Drug Addiction Facts

  • Medications called opiate receptor antagonists block the effects of opiate drugs, such as Naloxone for one, and overdoses of fentanyl should be treated immediately with an opiate antagonist.
  • In US Federal courts during 2007, 5,477 individuals were convicted of crack cocaine-related crimes, 95% of which were involved in crack cocaine trafficking.
  • The adverse effects of codeine and the risks of overdose are always exacerbated when combined with other substances, particularly alcohol.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, for the reason that individual will be able to keep their lifestyle in several ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab facility while undergoing rehabilitation services. Even if this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many people in recovery have to have to have a successful rehab.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who struggle with drug abuse could have unique obstacles they have to conquer when in rehab, which treatment professionals within the rehab they opt to be a part of must be keen of so that a complete recovery may be possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is advisable to choose a program that is familiar with helping seniors and older adults tackle the distinctive life and drug abuse issues that these clients face which might include a wider spectrum of solutions including medical care and so on.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse as a result of challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can sometimes be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL as well as other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are receiving the help they need in alcohol and drug rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when a person's insurance won't pay for the total cost of treatment or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people in fact have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will often provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present any other form of private medical health insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehab within a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to cover a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at alcohol and drug rehab programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are provided through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehabilitation center which is inside their network of providers and there can be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse rehab solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient programs along with partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and every one of these questions can be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
