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.

Outpatient

Even though this might appear perfect it will not provide the required change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery have to have to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must tackle both disorders during rehab to find resolution because one often exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are lots of drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities who are able to specifically address the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face in order to not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals may wish to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehab facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment 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 setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals might have to take part in a drug treatment center that is in their network of providers and there could be other limitations including the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations about how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility made available from a variety of alcohol and drug rehab centers in an effort to help clients afford rehab where this might not have been possible initially. For example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could be different and another person whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay for the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars consider other factors besides income including amount of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
