Drug Addiction Facts

  • Many individuals who are addicted to opiates prefer the high they get from combining methadone and heroin because they claim it drastically increases the euphoric effects of heroin, which in turn has caused many fatal overdoses.
  • About 1 in 10 teens uses cough syrup or cold medicine to get high, including cough syrups containing codeine.
  • 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.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that should be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously addicted to drugs and alcohol, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health services during their rehabilitation process. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are identified in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders whilst in rehabilitation to find resolution due to the fact one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are many drug rehabilitation programs who are able to specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face so that they can not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL along with other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is needed. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment center that is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they like and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of preference.
