Drug Addiction Facts

  • Inpatient drug/alcohol programs, sometimes are extended for patients who are receiving some benefit from the program but have not yet made enough progress to leave the rehab facility.
  • Individuals with alcoholism or who abuse alcohol are less likely to be tested for HIV and to seek treatment, and are less compliant with treatment regimens than those without alcohol use disorders.
  • As with other opiate narcotics, methadone creates a feeling of well-being and binds to the same receptors in the brain as heroin and other drugs.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, because the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a treatment center while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in rehab require to experience a successful rehab.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into treatment as part of a court ruling to fulfill a part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug and alcohol treatment often receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with drug treatment requirements enforced on them in sentencing especially of course when successfully completing a drug treatment facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. In addition, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from a variety of alcohol and drug rehab facilities to help help clients afford rehab where this might not have been doable initially. For example, one client's price for rehab could be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into account additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
