Drug Addiction Facts

  • When Fentanyl is administered it rapidly crosses the blood-brain barrier, and when this occurs it produced not only pain relief but also produces sedation and varying levels of respiratory depression, as well as nausea, and vomiting in some cases.
  • In 2008 it was estimated that there were 1.9 million past-month cocaine users in the U.S., of which approximately 359,000 were current crack users.
  • Marijuana can affect judgment and decision making, which can lead to risky sexual behavior resulting in exposure to sexually transmitted diseases like HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the lower end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services in terms of level of care, as the individual can preserve their lifestyle in many ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving rehabilitation services. Even though this might appear ideal it may not provide the much needed change of surroundings than lots of people in treatment have to have to have a productive rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a drawback but people in fact have a much more leverage simply because they can choose whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. Likewise, rehabilitation centers will usually provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehab programs accept Medicaid in the event the individual cannot self pay or present another form of private health insurance. Medicaid may only cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in this case individuals may want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehab facility which will get better results, such as a long-term residential drug and alcohol treatment facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehabilitation at drug treatment programs which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with setting up the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being the same as any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being covered through Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug rehabilitation service ranging from outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential drug rehab facilities. Individuals may have to participate in a drug rehabilitation facility that is within their network of providers and there might be other limitations like just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can pick a quality program they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to determine if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the costs of certain drug abuse treatment services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all covered by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations concerning how much time a stay in inpatient drug and alcohol rehab is permitted, and every one of these questions can be answered before you start rehab so that it's clear how long and individual can stay in the rehabilitation program of choice.
