Drug Addiction Facts

  • The disadvantage of an inpatient rehab program is, obviously that clients have to live at the center rather than at home. Although this can be helpful in terms of getting support, patients usually need to take a leave of absence from their jobs and will only see their families on designated visiting days while they are in rehab.
  • Ritalin is often diverted to be sold on the street and is known certain slang names that include Vitamin R, R Ball, and Kiddie Coke, just to name a few.
  • Hashish ("hash" for short), and hash oil are stronger forms of marijuana.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of level of care, because the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to be in a treatment facility while undergoing rehab services. While this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in treatment require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible 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 rehab, but usually only inside 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 form of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment program that's in their network of providers and there can be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they like and consult with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions concerning just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab center of choice.
