Drug Addiction Facts

  • When prescription stimulant pills are crushed and injected, insoluble fillers in the tablets can block small blood vessels and cause serious health complications.
  • Because prescription stimulants suppress appetite, increase wakefulness, focus and attention, they are often abused for weight loss and for performance enhancement in sports.
  • Prescription stimulants can increase blood pressure, heart rate, and body temperature, and when used at high doses can cause serious cardiovascular complications, including stroke.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions regarding level of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while undergoing treatment services. Even though this might seem perfect it will not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in recovery have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should consult 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 rehab, but usually only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good facility they like and speak with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities and also 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 representative. There can be some restrictions as to just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the treatment program of choice.
