Drug Addiction Facts

  • The original and ultimate intention of methadone maintenance treatment programs was to reduce illegal heroin use and the crime, death, and disease associated with heroin addiction.
  • Some of the reasons individuals give for abusing prescription drugs include academic pressures, maintaining focus with late-night study sessions, weight loss, feeling of euphoria, to cope with stress, and in party and social scenes.
  • Medical examiners in Charleston, West Virginia listed methadone as contributing to 2,992 deaths in 2003, up from 790 in 1999. An estimated 82% of those deaths were listed as accidental, and most deaths involved combinations of methadone with other drugs, particularly prescription benzodiazepines.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehab have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are identified in the field of alcohol and drug treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders whilst in treatment to find resolution because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehab facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to be able to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem is often difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehab is needed. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they need in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, treatment programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included 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 solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.
