Drug Addiction Facts

  • Former and current heroin users describe the horrors of heroin addiction withdrawal as being far less painful and difficult than methadone withdrawal.
  • Methadone stays in the system as long as 59 hours, but only provides pain relief for up to 8 hours. Patients may need more pain relief before the drug is cleared from the body, and therefore administer another dose too soon resulting in toxic levels of the drug in the system which can lead to life-threatening changes in breathing and heart function.
  • Studies indicate that stress appears to increase the oxidative damage caused by Ecstasy in the brain.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services with regards to level of care, since the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to remain in a treatment center while receiving treatment services. Even if this might appear perfect it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in treatment need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some rehabilitation centers will take Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present any other kind of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment program which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being just like any other type 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 can be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may 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 usually only within the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug rehabilitation service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals may have to participate in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that's in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to ascertain if their insurance covers it.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance option offered by a number of drug and alcohol rehab centers in order to help individuals pay for rehab where this might not have been possible originally. For instance, one client's price for treatment may be different and another individual whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to pay the full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars take into consideration variables apart from income including number of dependents to ascertain the ultimate cost using the sliding scale.
