Drug Addiction Facts

  • It isn't uncommon for long-term chronic heroin users to experience persistent withdrawal symptoms for several months when coming off of the drug.
  • Serious side effects as a result of methamphetamine use which could be life threatening can include convulsions, dangerously high body temperature, stroke, cardiac arrhythmia, stomach cramps and shaking.
  • When abused, prescription stimulants can increase brain dopamine in a manner that is similar to other drugs of abuse such as methamphetamine, which in turn raises the risk of addiction.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. While this might seem ideal it might not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than lots of people in rehab need to have a productive rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the support they need in drug rehab.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers have the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but fortunately there are more and more centers that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Therapy, study information and so on are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare 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 may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations like the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they prefer and meet with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.
