Drug Addiction Facts

  • The use of sedatives used to treat anxiety, insomnia, and seizures and methadone can be a deadly combination, although physicians may prescribe such drugs in combination and therefore put patients at risk.
  • Just quitting codeine cold turkey once addicted is not considered treatment at all, and most addicts will often return to regular abuse of prescription codeine in short order.
  • 24% of patients involved in inpatient treatment are forced out of the program due to legal issues, incarceration, and termination of treatment.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a variety of settings along with various rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the various demands of clients with any type of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being paid by many insurance companies, there is no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Detoxification

Detoxification from alcohol and drugs is a course of action which can be made a lot more manageable and safely supervised when in a professional detoxification or drug rehab facility. Often detoxification isn't without risk, and even with good intentions individuals who undergo detoxification on their own so that they can get sober might really be putting their own health or perhaps their lives in danger. It is usually advisable to look for detoxification solutions inside a professional program to avoid such risks and also to have a smooth transition from detoxification to treatment at a top quality drug treatment program.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding level of care, because the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even if this might appear perfect it will not provide the much needed change of environment than lots of people in rehabilitation need to experience a productive rehab.

Residential Short-Term Treatment (30 Days Or Less)

Residential short-term rehabilitation for 30 days or less is an alternative which enables people in recovery to have the much needed change of environment necessary to have a shot at remaining abstinent. Residential treatment is the premiere option because individuals can feel comfortable and at home while receiving services. Residential short-term rehab for 30 days or less may not be lengthy enough for particular individuals with more serious addiction and dependency issues, and this should always be evaluated at the end of the 30 days to establish if more intensive rehabilitation is needed.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders during rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug rehabilitation facilities who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to enable them to not merely become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment program that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug treatment center that's within their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they like and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
