Drug Addiction Facts

  • Older adults who drink have an increased sensitivity to alcohol due to the fact that aging can lower the body's tolerance for alcohol, and therefore experience the effects of alcohol more readily than when they were younger.
  • Many fentanyl overdoses are initially classified as heroin overdoses, until the truth is discovered.
  • The majority of primary methamphetamine admissions to substance abuse treatment facilities in 2011 were male (53 percent).

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anybody who must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to drugs, or who needs a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services during their rehab procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use because of the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is needed. Apart from ASL, such services might include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the support they require in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private medical insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab center that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as 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 may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehabilitation program that is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations regarding just how long a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it's clear the length of time and individual can remain in the treatment program of preference.
