Drug Addiction Facts

  • Studies indicate that children living with alcoholics score lower on tests in regards to family cohesion, intellectual-cultural orientation, active-recreational orientation, and independence.
  • Over half of all active duty military personnel binge drinking on a monthly basis.
  • Methadone stays in the system as long as 59 hours, but only provides pain relief for up to 8 hours. Patients may need more pain relief before the drug is cleared from the body, and therefore administer another dose too soon resulting in toxic levels of the drug in the system which can lead to life-threatening changes in breathing and heart function.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of intensity of care, for the reason that individual can keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehabilitation program while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in rehabilitation have to have to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders whilst in rehab to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol treatment programs who are able to specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face so that they can not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into rehabilitation due to a court ruling in order to meet a part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in alcohol and drug rehab often receive reduced penalties, fines etc. when being cooperative with drug and alcohol treatment specifications enforced with them in sentencing specifically naturally when successfully completing an alcohol and drug treatment program.

Self Payment

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

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehab programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered 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 rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehabilitation facility that's inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they like and speak with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehab 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 speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from a number of drug rehabilitation facilities in an effort to help clients pay for treatment where this may not have been doable initially. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation might be different and somebody else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full price of treatment. Registrars take into account additional factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug rehabilitation programs offer payment assistance to help clients who might possibly not have adequate resources to self pay for rehab or whose health insurance won't supply coverage or full coverage for their stay. For instance, Occasionally insurance only pays for a short-term program when in actuality a long-term facility is going to be the more ideal selection. To see what payment assistance can be offered, such as a sliding fee scale, check with the facility for particulars.
