Drug Addiction Facts

  • Drinkers who consume alcohol with energy drinks are about twice as likely to report taking advantage of someone else sexually.
  • Older adults who drink have an increased sensitivity to alcohol due to the fact that aging can lower the body's tolerance for alcohol, and therefore experience the effects of alcohol more readily than when they were younger.
  • Heavy drinkers are more susceptible to pneumonia, lung collapse and pulmonary infections.

100% Confidential.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who needs to be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely addicted to drugs and alcohol, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their rehabilitation process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services with regards to intensity of care, because the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to stay in a treatment program while undergoing treatment services. Even though this might appear ideal it may not provide the required change of surroundings than many individuals in recovery need to experience a productive rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug abuse due to the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse treatment is necessary. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the help they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities possess the staff or resources to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more centers that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study info and stuff like that are actually frequently accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program that is inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations like just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment facility of choice.
