  • Codeine is often prescribed in the form of syrup to treat the common cough, and "Purple Drank" is a slang term for codeine cough syrup which is combined with Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy for illicit abuse.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this may seem ideal it may not provide the required change of surroundings than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment program that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by a number of alcohol and drug treatment programs in order to help clients pay for treatment where this might not have been doable originally. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could possibly be different and less than another person whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional circumstances apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
