Drug Addiction Facts

  • 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.
  • 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.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program that will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from many different drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs in an effort to help clients afford rehab where this might not have been doable initially. For instance, one client's fee for rehab might be different and lower than another individual whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full cost of rehab. Registrars take into consideration additional factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
