Drug Addiction Facts

  • Prescription stimulants are commonly abused because of how easily they are accessed, and can be obtained easily through friends and family, direct prescriptions from a physician, or a prescription "drug dealer." However, the most common source of prescription stimulants is the medicine cabinets of the individual's friends and family.
  • Risk of contracting hepatitis C (HCV) among injecting cocaine users begins with the first injection, and within 2 years, nearly 40 percent of injection drug users are exposed to HCV.
  • When used during pregnancy, methadone can cross the placenta to the unborn child and cause serious and often life threatening side effects.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone that must be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely addicted to drugs and alcohol, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as someone who has a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health solutions as part of their treatment procedure. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse treatment is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the support they require in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover some of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will frequently offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality treatment program which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation 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 treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to take part in a drug and alcohol treatment program which is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions like the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select an excellent center they like and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers as well as partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is permitted, and all of these questions can be answered before you start rehabilitation so that it's clear how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of preference.
