Drug Addiction Facts

  • The elevated risk of heart attack among marijuana users may be caused by marijuana raising blood pressure and heart rate and reducing the blood's capacity to carry oxygen.
  • More than half a million visits to hospital emergency rooms a year are drug-related.
  • Codeine is often prescribed in the form of syrup to treat the common cough, and "Purple Drank" is a slang term for codeine cough syrup which is combined with Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy for illicit abuse. The concoction takes on a purplish hue, hence the name Purple Drank.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehab solutions with regards to level of care, for the reason that individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while undergoing rehab services. While this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation need to experience a successful 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 part of it. In these situations, it may seem like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present another type of private health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals might have to participate in a drug rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with 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 representative. There could be some restrictions regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility made available from numerous alcohol and drug rehab facilities in an effort to help individuals afford rehabilitation where this might not have been possible originally. For example, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and lower than another individual whose financial situation is better making them better able to pay for the full price of rehab. Registrars consider additional circumstances besides income including amount of dependents to determine the ultimate cost and using the sliding scale.
