Drug Addiction Facts

  • Most major metropolitan areas have inpatient drug rehabilitation centers within a short distance, though few are within the urban limits.
  • 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.
  • Like heroin and other opiates, if an user has developed a physical dependence to methadone and they stop taking it or decrease their dose they begin to experience methadone withdrawal. This happens after very short term use.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody who must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their treatment process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are receiving the support they require in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, treatment facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals might have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment program which is within their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are paid for 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 limitations as to just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment center of choice.
