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.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment program that will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in 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 drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations for example how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they prefer and meet with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of preference.
