Drug Addiction Facts

  • Many individuals who are addicted to opiates prefer the high they get from combining methadone and heroin because they claim it drastically increases the euphoric effects of heroin, which in turn has caused many fatal overdoses.
  • About 1 in 10 teens uses cough syrup or cold medicine to get high, including cough syrups containing codeine.
  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in many different settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance plans, you don't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of level of care, for the reason that individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a rehab facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in recovery need to experience a productive rehab.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any kind of drug use, it is vital that they obtain high quality care to halt the problem in its tracks so that it doesn't get any worse and perhaps put their future in jeopardy. Due to the fact adolescent substance abuse which continues often carries on into one's adult life, mothers and fathers must remain astute and get their adolescent treatment as soon as an issue is observed in a facility which addresses adolescent substance abuse. Several programs which deal with adolescents offer both inpatient and residential treatment, that has been shown to be the most effective settings for treatment clients of this age.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Besides ASL, such services might include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the help they require in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals might have to participate in a drug treatment facility which is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good center they prefer and speak with a treatment counselor to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations about how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of choice.
