Drug Addiction Facts

  • Research indicates that the chemical and molecular changes in the brain caused by chronic meth use may persist long after meth abuse has stopped.
  • Fentanyl is an extremely dangerous substitute for heroin because it is much more potent than heroin, which often results in accidental overdoses and death as a result of respiratory depression.
  • In 2009, 750,000 methadone prescriptions were written for pain relief, but only 250,000 people were treated with the drug for opiate addiction.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a variety of settings along with different rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying demands of clients with any kind of and degree of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential centers now being covered by many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of intensity of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to experience a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehab facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

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

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment facility which is inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations as to just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the rehab program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous drug and alcohol rehab programs in order to help clients pay for rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's fee for rehab could possibly be different and lower than someone else whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account other factors aside from income including number of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
