Drug Addiction Facts

  • Heroin overdoses and overdose deaths are increasing in many areas of the country, due to high heroin purity, heroin at street level which is laced with other opioids such as fentanyl, increasing numbers of heroin abusers initiating use at a younger age, and inexperienced users switching from prescription opioids to heroin.
  • In 2011, 251 alcohol and/or drug intoxication deaths in Philadelphia showed the presence of heroin/morphine, which was an increase from 138 in 2010.
  • A driver who is under the influence of marijuana loses the ability to "track" (stay in lane) through curves, to brake quickly, and to maintain speed and the proper distance between cars is affected.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to level of care, since the individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in treatment require to have a productive rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL as well as other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is required. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the help they need in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab facility that's within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs as well as partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.
