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.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that has to be safely managed through detox services when heavily addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehab is required. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug treatment program which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations for example how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment center of preference.
