Drug Addiction Facts

  • Psychotic symptoms associated with methamphetamine use may linger for months or years after someone who has been addicted to the drug stops using it.
  • When heroin is administered by being sniffed or smoked, the peak effects of the drug are usually felt within 15 minutes.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of having to be in a rehab program while undergoing rehab services. While this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of environment than many people in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services available for them when substance abuse treatment is necessary. Besides ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, treatment programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation facility that is in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including the length of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities 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 may be some restrictions regarding just how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option offered by a variety of alcohol and drug treatment centers in an effort to help individuals pay for treatment where this may not have been possible initially. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation may be different and less than another individual whose finances are better which makes them better able to spend the money for full expense of rehab. Registrars take into account additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
