Drug Addiction Facts

  • Many individuals who are addicted to opiates prefer the high they get from combining methadone and heroin because they claim it drastically increases the euphoric effects of heroin, which in turn has caused many fatal overdoses.
  • About 1 in 10 teens uses cough syrup or cold medicine to get high, including cough syrups containing codeine.
  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is required. Besides ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they require in alcohol and drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present any other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in this case individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only inside the state which provides the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and speak with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.
