to substance abuse treatment facilities in 2011 were male (53 percent).

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment program while receiving treatment services. Even though this might appear ideal it might not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

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

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients find their way into rehabilitation due to a court order in order to meet part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol treatment frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug and alcohol rehabilitation specifications enforced with them in sentencing and particularly of course when successfully completing a drug rehabilitation center.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is required. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the help they require in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehabilitation program which is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good center they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as 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 can be some limitations concerning how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning treatment so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the treatment center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from a variety of drug and alcohol treatment centers in an effort to help individuals pay for rehab where this may not have been doable originally. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation could possibly be different and someone else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehab. Registrars take into consideration additional factors besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
