Drug Addiction Facts

  • The effects of marijuana when it is smoked can last up to a few hours, and when consumed in foods or beverages are often latent, but these effects may last a bit longer than when it is smoked.
  • The elevated risk of heart attack among marijuana users may be caused by marijuana raising blood pressure and heart rate and reducing the blood's capacity to carry oxygen.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation center while receiving rehab services. While this may appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in treatment need to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug treatment programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they like and consult with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions regarding just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the treatment program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility available from many different alcohol and drug treatment facilities in order to help clients pay for treatment where this may not have been doable initially. By way of example, one client's price for rehab could possibly be different and less than someone else whose finances are better making them more prepared to pay the full price of treatment. Registrars take into consideration additional factors besides income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
