Drug Addiction Facts

  • Because many addicts will simply choose to take more fentanyl to ease symptoms, it is always best to undergo fentanyl withdrawal with the help of professional treatment counselors or medical professionals who can help ease symptoms and cravings for the drug.
  • Codeine is often prescribed in the form of syrup to treat the common cough, and "Purple Drank" is a slang term for codeine cough syrup which is combined with Sprite or Mountain Dew and pieces of Jolly Rancher candy for illicit abuse. The concoction takes on a purplish hue, hence the name Purple Drank.
  • Many heroin users are incarcerated, homeless, or not in a location where they can be surveyed to find out about heroin use, so the estimates concerning rates of heroin use in the U.S. are estimated to be much higher than are actually being reported.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation solutions in terms of level of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment center while undergoing rehabilitation services. While this may seem ideal it may not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than a lot of people in rehabilitation require to experience a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue is often hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse rehabilitation is needed. Other than ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they require in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people encounter. In addition, treatment facilities will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some rehab centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to fund a more quality treatment center that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug rehabilitation centers which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the individual's rehabilitation plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind 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 expense of alcohol and drug rehab if other kinds of insurance or self payment are not a choice. If a person doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they could be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but usually only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans generally cover some type of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility which is inside their network of providers and there might be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular drug abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient centers in addition to partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it is clear just how long and individual can remain in the rehabilitation center of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale is a payment assistance possibility provided by numerous alcohol and drug rehab facilities in an effort to help individuals afford rehab where this might not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's price for treatment could be different and another person whose financial situation is better making them more prepared to spend the money for full cost of rehabilitation. Registrars consider additional factors apart from income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost and using the sliding scale.
