Drug Addiction Facts

  • When abused, prescription stimulants can increase brain dopamine in a manner that is similar to other drugs of abuse such as methamphetamine, which in turn raises the risk of addiction.
  • Opiate narcotic abuse, such as abuse of Codeine products, is second only to marijuana in terms of past-year use in the United States.
  • Alcohol destroys brain cells and unlike many other types of cells in the body, brain cells do not regenerate.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment center while receiving rehab services. Even though this might appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of environment than a lot of people in rehabilitation have to have to experience a productive rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL as well as other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehab is required. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the support they need in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation center which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 costs of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals might have to take part in a drug rehab facility which is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations regarding how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by many different alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs in an effort to help individuals pay for treatment where this might not have been possible originally. For example, one client's fee for rehab could possibly be different and somebody else whose finances are better making them more prepared to spend the money for full expense of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
