Drug Addiction Facts

  • Withdrawing from Fentanyl is very similar to that of heroin and it can be very uncomfortable and painful.
  • A recent study of cocaine abusers found elevated levels of serum C-reactive protein, a protein associated with inflammation, associated with endothelial abnormalities and coronary artery calcification. Both contribute to heart disease.
  • The length of stay and intensity of an inpatient treatment is defined by the severity and complexity of psychological, medical, and substance abuse issues of patients.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone who has to be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their rehab procedure. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions regarding intensity of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this might seem ideal it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than a lot of people in treatment have to have to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders are what are recognized in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution simply because one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are several alcohol and drug rehab centers who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to be able to not just become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who struggle with substance abuse may have distinctive challenges they must conquer during rehab, which treatment professionals within the program they opt to be a part of must be keen of so that a complete recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is prudent to select a rehab which is familiar with helping seniors and older adults tackle the unique life and drug use problems that these clients face which can include a broader spectrum of solutions including health care and the like.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services readily available for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the support they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehab programs will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered 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 rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehab program that's inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of preference.
