Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.
  • Some addicts intentionally make the choice to use a form of heroin or cocaine which has been laced with fentanyl, in a desperate search for an increasingly better high.
  • All forms of marijuana contain THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and more than 400 other chemicals besides THC.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any type of drug abuse, it is essential that they obtain high quality care to stop the situation in its tracks so that it doesn't get any worse and perhaps put their future in jeopardy. Because adolescent substance abuse which continues often continues into one's adult life, parents must continue to be astute and get their adolescent treatment when a problem is noticed in a center which addresses adolescent drug use. Many programs which deal with adolescents offer both inpatient and residential rehab, that has been proven to be the perfect environments for rehabilitation clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during treatment in order to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are many drug and alcohol treatment centers that can specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face in order to not only become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who struggle with substance abuse might have unique obstacles they have to conquer while in rehabilitation, which treatment specialists within the program they choose to be a part of must be keen of to ensure that a complete recovery is achievable. So for seniors and older adults, it is advisable to decide on a center that is used to helping seniors and older adults handle the distinctive life and substance abuse issues that these clients face that might include a wider spectrum of services including medical treatment and the like.

Women

Women need to have high quality rehabilitation in rehab but will also need special attention to the distinctive issues they face because of gender. Women and men not just face varying and distinctive challenges in life as a result of gender, but in addition may abuse drugs and alcohol for very different reasons. drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which appeal to women and the specific and unique needs that women face often helps significantly on a women's path to permanent abstinence and a higher quality of life.

Men

Just as women and men encounter varying and different challenges in everyday life which can be specific to their gender, men and women may also face unique challenges in treatment which are gender-specific, which is why a facility designed specifically with these unique needs and obstacles at heart can be very ideal for someone seeking a powerful rehab solution.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women face. In addition, rehab programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that's in their network of providers and there might be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent center they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of choice.
