Drug Addiction Facts

  • Because prescription stimulants suppress appetite, increase wakefulness, focus and attention, they are often abused for weight loss and for performance enhancement in sports.
  • Ritalin is actually more potent than cocaine in its effect on the areas of the brain which produce dopamine, the "reward" chemical that the brain produces.
  • Inpatient drug/alcohol treatment requires the patient to live at the treatment facility. Patients usually live with other recovering addicts and have the opportunity to assist daily therapy sessions and support groups.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this might seem ideal it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in recovery require to experience a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution due to the fact one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehab facilities that can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to enable them to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL as well as other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Other than ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they need in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment center that's in their network of providers and there may be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and consult with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to 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 consultant. There might be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment center of preference.
