  • When drugs like Ritalin and Adderall are prescribed in routine pediatric doses, they commonly cause hypertension, which can lead to an enlarged heart.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in a variety of settings and with different treatment lengths and plans to accommodate the varying needs of clients with any sort of and level of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being paid by many insurance plans, there's no need to put off getting substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Halfway House

A halfway house is a place which allows for an easy transition if somebody has become sober on their own or has finished a drug and alcohol rehab facility and requires help re-acclimating into a regular lifestyle. Residing in a halfway house, or sober living facility as they are sometimes called, an aspect of sentencing if a person has been found guilty of drug charges as well. If guidance is needed locating a halfway house, talk to an alcohol and drug rehabilitation center and meet with a rehab specialist that can point you in the right direction.

Residential Long-Term Treatment (More Than 30 Days)

Residential long-term rehabilitation, which lasts for over four weeks, is an option that provides the commensurate intensity of care and suitable environment for anyone being affected by a significant addiction and dependency issue. Because people will remain within a residential long-term treatment center for about 120 days and even longer in some cases, these kinds of facilities provide all the amenities needed to help client's stay as relaxed and amenable as it could possibly be while also delivering quality treatment to enable them to conquer their addiction permanently.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't cover the total cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers accept Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab center that will get better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's rehab plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab facilities. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug rehab center that's inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a good program they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
