Drug Addiction Facts

  • Some inpatient rehabilitation programs provide aftercare support.
  • All stimulants, whether prescription or illicit such as methamphetamine, work by increasing dopamine levels in the brain; dopamine is a brain chemical which has to do with pleasure, movement, and attention. This is what produces a high when abused.
  • Some individuals take withdrawal medications while they live in an inpatient program, but other centers do not allow their patients to use any medications at all.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily addicted to alcohol and drugs, or who needs a broader spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also requires mental health solutions during their rehabilitation procedure. You can find both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of treatment services with regards to intensity of care, since the individual can preserve their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to stay in a rehab facility while receiving treatment services. Even though this might seem ideal it will not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehab require to have a successful rehab.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Individuals with co-occurring mental and drug use problems are what are known in the field of alcohol and drug rehabilitation as dual diagnosis clients. These clients must handle both disorders when it's in rehab to find resolution because one usually exacerbates the other. Luckily, there are numerous alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers who are able to specifically address the problems that persons with co-occurring mental and drug use issues face so that they can not only become abstinent but mentally stable and also able to lead a much better quality lifestyle and not consider it wise to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who battle with drug abuse may have unique challenges they have to overcome while in rehab, which rehabilitation specialists in the facility they opt to take part in must be keen of so that a complete recovery is possible. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to select a rehab which is accustomed to helping seniors and older adults deal with the unique life and drug abuse problems that these clients face which may include a wider spectrum of services including medical treatment and the like.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can be hard among the hearing impaired, you'll find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Aside from ASL, such services can include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in drug treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to pay for the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they want without the restrictions from health insurers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs will take Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they are able to to pay for a more quality rehab program that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug and alcohol treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab when the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in establishing the person's rehab strategy. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might qualify for state insurance, they can seek advice from their Social Services office within their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but generally only within the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some kind of drug and alcohol rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab programs. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center that is inside their network of providers and there might be other restrictions for example the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a good center they like and consult with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of certain substance abuse rehabilitation services. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities in addition to partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions about just how long a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before you begin rehabilitation so that it's clear the length of time and individual can stay in the rehab center of choice.
