Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methadone is also used to detoxify heroin addicts, not just as a "maintenance option", although studies show that most heroin addicts who detox using Methadone or any other method will eventually return to heroin use.
  • The risk for stroke associated with cocaine use is much higher than with other stroke risk factors, such as diabetes, high blood pressure or smoking due to the fact that cocaine use can result in the constriction of blood vessels, increased heart rate, body temperature and blood pressure, and decreased oxygen supply to the brain.
  • Studies indicate that people who are drug dependent are much more likely than the general population to drink alcohol.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anyone who should be safely managed through detox services when seriously dependent to drugs and/or alcohol, or who wants a broader spectrum of care such as somebody who is dealing with a dual diagnosis so also needs mental health services during their rehabilitation process. You will find 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 substance abuse as a result of 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 drug abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they require in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance won't cover the entire cost of rehabilitation or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a much more leverage because they can choose whichever center they would like without the limitations from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehabilitation programs will usually provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Some treatment programs will take Medicaid if the individual is unable to self pay or present some other form of private medical insurance. Medicaid may possibly pay for outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of programs, and in such cases individuals might want to investigate the self pay option and come up with up any resources they're able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation program which will get better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug treatment program.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek rehabilitation at drug and alcohol treatment centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the program is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must help out with establishing the person's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being just like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being covered through Medicare Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the costs of drug and alcohol treatment if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone has no private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they might be eligible for state insurance, they can check with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which offers the insurance.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service which range from outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehab programs. Individuals could have to participate in an alcohol and drug rehab facility which is within their network of providers and there could be other limitations for example the length of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can select a quality program they prefer and consult with a rehab counselor to find out if their insurance will handle it.
