Drug Addiction Facts

  • Studies indicate that people who are drug dependent are much more likely than the general population to drink alcohol.
  • Crack cocaine can be purchased in small amounts that are enough for two smoke sessions for an average of $5 to $15, and may be as much as 90 percent pure which is up to six times stronger than powder cocaine that is normally purchased on the street.
  • As of February 1, 2014 Canadian pharmacists will start giving out a formulation of methadone called Methadose, covered under PharmaCare, which is the same dosage but patients will only have to ingest a 10-millilitre dose of the liquid, which is about two teaspoons, instead of 100 millilitres, just under half a cup.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while receiving treatment services. While this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery require to have a successful rehab.

Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment

Partial hospitalization, or Day Treatment as it is often called, is a kind of drug and alcohol treatment center meant for individuals who need and desire a comprehensive and organized rehab strategy and atmosphere yet don't require night and day supervision. It can help make individuals in treatment remain supported rehabilitation course of action without interfering with other activities they may need to maintain whilst in rehabilitation. Partial hospitalization/Day Treatment is also a possibility for many who have finished an inpatient or residential center and need assistance with the smooth transition back into a normal drug free lifestyle.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and also other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Apart from ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they require in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. 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 in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that's in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they prefer and meet with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of choice.
