Drug Addiction Facts

  • 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.
  • Stimulant drugs such as crack and meth, can lead to delusional parasitosis; a mistaken belief they an user is infested with parasites also known as "coke bugs". These delusions are also often associated with high fevers and users often scratch themselves to the point of serious skin damage and bleeding.
  • The codeine concoction "Purple Drank", made popular by the hip hop community, has resulted in the deaths of several prominent users.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding level of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment center while undergoing rehab services. Even if this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in recovery 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 identified in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders whilst in rehab in order to find resolution because one typically exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to be able to not just become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehab program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

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

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with 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 can be some restrictions regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option available from numerous alcohol and drug treatment programs to help help clients afford rehabilitation where this might not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's price for rehab could be different and lower than somebody else whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to spend the money for full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
