Drug Addiction Facts

  • Studies indicate that adolescent marijuana use and early use of other illicit drugs make an individual more likely to continue using marijuana in their mid-30s or beyond.
  • In 2006 the FDA warned the public that they had received many reports of death and life-threatening side effects in patients that have taken methadone as prescribed by their physicians for pain relief.
  • As of 2005, the National Institute of Health discovered that 44% of all inpatient treatment individuals successfully completed the facilities' programs, however, this figure does not show the long-term success rates of the centers.

Partial Hospitalization/Day Treatment

Partial hospitalization, or Day Treatment as it's occasionally called, is a type of alcohol and drug rehab facility set up for those who need and desire a comprehensive and structured rehabilitation plan and atmosphere yet don't need night and day care. It can help make individuals in recovery stay supported treatment course of action without interfering with other day to day activities they may need to maintain during rehabilitation. Partial hospitalization/Day Treatment is also an option for many who have completed an inpatient or residential program and need help with the smooth transition back into a normal drug-free way of life.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab 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 because they can decide on whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehabilitation programs will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain treatment facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another type of private medical health insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may choose to investigate the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they're able to to pay for a more quality rehabilitation program which will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug treatment programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the individual's treatment plan. Inpatient services 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 covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of drug and alcohol rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a possibility. When someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only within the state which provides the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment centers. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab program that's inside their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the length of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose an excellent facility they like and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular substance abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions can be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation facility of choice.
