Drug Addiction Facts

  • The risk for stroke associated with cocaine use is much higher than with other stroke risk factors, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or smoking due to the fact that cocaine use can result in the constriction of blood vessels, increased heart rate, body temperature and blood pressure, and decreased oxygen supply to the brain.
  • A chronic heroin user can often begin to experience withdrawal symptoms within hours of the last administration of the drug.
  • Although inpatient treatment can take place in a hospital setting, for the most part a residential setting is typical, offering 24-hour care and surveillance. The most common form of treatment is a therapeutic community, involving the other patients and staff, focusing on helping the person understand the sources and conditions that lead to substance abuse.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, for the reason that individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug treatment center that is in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they like and consult with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.
