Drug Addiction Facts

  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • People in clubs who abuse codeine cough syrup normally mix their syrup with soft drinks or cocktails, while polydrug users mostly drink their syrup undiluted.
  • Some inpatient programs offer additional services, like meditation, animal therapy, gourmet cooking, crafts or community service.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any kind of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone getting substance abuse treatment services for anyone who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehab need to have a successful rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clientele, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study information and stuff like that are actually very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment program that's inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they like and meet 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 expenses of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.
