Drug Addiction Facts

  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • Physical addiction is characterized by the presence of tolerance (needing more and more of the drug to achieve the same effect).
  • At an inpatient drug rehab, each patient goes through intensive individual addiction treatment with a counselor to discuss the issues that led to drug/alcohol addiction and learn to identify and avoid substance abuse triggers.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment solutions regarding intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to stay in a treatment facility while receiving rehab services. Even if this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in treatment require to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment programs will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in this instance individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

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

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility which is within their network of providers and there could be other limitations including how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions about just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the treatment facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from many different drug rehab centers to help help clients pay for treatment where this might not have been possible originally. For example, one client's price for treatment may be different and another individual whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full price of rehab. Registrars consider variables aside from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
