Drug Addiction Facts

  • Within just the first six months of 2013, 3.4 million fentanyl prescriptions were dispensed in the U.S.
  • Many children being "treated" with prescription stimulants experience what is known as a "rebound effect", which is caused when the medication wears off during the day and the child experiences a period of aggression and irritability.
  • Prescription stimulant drugs are amphetamine drugs, primarily with the active ingredient methylphenidate, known under the brand names Adderall, Ritalin and Concerta.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone that has to be safely managed through detox services when heavily addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions as part of their rehabilitation procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab services in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to remain in a rehab facility while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear perfect it will not provide the required change of environment than a lot of people in recovery need to experience a productive rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are known in the field of drug and alcohol treatment as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders while in rehabilitation to find resolution due to the fact one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs who can specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug abuse issues face to enable them to not simply become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never consider it wise to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse treatment is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired folks are receiving the support they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, treatment centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may choose to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehab facility which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the person's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

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 kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but usually only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and consult with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions about the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab program of preference.
