Drug Addiction Facts

  • There is evidence from studies of stimulant addicts and case reports that stimulant drugs can cause heart disease, including inflammation and scarring.
  • Sometimes the bottles used to produce meth using the "shake and bake" method explode, badly burning the meth cook and anyone else in the line of fire.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehab center while receiving rehab services. Although this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehab require to experience a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. 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 rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance.
