  • Codeine is often prescribed in the form of syrup to treat the common cough, and "Purple Drank" is a slang term for codeine cough syrup which is combined with Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy for illicit abuse.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who needs to be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously dependent to drugs and alcohol, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions as part of their rehab process. You'll find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower 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 with no commitment of having to remain in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. Although this might seem ideal it will not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehab have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders while in rehabilitation in order to find resolution due to the fact one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are several drug treatment centers that can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to enable them to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem is often difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL as well as other assistance services available for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are receiving the support they need in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not 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 within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions like just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality program they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations regarding how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab center of preference.
