Drug Addiction Facts

  • Most inpatient rehabilitation facilities follow the 12-step model of recovery. The patient is expected to attend at least 2 groups with their fellow patients daily.
  • 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.
  • When an user stops taking codeine after long-term use withdrawal symptoms including cravings, sweating, difficulty sleeping, nausea, diarrhea, muscle spasms and irritability often occur.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must tackle both disorders during treatment to find resolution because one typically triggers the other. Luckily, there are many drug treatment facilities who are able to specifically hone in on the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to enable them to not merely become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Gays and Lesbians

It is crucial that gays and lesbians obtain quality rehabilitation services within a rehabilitation environment which is discreet and with treatment professionals available to them who understand the unique problems which they experience in life. Because substance abuse for gays and lesbians is oftentimes triggered by the problems they face because of their sexual preference, a rehab which can help them handle these problems and give them the confidence they may have lacked prior to arriving in rehab can be quite a crucial aspect of treatment for gay and lesbian clients.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehab is needed. Apart from ASL, such services can include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the support they need in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab programs will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present some other kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't an option. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually 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 treatment service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol treatment program that is within their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and meet with a treatment counselor to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some limitations as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the treatment program of preference.
