Drug Addiction Facts

  • When cocaine and alcohol are used together the human liver manufactures a third substance, cocaethylene, which intensifies cocaine's euphoric effects, while possibly increasing the risk of sudden death.
  • Former and current heroin users describe the horrors of heroin addiction withdrawal as being far less painful and difficult than methadone withdrawal.
  • It is estimated that about 75% of rapes occur when at least one party is under the influence of alcohol.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing treatment services. Even though this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Apart from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they require in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug rehabilitation facilities have the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study information and so on are now frequently obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only in 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 sort of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab center that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent program they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions as to how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option available from a number of drug and alcohol treatment centers in an effort to help clients pay for rehab where this might not have been possible originally. For example, one client's fee for treatment could be different and lower than someone else whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration other factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
