Drug Addiction Facts

  • Individuals who smoke five joints per day may be taking in as many cancer-causing chemicals as someone who smokes a full pack of cigarettes every day.
  • The main benefit of inpatient therapy is ready access to the therapeutic community. Patients are involved in a recovery environment in which all are dedicated to breaking the addiction.
  • As of February 1, 2014 Canadian pharmacists will start giving out a formulation of methadone called Methadose, covered under PharmaCare, which is the same dosage but patients will only have to ingest a 10-millilitre dose of the liquid, which is about two teaspoons, instead of 100 millilitres, just under half a cup.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment solutions in terms of intensity of care, because the individual can maintain their lifestyle in many ways without the commitment of having to be in a treatment facility while receiving treatment services. Even if this might appear perfect it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in recovery require to have a productive rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may appear like a disadvantage but people actually have a great deal of leverage because they can select whichever center they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals encounter. In addition, rehab facilities will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehab facilities accept Medicaid when the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private health insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of facilities, and in this instance individuals may want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality treatment program which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at alcohol and drug rehabilitation programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with up front costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment 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 drug rehab if other forms of insurance or self payment aren't an option. If a person has no private insurance and doesn't yet know if they might be eligible for state insurance, they should talk with their Social Services office in their area to ascertain if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance will cover both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only inside the state which offers the insurance plan.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some kind of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehab centers. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug rehab facility which is inside their network of providers and there could be other restrictions for example just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select an excellent program they like and speak with a rehab specialist to find out if their insurance will take care of it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expenses of particular drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs in addition to partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some restrictions concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehabilitation is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehabilitation so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the treatment facility of preference.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance option provided by a number of alcohol and drug treatment facilities in an effort to help individuals pay for rehab where this might not have been doable originally. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation could possibly be different and another person whose finances are better which makes them better able to pay the full price of rehab. Registrars take into consideration additional factors in addition to income including amount of dependents to ascertain the final cost using the sliding scale.
