Drug Addiction Facts

  • Crack cocaine can be purchased in small amounts that are enough for two smoke sessions for an average of $5 to $15, and may be as much as 90 percent pure which is up to six times stronger than powder cocaine that is normally purchased on the street.
  • The first few days and weeks of recovery are the hardest at an inpatient rehab, which is why longer inpatient programs tend to be more successful.
  • Codeine is a short-acting pain medication, which means its effects last only a few hours per dose.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of intensity of care, as the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab program while receiving treatment services. Although this may seem perfect it may not provide the required change of atmosphere than many people in treatment require to have a productive rehab.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the requirements of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more programs that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study info and so on are now frequently accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms programs which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people really have a much more leverage simply because they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehab centers will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehab program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in setting up the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some form of drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug treatment facilities. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality center they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehab facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by numerous drug rehab facilities in order to help clients pay for treatment where this may not have been possible initially. As an example, one client's price for rehab could be different and another person whose financial situation is better which makes them better able to pay for the full price of treatment. Registrars take into account variables apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
