Drug Addiction Facts

  • Fentanyl is often used in illicit settings as a direct substitute for heroin in opioid dependent individuals.
  • The desire for more diversified marijuana products with varying THC concentrations and even flavors has spurred a new market of synthetic marijuana products known as "spice".
  • Ecstasy affects many of the same areas of the brain that are targeted by other addictive drugs, and studies show that animals prefer the drug, much like they do cocaine, over other pleasurable stimuli, which is another hallmark of most addictive drugs.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, because the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this might appear ideal it will not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehabilitation have to have to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug treatment facilities have the staff or resources to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more programs that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study data and stuff like that are actually very often available in Spanish in both short and long terms programs which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility which will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some sort of drug rehab service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select an excellent facility they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some limitations regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option made available from a number of drug and alcohol treatment programs in an effort to help clients afford treatment where this might not have been possible initially. As an example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could possibly be different and less than someone else whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider additional factors in addition to income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
