Drug Addiction Facts

  • The rate of emergency department visits associated with non-medical use of fentanyl has increased significantly in recent years, from an estimated 15,947 in 2007 to an estimated 20,034 in 2011.
  • Physical addiction is characterized by the presence of tolerance (needing more and more of the drug to achieve the same effect).
  • Many individuals who transition to heroin from prescription opioid use report that they had crushed prescription opioid pills to snort or inject the powder, which provided their initiation into injection heroin use.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehab services. Even if this may seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab programs will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab center which is inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance will take care of it.
