Drug Addiction Facts

  • Cocaine abusers are at increased risk for contracting infectious diseases such as human immunodeficiency virus/acquired immune deficiency syndrome (HIV/AIDS) and viral hepatitis, not only from sharing contaminated needles and drug paraphernalia but also from engaging in risky behaviors as a result of intoxication.
  • The first step in substance treatment is detoxification, which is many times medically supervised or performed in an inpatient treatment facility.
  • There are some inpatient programs that do not require a long period of admission, however, in these programs, the patient might stay at the facility for a few weeks, and then transition to an outpatient program for additional intensive care.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during rehabilitation in order to find resolution due to the fact one often exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several drug rehab centers who can specifically hone in on the challenges that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to enable them to not only become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who battle with drug use may have distinctive challenges they must conquer while in treatment, which rehabilitation professionals within the rehab they decide to take part in must be keen of so that a complete recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is advisable to decide on a facility which is familiar with helping seniors and older adults deal with the unique life and drug use problems that these clients face which can include a wider spectrum of solutions including medical care and the like.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab facilities accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment program that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehab center which is in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions for example the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they like and speak with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.
