Drug Addiction Facts

  • In the 24 hours after using cocaine, an user's risk of a stroke increases almost sevenfold.
  • The disadvantage of an inpatient rehab program is, obviously that clients have to live at the center rather than at home. Although this can be helpful in terms of getting support, patients usually need to take a leave of absence from their jobs and will only see their families on designated visiting days while they are in rehab.
  • It isn't uncommon for individuals to remain in methadone maintenance treatment for more than ten years, an estimated 20% do, and some even endure methadone maintenance for the duration of their lives.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are accessible to anyone that must be safely managed through detoxification services when heavily dependent to alcohol and drugs, or who wants a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also requires mental health services as part of 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 prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the challenges their impairment impose on them. While discovery of this problem can sometimes be difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL along with other assistance services designed for them when substance abuse treatment is required. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the support they require in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug rehab centers have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the demands of Spanish speaking clients, but thankfully there are more and more facilities that can do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Therapy, study data and the like are now very often obtainable in Spanish in both long and short terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehabilitation is also available nationwide.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but people actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can select whichever center they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will usually offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment inside a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals might want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehab program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehabilitation facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation when the facility is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must aid in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions 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 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 rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not a choice. When someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they may be eligible for state insurance, they should seek advice from their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some type of drug rehabilitation service which range from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab center that's within their network of providers and there can be other restrictions for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they prefer and consult with a treatment counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.

Payment Assistance (Check With Facility For Details)

Many drug and alcohol rehabilitation programs offer payment assistance to help clients who might not have enough money to self pay for treatment or whose medical insurance won't provide coverage or total coverage for his or her stay. For example, Sometimes insurance only pays for a short-term facility when in reality a long-term facility will probably be the more appropriate selection. To see what payment assistance might be available, for instance a sliding fee scale, check with the program for particulars.
