Drug Addiction Facts

  • Ecstasy causes many of its effects by releasing large amounts of the brain's reward chemical serotonin, after which the brain becomes significantly depleted of this important chemical which then causes negative behavioral aftereffects that users often experience for several days after taking the drug.
  • Intramuscular heroin injection produces a slightly slower onset of heroin's euphoric feeling, taking approximately 5 to 8 minutes.
  • Fentanyl patches can also be abused by freezing the contents, cutting this into pieces and placing it under the tongue or in the cheek cavity for oral absorption.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings with various rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the various needs of clients with any sort of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance plans, there's no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment center while receiving rehab services. While this may seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in treatment have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, treatment facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals might have to take part in a drug rehabilitation facility which is inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent facility they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option offered by a variety of drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers to help help individuals pay for treatment where this might not have been doable initially. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation might be different and less than someone else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full cost of rehab. Registrars take into account other factors aside from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
