Drug Addiction Facts

  • Research indicates that the chemical and molecular changes in the brain caused by chronic meth use may persist long after meth abuse has stopped.
  • Fentanyl is an extremely dangerous substitute for heroin because it is much more potent than heroin, which often results in accidental overdoses and death as a result of respiratory depression.
  • In 2009, 750,000 methadone prescriptions were written for pain relief, but only 250,000 people were treated with the drug for opiate addiction.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings along with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehab facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind 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 can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program which is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they like and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from many different alcohol and drug rehab programs in order to help individuals pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been doable initially. As an example, one client's fee for rehab might be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to spend the money for full cost of rehab. Registrars take into account other factors aside from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
