Drug Addiction Facts

  • A methamphetamine high lasts longer than a cocaine high yet costs about the same, which is why it is sometimes referred to as the "poor man's cocaine."
  • 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.
  • The codeine concoction "Purple Drank", made popular by the hip hop community, has resulted in the deaths of several prominent users.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehabilitation require to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during rehab to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to enable them to not just become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the support they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment facility that's in their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they like and meet with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification 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 can be some limitations regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from numerous drug and alcohol rehab centers in an effort to help individuals afford treatment where this might not have been doable originally. For example, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and lower than another person whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehab. Registrars take into account additional factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
