Drug Addiction Facts

  • As of 2010, marijuana was used by nearly 80% of current illicit drug users.
  • A new study conducted by the Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital and the National Institutes of Health indicates that the misdiagnosis of ADHD combined with prescription stimulants use in children puts these children at an elevated risk of developing depressive symptoms later in life as adults.
  • Sometimes the bottles used to produce meth using the "shake and bake" method explode, badly burning the meth cook and anyone else in the line of fire.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions with regards to intensity of care, as the individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a treatment center while receiving treatment services. Although this might seem ideal it might not provide the required change of atmosphere than many individuals in rehabilitation need to experience a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders during rehab to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are lots of drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs that can specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use disorders face to be able to not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never want to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will often offer payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation inside a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehabilitation center that is within their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality facility they like and speak with a rehab counselor to ascertain if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There can be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option provided by numerous drug and alcohol rehab centers to help help clients afford treatment where this may not have been doable initially. For example, one client's price for rehab might be different and less than another person whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to spend the money for full expense of treatment. Registrars take into account additional factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost using the sliding scale.
