Drug Addiction Facts

  • At an inpatient drug rehab, each patient goes through intensive individual addiction treatment with a counselor to discuss the issues that led to drug/alcohol addiction and learn to identify and avoid substance abuse triggers.
  • Inpatient treatment programs often require the patient to live at the center fulltime for a fixed period of time after the withdrawal phase is complete, typically 1, 2 or 3 months.
  • Nearly 25% of individuals who use heroin become dependent on it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions with regards to intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehab center while receiving rehab services. Although this may appear ideal it may not provide the required change of environment than lots of people in rehabilitation require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders when it's in treatment in order to find resolution because one often triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous drug and alcohol rehab centers who are able to specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face to enable them to not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may choose to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment program which is in their network of providers and there might be other limitations like how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you start treatment so that it's clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment center of choice.
