  • Some addicts intentionally make the choice to use a form of heroin or cocaine which has been laced with fentanyl, in a desperate search for an increasingly better high.
  • All forms of marijuana contain THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and more than 400 other chemicals besides THC.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, because the individual can keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in rehabilitation require to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug and alcohol treatment programs who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to be able to not merely become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who have a problem with substance abuse could possibly have unique obstacles they have to overcome while in rehab, which treatment professionals in the rehab they choose to be a part of should be keen of in order that a complete recovery is possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is prudent to pick a program that's accustomed to helping seniors and older adults tackle the unique life and substance abuse problems that these clients face that might include a broader spectrum of services including health care and the like.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is needed. Apart from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the support they need in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment centers have the staff or resources to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but fortunately there are more and more programs that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Counselling, study data and so on are actually very often accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation 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 might be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that's in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by a variety of alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help clients afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's price for treatment could possibly be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to spend the money for full cost of rehab. Registrars take into account additional factors apart from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
