Drug Addiction Facts

  • In 2006, 40% of all poisoning deaths in the U.S. involved opioid painkillers such as Methadone.

  • Prescriptions of Ritalin have quadrupled in the last decade from 158,000 in 1999 to 661,463 in 2010 in the UK.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to intensity of care, for the reason that individual can keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation program while undergoing treatment services. While this might appear ideal it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in recovery have to have to experience a productive rehab.

Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment

Partial hospitalization, or Day Treatment as it's occasionally called, is a type of drug rehab program meant for those who need and want a comprehensive and organized rehab plan and environment yet don't need around the clock care. It can help make men and women in treatment remain supported during the course of action without upsetting other activities they might need to maintain when in treatment. Partial hospitalization/Day Treatment is also an option for many who have completed an inpatient or residential program and need help with the smooth transition back into a normal drug-free lifestyle.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, treatment programs will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the person's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that's in their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.
