Drug Addiction Facts

  • Stimulant drugs are one of the few causes of cardiac death in otherwise normal children, making it impossible to detect the risk before it happens.
  • Codeine is a legal prescription drug but it is addictive, with prolonged use resulting in the same adverse effects as any other illicit drug.
  • The specific cardiovascular problems which may be caused by prescription stimulants have been highlighted in the FDA's "black box" warnings which include the risk of heart defects, heart attacks, stroke, high blood pressure, increased heart rate, and sudden death in people with a prior history of heart related problems.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to remain in a treatment facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might seem perfect it may not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in treatment require to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug rehabilitation centers have the staff or resources to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but fortunately there are more and more facilities that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study information and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which provide inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women face. Likewise, rehab centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab program that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug rehabilitation center that is within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good center they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by a variety of alcohol and drug treatment programs in an effort to help clients pay for rehab where this might not have been possible originally. For example, one client's fee for treatment could possibly be different and less than another person whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars consider other factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
