Drug Addiction Facts

  • Most major metropolitan areas have inpatient drug rehabilitation centers within a short distance, though few are within the urban limits.
  • Fentanyl is an extremely dangerous substitute for heroin because it is much more potent than heroin, which often results in accidental overdoses and death as a result of respiratory depression.
  • Like heroin and other opiates, if an user has developed a physical dependence to methadone and they stop taking it or decrease their dose they begin to experience methadone withdrawal. This happens after very short term use.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in a number of settings and with various rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the various demands of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being included in many insurance companies, you shouldn't have to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who needs it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, as the individual is able to preserve their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even though this might seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehab require to have a productive rehab.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any sort of substance abuse, it is crucial that they obtain high quality care to halt the situation in its tracks so that it doesn't get any worse and perhaps jeopardize their future. Because adolescent substance abuse which continues often continues into one's adult life, parents must stay astute and get their adolescent rehab as soon as an issue is observed in a program which addresses adolescent drug abuse. Many facilities which deal with adolescents supply both inpatient and residential treatment, which has been proven to be the most beneficial environments for rehab clients of this age.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehab inside a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehabilitation center that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from 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 usually only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol treatment service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment center that's in their network of providers and there might be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and meet with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility provided by a number of drug treatment facilities in an effort to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been doable initially. For instance, one client's price for rehabilitation might be different and less than somebody else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider other factors apart from income including number of dependents to determine the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug treatment centers provide payment assistance to help clients who might possibly not have enough funds to self pay for rehabilitation or whose health insurance won't provide coverage or full coverage for his or her stay. For instance, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term facility when in actuality a long-term program will likely be the more appropriate option. To determine what payment assistance may be offered, for instance a sliding fee scale, talk with the program for details.
