Drug Addiction Facts

  • Cuyahoga County, Ohio has 161 deaths attributed to heroin overdoses in 2012.
  • Many individuals who are addicted to opiates prefer the high they get from combining methadone and heroin because they claim it drastically increases the euphoric effects of heroin, which in turn has caused many fatal overdoses.
  • Drug addiction rehab programs are available on both an inpatient and outpatient basis. While both types of rehab programs may lead to positive treatment of an addiction, an inpatient program has a few advantages over an outpatient one.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of intensity of care, since the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to be in a rehab facility while receiving treatment services. Even though this might seem perfect it will not provide the much needed change of atmosphere than many people in rehab need to experience a successful rehabilitation.

Persons With Co-Occurring Mental And Substance Abuse Disorders

Persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse issues are what are recognized in the field of drug and alcohol rehab as dual diagnosis clients. These individuals must address both disorders when it's in treatment in order to find resolution simply because one typically exacerbates the other. Fortunately, there are several alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs who can specifically hone in on the issues that persons with co-occurring mental and substance abuse disorders face so that they can not simply become abstinent but mentally secure and also able to lead a much higher quality lifestyle and not feel the need to self medicate with alcohol and drugs.

Gays and Lesbians

It is important that gays and lesbians acquire quality treatment solutions in a rehabilitation setting that's discreet and has rehabilitation professionals available to them who understand the unique challenges that they experience in life. Because drug use for gays and lesbians is oftentimes triggered because of the problems they face because of their sexual preference, a rehab which will help them handle these issues and give them the confidence they may have lacked before arriving in rehabilitation can be a crucial part of treatment for gay and lesbian clients.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and substance abuse due to the problems their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can be difficult among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and also other assistance services intended for them when drug abuse treatment is required. Other than ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening tools and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they need in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary 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 instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage simply because they can decide on whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present another kind of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may wish to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to cover a more quality treatment center which will produce better results, such as a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could qualify for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to determine if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but usually only within the state which provides the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug treatment service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehabilitation facility which is inside their network of providers and there could be other limitations such as the amount of time their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can select a good facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will handle it.
