Drug Addiction Facts

  • One of the more serious psychological side effects of stimulant drugs, particularly when abused, is the possibility of amphetamine induced psychosis. This type of psychosis can also occur at therapeutic doses as a result of long-term use of the drug. Individuals who experience this type of psychosis will exhibit paranoia, hallucinations and delusions. It is estimated that anywhere from 5 to 15% of users fail to recover completely.
  • Out of all illicit drugs of abuse which presented in emergency departments in 2008, Ecstasy was the seventh most commonly involved illicit drug.
  • Because meth use severely impairs judgment, transmission of HIV and hepatitis B and C can result from its abuse.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone who needs to be safely managed through detoxification services when seriously dependent to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services as part of their treatment procedure. You will find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these situations, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation centers will usually offer payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers accept Medicaid when the individual cannot self pay or present another type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol rehabilitation facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the person's treatment plan. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being the same as any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to participate in a drug treatment program that is in their network of providers and there can be other restrictions including just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality center they like and meet with a rehab specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the price of particular drug abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There might be some limitations as to how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear how much time and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
