Drug Addiction Facts

  • Marijuana, alcohol and cocaine were the most common drugs co-involved in Ecstasy related emergency department visits in 2008, with marijuana being involved in 38.2%, alcohol being involved in 38.1%, and cocaine being involved in 31.8%.
  • Because prescription stimulants suppress appetite, increase wakefulness, focus and attention, they are often abused for weight loss and for performance enhancement in sports.
  • The effects of marijuana when it is smoked can last up to a few hours, and when consumed in foods or beverages are often latent, but these effects may last a bit longer than when it is smoked.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody who should be safely managed through detox services when seriously addicted to drugs, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health solutions during their rehab process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehab is needed. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the support they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug treatment center that's in their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good program they like and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions concerning how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab program of choice.
