Drug Addiction Facts

  • Older adults who drink have an increased sensitivity to alcohol due to the fact that aging can lower the body's tolerance for alcohol, and therefore experience the effects of alcohol more readily than when they were younger.
  • Many fentanyl overdoses are initially classified as heroin overdoses, until the truth is discovered.
  • The majority of primary methamphetamine admissions to substance abuse treatment facilities in 2011 were male (53 percent).

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment program while receiving treatment services. Even though this might appear ideal it might not provide the required change of surroundings than lots of people in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many men and women face. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 expense of alcohol and 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 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 will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab center which is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions regarding just how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by a variety of drug and alcohol rehab centers in order to help individuals pay for treatment where this may not have been doable originally. As an example, one client's price for rehab could possibly be different and someone else whose finances are better making them better able to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars take into account additional circumstances in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
