Drug Addiction Facts

  • Codeine is a highly effective drug when used properly and short-term to treat legitimate medical conditions, but is not meant to be used long term.
  • An estimated 10 percent of 9 to 10 year olds have begun drinking alcohol.
  • Inpatient rehab programs usually last for 30 to 90 days, although some programs may last for as long as a year. The time of the program depends on the patient's specific needs and whether or not the patient has made enough progress.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who must be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously addicted to drugs and alcohol, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services during their treatment procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, since the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation require to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehab centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment center which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab center that is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good program they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.
