Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.
  • Care must be taken to properly dispose of a fentanyl patch in order to prevent it from being accidentally discovered by children, as exposure to even a small amount of fentanyl gel can lead to a fatal overdose in children.
  • Because many addicts will simply choose to take more fentanyl to ease symptoms, it is always best to undergo fentanyl withdrawal with the help of professional treatment counselors or medical professionals who can help ease symptoms and cravings for the drug.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of having to remain in a treatment program while receiving rehabilitation services. While this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery require to have a successful rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab programs possess the staff or resources to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study data and the like are now very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish treatment is available too nationwide.

Other Languages

In every single city in the U.S. there is someone struggling with drug abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may require rehabilitation in whichever language it is that they are fluent in to ensure that their needs may be met properly whilst in rehab. Thankfully, there are numerous alcohol and drug treatment facilities who have counselors on staff who speak other languages to make drug and alcohol treatment the most effective experience possible for anyone. Simply locate a high quality drug and alcohol rehabilitation program and find out if it is possible to receive rehabilitation in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by many different drug rehabilitation centers in an effort to help individuals afford rehab where this might not have been possible initially. As an example, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and less than someone else whose finances are better making them more prepared to spend the money for full expense of rehab. Registrars consider variables in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
