Drug Addiction Facts

  • Freebase cocaine is the cocaine compound that has not been neutralized by an acid to make the Hydrochloride salt, a form of cocaine which is smokable.
  • 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.
  • There are some inpatient programs that do not require a long period of admission, however, in these programs, the patient might stay at the facility for a few weeks, and then transition to an outpatient program for additional intensive care.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone who has to be safely managed through detox services when seriously addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services as part of their rehabilitation procedure. You'll find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue can be hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services might include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the support they need in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility that's within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

Military Insurance (E.G., Va, Tricare)

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations about how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab center of choice.
