Drug Addiction Facts

  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • Snorting cocaine can result in a chronically runny nose, nosebleeds, loss of smell, hoarseness, and problems swallowing.
  • As cocaine passes from the importer to the user, it is typically diluted or "cut" at each stage of distribution to increase each dealer's profit. The user never typically knows how pure the product they are using is.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment program while undergoing treatment services. Even if this may appear perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in treatment need to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, treatment programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations as to just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option made available from numerous drug treatment centers to help help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been possible initially. As an example, one client's fee for treatment could be different and lower than another person whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full cost of rehab. Registrars take into account other factors besides income including number of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
