Drug Addiction Facts

  • Many individuals who are addicted to opiates prefer the high they get from combining methadone and heroin because they claim it drastically increases the euphoric effects of heroin, which in turn has caused many fatal overdoses.
  • About 1 in 10 teens uses cough syrup or cold medicine to get high, including cough syrups containing codeine.
  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in many different settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance plans, you don't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, for the reason that individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in recovery need to experience a productive rehab.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders in many cases are given the choice or ordered to treatment as part of sentencing. In many cases, the offender can choose which treatment center they would like to go to. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from reduced sentencing options to be able to progress in their lives without getting penalized further.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehab as part of a court ruling in order to meet a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehab frequently receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when being cooperative with alcohol and drug treatment specifications enforced with them in sentencing and particularly of course when successfully completing an alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug treatment centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab 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 alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment facilities. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment center that's in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions for example how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they like and consult with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of preference.
