Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.
  • Some addicts intentionally make the choice to use a form of heroin or cocaine which has been laced with fentanyl, in a desperate search for an increasingly better high.
  • All forms of marijuana contain THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and more than 400 other chemicals besides THC.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody that has to be safely managed through detox services when heavily addicted to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services as part of their rehabilitation process. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of problems that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this problem can often be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehab is required. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they require in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, treatment centers will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at alcohol and drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only inside 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 kind of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehab center that is in their network of providers and there may be other restrictions such as just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they prefer and speak with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some limitations concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehab center of choice.
