Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methamphetamine addicted individuals often develop sores on their bodies because they scratch at imaginary bugs they believe are crawling under their skin.
  • Stimulant drugs such as crack and meth, can lead to delusional parasitosis; a mistaken belief they an user is infested with parasites also known as "coke bugs". These delusions are also often associated with high fevers and users often scratch themselves to the point of serious skin damage and bleeding.
  • Because drug purity is always in question, both experienced and new heroin users have the same risk overdosing on heroin.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services as part of their rehab process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers 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 rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation 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 establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly 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 can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug treatment center which is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they prefer and meet with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions about how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment facility of choice.
