Drug Addiction Facts

  • The biggest reason to consider using an inpatient drug and alcohol rehab center or program is the higher success rate. Statistics show that people who spend more than 30 days at an inpatient program, almost double their rate of long-term success and they are also not nearly as likely to relapse.
  • When prescription stimulant pills are crushed and injected, insoluble fillers in the tablets can block small blood vessels and cause serious health complications.
  • Extensive studies indicate that babies born to mothers who abuse cocaine during pregnancy are often prematurely delivered, have low birth weights and smaller head circumferences, and are often shorter in length.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to level of care, as the individual is able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehab center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this might appear perfect it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in treatment require to have a successful rehab.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse treatment is required. Aside from ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the support they need in drug treatment.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs have the staff or wherewithal to focus on the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but luckily there are more and more programs that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Therapy, study data and the like are actually very often accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish treatment is also available around the country.

Other Languages

In each and every city in America there is someone experiencing drug abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may require rehab in whatever language it is they are fluent in so that their needs can be catered to properly while in treatment. Fortunately, there are lots of drug and alcohol treatment programs that have counselors on staff who speak other languages to make drug rehab the most effective experience possible for any individual. Simply discover a top quality drug rehabilitation center and find out if it is possible to receive rehab in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire 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 great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people encounter. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation program that will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a good program they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option made available from a variety of drug treatment programs to help help clients pay for rehab where this may not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's fee for rehabilitation may be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay for the full expense of rehab. Registrars take into consideration additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
