Drug Addiction Facts

  • Fentanyl is an extremely dangerous substitute for heroin because it is much more potent than heroin, which often results in accidental overdoses and death as a result of respiratory depression.
  • Ecstasy causes many of its effects by releasing large amounts of the brain's reward chemical serotonin, after which the brain becomes significantly depleted of this important chemical which then causes negative behavioral aftereffects that users often experience for several days after taking the drug.
  • There is a significant market for codeine cough syrup in Houston, Texas for non-medical use, where it is usually called "lean".

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, since the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to stay in a rehab facility while undergoing treatment services. While this may seem perfect it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in recovery have to have to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug treatment programs have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more centers that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study information and the like are actually frequently accessible in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehab facilities will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality treatment facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals might have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility that is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good program they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the treatment facility of preference.
