Drug Addiction Facts

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • All forms of marijuana contain THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and more than 400 other chemicals besides THC.

100% Confidential.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, because the individual can keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in rehabilitation require to experience a successful rehab.

Gays and Lesbians

It is important that gays and lesbians receive quality rehab services within a rehabilitation setting that's discreet and has rehabilitation professionals at their disposal who understand the unique problems that they can experience in life. Because substance abuse for gays and lesbians might be triggered because of the challenges they face due to their sexual preference, a program which will help them resolve these problems and give them the confidence that they've lacked before arriving in treatment can be a crucial aspect of rehab for gay and lesbian clients.

Spanish

Not all drug treatment programs have the staff or resources to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Therapy, study information and the like are now frequently available in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehab facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehab center that's inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions about how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by a variety of alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help clients afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's price for treatment could possibly be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to spend the money for full cost of rehab. Registrars take into account additional factors apart from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs provide payment assistance to help individuals who may possibly not have adequate funds to self pay for treatment or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for his or her stay. As an example, Sometimes insurance only covers a short-term center when in reality a long-term facility will be the more suitable option. To see what payment assistance might be available, for instance a sliding fee scale, check with the program for particulars.
