Drug Addiction Facts

  • Heroin is frequently available in its powder form which is white in color; the purer the heroin, the whiter it will appear. Less pure powder heroin is a deep tan color.
  • Heroin cravings have sometimes been reported to persist for many years after an individual has stopped using the drug, particularly upon exposure to triggers such as stress or people and things that are associated with drug use. This is why treatment for heroin addiction is so crucial.
  • When used in the treatment of opiate addiction, methadone maintenance suppresses withdrawal symptoms for 24 to 36 hours.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential programs now being covered by many insurance companies, you don't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who needs it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is a process which can be made a lot more manageable and safely supervised when in a professional detoxification or alcohol and drug rehab facility. Often detoxification isn't without risk, and even with the best of intentions people who go through detoxification independently so that they can get sober may very well be putting their health and even their lives at risk. It is always best to seek detoxification services inside a professional center in order to avoid such hazards as well as have a smooth progression from detoxification to rehabilitation in a quality drug treatment program.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehab center while undergoing treatment services. Although this may seem ideal it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehab need to experience a productive rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is required. Aside from ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they need in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab centers will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab 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 strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab facility that's in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good program they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.
