Drug Addiction Facts

  • Codeine is a legal prescription drug but it is addictive, with prolonged use resulting in the same adverse effects as any other illicit drug.
  • 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.
  • Just quitting codeine cold turkey once addicted is not considered treatment at all, and most addicts will often return to regular abuse of prescription codeine in short order.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while receiving treatment services. Even though this might appear perfect it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in treatment need to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders whilst in treatment to find resolution because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug and alcohol treatment centers who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to enable them to not just become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug rehabilitation centers which deliver 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 doctor, who must help in establishing the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of drug treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center that is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered 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 limitations regarding how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers in an effort to help clients pay for rehab where this might not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation may be different and less than someone else whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
