Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.
  • Some addicts intentionally make the choice to use a form of heroin or cocaine which has been laced with fentanyl, in a desperate search for an increasingly better high.
  • All forms of marijuana contain THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and more than 400 other chemicals besides THC.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, because the individual can keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in rehabilitation require to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders when it's in rehab in order to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug and alcohol treatment programs who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to be able to not merely become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

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 seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous drug rehab facilities to help help clients afford rehab where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's price for rehab may be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay for the full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration additional circumstances in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
