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.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment center that is inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and speak with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs offer payment assistance to help clients who may not have sufficient funds to self pay for rehabilitation or whose medical insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for their stay. For instance, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term program when in fact a long-term center will probably be the more appropriate choice. To find out what payment assistance could be offered, like a sliding fee scale, seek advice from the center for details.
