Drug Addiction Facts

  • Meth is a white, odorless powder which easily dissolves in water or alcohol.
  • Like heroin, morphine, and other opioid drugs, fentanyl binds to opioid receptors which are highly concentrated in areas of the brain that control pain and emotions.
  • 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 solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, since the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab center while undergoing treatment services. While this might seem ideal it may not provide the required change of surroundings than many people in treatment require to experience a productive rehab.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehab as part of a court order to satisfy part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug treatment often receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when cooperating with drug and alcohol treatment specifications enforced with them as part of sentencing and particularly naturally when successfully completing an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment program that's in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all 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 restrictions about just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the treatment program of preference.
