Drug Addiction Facts

  • It isn't uncommon for long-term chronic heroin users to experience persistent withdrawal symptoms for several months when coming off of the drug.
  • Serious side effects as a result of methamphetamine use which could be life threatening can include convulsions, dangerously high body temperature, stroke, cardiac arrhythmia, stomach cramps and shaking.
  • When abused, prescription stimulants can increase brain dopamine in a manner that is similar to other drugs of abuse such as methamphetamine, which in turn raises the risk of addiction.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone that should be safely managed through detox services when seriously dependent to 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 during their rehabilitation procedure. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be prone to alcoholism and drug abuse because of the problems their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue can be difficult among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when substance abuse rehabilitation is required. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are obtaining the help they need in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehab or will only cover part of it. In these cases, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehabilitation programs will frequently offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present any other kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in such cases individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to cover a more quality rehab program that will get better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help out with setting up the person's rehab plan. 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 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 treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might qualify for state insurance, they should check with 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 take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but generally only in the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some form of drug and alcohol rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals could possibly have to take part in a drug rehabilitation center which is in their network of providers and there may be other limitations for example the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they like and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance such as VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain substance abuse treatment solutions. Detoxification services, outpatient and inpatient facilities as well as partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There may be some limitations as to how much time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and every one of these questions will be answered before beginning treatment so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehab center of choice.
