Drug Addiction Facts

  • An estimated 1.1 million Americans used Ecstasy for the first time in 2009, which is a significant increase from the 894,000 first-time users reported in 2008.
  • Ecstasy is not a "fun" party drug which is as benign as some would think, and often results in the same physical effects as other stimulants, such as cocaine and amphetamines including increases in heart rate and blood pressure.
  • A recent study regarding the placebo effect in children whose parents and teachers were told they had been put on the ADHD drug Adderall, which in fact was a placebo pill, found that many cases diagnosed as ADHD may only be in the mind, for both the children diagnosed with the disorder and their parents and teachers.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the various needs of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance plans, you don't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions regarding level of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might appear perfect it might not provide the required change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery have to have to have a productive rehab.

Residential Long-Term Treatment (More Than 30 Days)

Residential long-term treatment, which lasts for more than four weeks, is definitely an option that provides the commensurate intensity of care and suitable environment for anyone experiencing a significant addiction and dependency problem. Because individuals will stay inside a residential long-term rehab program for approximately 3-6 months and even longer in some cases, these types of programs offer all of the amenities needed to make a client's stay as relaxed and amenable as possible while providing quality rehabilitation to help them overcome their addiction forever.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are identified in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders when it's in treatment to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Luckily, there are several alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers who can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not simply become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility 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 rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with 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 rehabilitation, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good center they prefer and meet with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous drug and alcohol rehab centers in order to help clients pay for treatment where this might not have been doable initially. For example, one client's fee for rehab could possibly be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration additional factors apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
