  • A staggering 60 percent of people who use Ecstasy report withdrawal symptoms, including fatigue, loss of appetite, depressed feelings, and trouble concentrating.
  • Heroin overdoses and overdose deaths are increasing in many areas of the country, due to high heroin purity, heroin at street level which is laced with other opioids such as fentanyl, increasing numbers of heroin abusers initiating use at a younger age, and inexperienced users switching from prescription opioids to heroin.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that should be safely managed through detoxification services when intensely addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health solutions during their treatment process. You'll find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services offered.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often predisposed to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the issue can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Apart from ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired folks are obtaining the help they need in drug and alcohol rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals actually have a much more leverage due to the fact they can select whichever program they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many individuals encounter. In addition, treatment facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab centers will take Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals may wish to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality treatment facility which will get better results, like a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehab at drug rehabilitation facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient treatment if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone doesn't have private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they should check with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some form of drug and alcohol treatment service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could possibly have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab facility which is in their network of providers and there can be other limitations including the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can pick a quality facility they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation specialist to determine if their insurance will handle it.
