Drug Addiction Facts

  • Inpatient substance treatment facilities offer a safe environment, where patients will not be exposed to potentially dangerous situations during their treatments as they would be on the outside.
  • As with other opiate narcotics, methadone creates a feeling of well-being and binds to the same receptors in the brain as heroin and other drugs.
  • Crystal meth is a more potent version of meth, and typically resembles small fragments of shiny white pebbles or rocks which can be smoked using glass pipes that are very similar to the pipes that are used to smoke crack cocaine.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who has to be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely dependent to drugs, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services during their treatment process. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of level of care, as the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to stay in a treatment center while receiving rehab services. Even though this might appear perfect it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation require to have a productive rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues are what are identified in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders while in treatment to find resolution because one usually triggers the other. Fortunately, there are numerous alcohol and drug rehab centers who can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face so that they can not simply become sober but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is necessary. Apart from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the help they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab programs have the staff or resources to focus on the requirements of Spanish speaking clientele, but luckily there are more and more centers that will do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than in the past. Counselling, study data and so on are now very often available in Spanish in both long and short terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Other Languages

In every city in the U.S. there is someone being affected by substance abuse that isn't necessarily fluent in English, who may require rehab in whichever language it is that they are fluent in so that their needs may be met properly while in rehabilitation. Fortunately, there are many drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities that have counselors on staff who speak other languages to make alcohol and drug rehabilitation the very best experience possible for any individual. Simply look for a quality alcohol and drug treatment facility and inquire if it is feasible to receive treatment in other languages.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women face. In addition, rehab centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in this case individuals might want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment program that's within their network of providers and there might be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent center they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some limitations about the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehab center of choice.
