Drug Addiction Facts

  • When abused, prescription stimulants can increase brain dopamine in a manner that is similar to other drugs of abuse such as methamphetamine, which in turn raises the risk of addiction.
  • Opiate narcotic abuse, such as abuse of Codeine products, is second only to marijuana in terms of past-year use in the United States.
  • Alcohol destroys brain cells and unlike many other types of cells in the body, brain cells do not regenerate.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a treatment center while receiving rehab services. Even though this might appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of environment than a lot of people in rehabilitation have to have to experience a productive rehab.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehabilitation due to a court order to satisfy part of their sentencing for a drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehabilitation frequently receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when being cooperative with drug rehabilitation specifications enforced on them as part of sentencing and also of course when successfully graduating a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehab programs will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehab program which is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.
