Drug Addiction Facts

  • Codeine is not as powerful as morphine, which is also found in poppies, yet it is still the most widely used opiate in the world.
  • Physical addiction is characterized by the presence of tolerance (needing more and more of the drug to achieve the same effect).
  • At an inpatient facility, the individual has constant access to qualified doctors, nurses and therapists who can provide medical attention or any other support.

Gays and Lesbians

It is vital that gays and lesbians acquire quality rehab solutions within a rehab setting which can be discreet and with treatment professionals at their disposal who understand the distinctive problems they experience in life. Because drug abuse for gays and lesbians might be triggered because of the problems they face because of their sexual preference, a program that can help them handle these problems and give them the peace of mind they may have lacked prior to arriving in rehabilitation is usually a crucial part of rehabilitation for gay and lesbian clients.

Seniors/Older Adults

Seniors and older adults who struggle with substance abuse might have distinctive obstacles they must conquer when in rehabilitation, which rehabilitation professionals in the program they choose to take part in should be keen of to ensure a complete recovery is achievable. So for seniors and older adults, it is wise to select a rehab which is accustomed to helping seniors and older adults deal with the distinctive life and drug use problems that these clients face that might include a broader spectrum of services including health care and the like.

Medicaid

Certain treatment programs accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present some other form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of centers, and in this instance individuals may choose to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they are able to to fund a more quality rehabilitation facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can seek treatment at drug and alcohol rehab facilities which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the program is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the authorization of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must aid in setting up the individual's rehab strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehabilitation being paid for through Medicare Part B.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the expense of drug rehabilitation if other forms of insurance or self payment are not an option. If someone does not have any private insurance and doesn't yet know if they could be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office in their area to figure out if they are and then fill out an application. The majority of state financed insurance covers both outpatient and inpatient rehabilitation, but typically only within the state which provides the insurance coverage.
