Drug Addiction Facts

  • Individuals taking part in methadone maintenance programs who intend to get high from their methadone dose will abstain from taking a dose or two, and then take an extremely large dose all at once to get a much stronger high from the drug.
  • Methadone stays in the system as long as 59 hours, but only provides pain relief for up to 8 hours. Patients may need more pain relief before the drug is cleared from the body, and therefore administer another dose too soon resulting in toxic levels of the drug in the system which can lead to life-threatening changes in breathing and heart function.
  • Research indicates that exposure to high doses of Ecstasy for 4 days can produce brain damage that can still be seen 6 to 7 years later.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody that needs to be safely managed through detox services when seriously addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health services during their rehabilitation procedure. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, rehab programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to 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 can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program that's within their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions as to how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of preference.
