Drug Addiction Facts

  • Stimulant drugs are one of the few causes of cardiac death in otherwise normal children, making it impossible to detect the risk before it happens.
  • Codeine is a legal prescription drug but it is addictive, with prolonged use resulting in the same adverse effects as any other illicit drug.
  • The specific cardiovascular problems which may be caused by prescription stimulants have been highlighted in the FDA's "black box" warnings which include the risk of heart defects, heart attacks, stroke, high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and sudden death in people with a prior history of heart related problems.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility that is in their network of providers and there might be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and consult with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.
