Drug Addiction Facts

  • Cocaine is generally not taken by mouth for recreational purposes and it has been known to cause toxic reactions, including death, in people who swallow it to avoid police detection or border authorities.
  • Some addicts intentionally make the choice to use a form of heroin or cocaine which has been laced with fentanyl, in a desperate search for an increasingly better high.
  • Methamphetamine addicted individuals often develop sores on their bodies because they scratch at imaginary bugs they believe are crawling under their skin.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application.

Private Health Insurance

Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehabilitation center that is inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of preference.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehabilitation facilities offer payment assistance to help individuals who may possibly not have adequate money to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for their stay.
