Drug Addiction Facts

  • "Bumping" is when an Ecstasy user takes more than one pill at a time.
  • High levels of Ecstasy in the blood stream can increase the risk of seizures and the ability of the heart to maintain its normal rhythms.
  • Prescription opioid pain medications such as Oxycontin and Vicodin can have effects similar to heroin, and statistics and studies indicate that abuse of these drugs may open the door to heroin abuse.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who has to be safely managed through detox services when heavily dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who requires a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who has a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health services as part of their treatment procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must handle both disorders whilst in rehabilitation in order to find resolution simply because one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug rehabilitation facilities who are able to specifically address the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues face in order to not simply become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse because of the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and other assistance services available for them when drug abuse treatment is needed. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they require in alcohol and drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only cover some of it. In these situations, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for 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 alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone has no 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. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug treatment centers. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program that's in their network of providers and there might be other limitations like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment center of preference.
