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.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone that has to be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously addicted to drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health services during their treatment procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehab is required. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals might have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab program which is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab program of choice.
