Drug Addiction Facts

  • In the United States, the rate of heroin use in high school aged children has increased dramatically over the last ten years, with over 2% of high school senior reporting such use at least once.
  • Everyone handles methadone differently, and one 50mg dose of methadone might be tolerable for one individual, but may cause a methadone overdose in another.
  • Fentanyl withdrawal symptoms can occur within just a few hours of the last dose, and will typically become worse and worse and more intense until they reach a plateau, and will typically subside within a few days to a week.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must address both disorders during rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are numerous drug rehabilitation programs that can specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse disorders face to enable them to not merely become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever center they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality treatment facility which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of alcohol and drug rehab service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. 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 just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.
