Drug Addiction Facts

  • As cocaine passes from the importer to the user, it is typically diluted or "cut" at each stage of distribution to increase each dealer's profit. The user never typically knows how pure the product they are using is.
  • 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.
  • As with other opiate narcotics, methadone creates a feeling of well-being and binds to the same receptors in the brain as heroin and other drugs.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that should be safely managed through detox services when seriously dependent to drugs and alcohol, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health services during their rehabilitation process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program which is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they like and speak with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.
