Drug Addiction Facts

  • During the first half of 2012, meth ranked first in drug-related treatment admissions in Hawaii and San Diego.
  • Ecstasy causes many of its effects by releasing large amounts of the brain's reward chemical serotonin, after which the brain becomes significantly depleted of this important chemical which then causes negative behavioral aftereffects that users often experience for several days after taking the drug.
  • As part of a methadone maintenance program an individual only needs to take it once a day.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services regarding intensity of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a treatment program while receiving rehab services. Even if this might appear perfect it will not provide the required change of environment than many people in rehab have to have to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people encounter. In addition, rehab facilities will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for 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 treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of alcohol and drug rehab service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to take part in a drug rehab center that's in their network of providers and there could be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good center they like and meet with a treatment specialist to ascertain 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 solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions as to how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehabilitation is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning treatment so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility provided by many different drug and alcohol treatment programs to help help clients afford rehabilitation where this may not have been possible originally. For example, one client's price for treatment may be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay for the full price of treatment. Registrars consider variables aside from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
