Drug Addiction Facts

  • Inpatient drug/alcohol programs, sometimes are extended for patients who are receiving some benefit from the program but have not yet made enough progress to leave the rehab facility.
  • Individuals with alcoholism or who abuse alcohol are less likely to be tested for HIV and to seek treatment, and are less compliant with treatment regimens than those without alcohol use disorders.
  • As with other opiate narcotics, methadone creates a feeling of well-being and binds to the same receptors in the brain as heroin and other drugs.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment program while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation need to have a productive rehabilitation.

Adolescents

When adolescents get involved in any type of drug use, it is important that they receive high quality care to stop the situation in its tracks so that it doesn't worsen and perhaps jeopardize their future. Due to the fact adolescent drug abuse which continues often carries on into adulthood, mothers and fathers must remain astute and get their adolescent rehab the moment a problem is noticed in a program which handles adolescent drug use. Many facilities which treat adolescents supply both inpatient and residential treatment, that has been proven to be the perfect settings for rehabilitation clients of this age.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse problems are what are known in the field of drug rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must deal with both disorders when it's in rehab to find resolution because one usually exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are many drug rehab centers that can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face in order to not just become sober but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and never wish to self medicate with drugs and alcohol.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders are often given the possibility or ordered to rehab as a term of their sentencing. Sometimes, the offender can pick which treatment program they would like to enroll in. Upon successful completion, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from reduced sentencing options in order to progress in their lives without getting penalized any more.

Criminal Justice Clients

Criminal justice clients get into treatment due to a court order to fulfill part of their sentencing for any drug offense. Criminal justice clients in drug rehabilitation frequently receive reduced sentences, fines etc. when cooperating with drug and alcohol rehabilitation specifications enforced with them in sentencing and also naturally when successfully completing an alcohol and drug rehab program.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug rehab facilities have the staff or resources to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clients, but fortunately there are more and more programs that are able to do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than ever before. Therapy, study data and so on are actually frequently accessible in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish rehab is also available around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for some of it. In these situations, it may appear like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some rehab programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private medical insurance. Medicaid might 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 can to cover a more quality treatment facility which will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug rehab centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with establishing the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not an option. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they should consult their Social Services office within their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some type of drug and alcohol rehab service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals could have to participate in a drug rehabilitation center that is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they like and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain substance abuse treatment services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations about the length of time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear just how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility offered by a variety of drug treatment programs to help help individuals afford rehab where this may not have been possible initially. For example, one client's price for rehabilitation may be different and lower than someone else whose finances are better which makes them more prepared to pay the full price of rehabilitation. Registrars take into account other factors aside from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
