Drug Addiction Facts

  • Stimulant drugs are one of the few causes of cardiac death in otherwise normal children, making it impossible to detect the risk before it happens.
  • The disadvantage of an inpatient rehab program is, obviously that clients have to live at the center rather than at home. Although this can be helpful in terms of getting support, patients usually need to take a leave of absence from their jobs and will only see their families on designated visiting days while they are in rehab.
  • In individuals who have certain mental disorders, marijuana has been known to produce a brief psychotic reaction in some users that fades as the drug's effects wear off.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a treatment center while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in rehab need to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

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

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they like and speak with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with 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 consultant. There can be some limitations regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the treatment facility of choice.
