Drug Addiction Facts

  • Some inpatient rehabilitation programs provide aftercare support.
  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • Some individuals take withdrawal medications while they live in an inpatient program, but other centers do not allow their patients to use any medications at all.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their rehabilitation procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use as a result of challenges that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem is often hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the support they require in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but people 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 individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with 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 take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment program that's in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good center they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some limitations concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of choice.
