Drug Addiction Facts

  • All inpatient treatment facilities should be very aware that no real rehab can take place unless or until the patient is physically stable. Therefore, once a new patient has been assessed and properly evaluated, they undergo any and all medically monitored detox. The detoxification process can take anywhere from 3 to 14 days depending the kind and amount of drugs and or alcohol the patient has been abusing.
  • Heroin cravings have sometimes been reported to persist for many years after an individual has stopped using the drug, particularly upon exposure to triggers such as stress or people and things that are associated with drug use. This is why treatment for heroin addiction is so crucial.
  • In 2009, 750,000 methadone prescriptions were written for pain relief, but only 250,000 people were treated with the drug for opiate addiction.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody who must be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously addicted to drugs, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services as part of their rehabilitation procedure. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse due to the problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse rehab is required. Aside from ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they require in drug rehab.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab centers have the staff or wherewithal to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but fortunately there are more and more centers that can do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study information and the like are actually frequently available in Spanish in both short and long terms centers which deliver inpatient or residential rehab and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. Likewise, treatment programs will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present any other type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but generally only in 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 form of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehabilitation center that's inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There can be some restrictions as to the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehab facility of choice.
