Drug Addiction Facts

  • The increased levels of the neurotransmitter dopamine caused by prescription stimulants use may in turn cause suppression of growth hormone secretion and directly affect height development in children.
  • A driver who is under the influence of marijuana loses the ability to "track" (stay in lane) through curves, to brake quickly, and to maintain speed and the proper distance between cars is affected.
  • 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 accessible to anybody who needs to be safely managed through detox services when seriously dependent to drugs and alcohol, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services as part of their rehabilitation procedure. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services available.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse due to problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the problem is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL as well as other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse treatment is necessary. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are getting the help they need in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehab programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality treatment program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind 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 expense of alcohol and drug rehabilitation if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could qualify for state insurance, they can talk with 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 rehab, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug rehab service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment facilities. Individuals might have to take part in a drug rehabilitation program that is within their network of providers and there may be other restrictions for example how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse rehab services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There could be some restrictions about how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it's clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehab facility of preference.
