Drug Addiction Facts

  • Methadone is a synthetic opiate prescription drug which is used as "maintenance" treatment for heroin and other opiate addiction, because it curbs cravings for opiates and other opioid prescription drugs and also prevents withdrawal from these drugs.
  • Some addicts intentionally make the choice to use a form of heroin or cocaine which has been laced with fentanyl, in a desperate search for an increasingly better high.
  • All forms of marijuana contain THC (delta-9-tetrahydrocannabinol) and more than 400 other chemicals besides THC.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services can be obtained in several settings and with different rehab lengths and plans to accommodate the varying demands of clients with any sort of and amount of addiction. With both long and short term and both inpatient and residential centers now being paid by many insurance plans, there is no need to postpone receiving substance abuse treatment services for anyone who wants it.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the low end of the spectrum of rehabilitation services regarding intensity of care, as the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehab center while receiving rehabilitation services. While this may appear perfect it might not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in rehabilitation require to have a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug abuse due to challenges their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is needed. Aside from ASL, such services can sometimes include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials so that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the help they need in drug rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all drug and alcohol treatment programs possess the staff or resources to focus on the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more programs that will do so because the necessity for Spanish services is higher than any other time. Counselling, study information and the like are actually very often accessible in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which provide inpatient or residential treatment and outpatient Spanish rehab is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is required when someone's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for part of it. In these cases, it may appear like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage simply because they can choose whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment centers will frequently provide payment assistance for individuals whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid when the individual is unable to self pay or present any other kind of private health care insurance. Medicaid may only pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation in a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay alternative and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment program that will produce better results, such as a long-term residential drug rehab center.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private health insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug treatment program that is within their network of providers and there could be other restrictions such as the amount of time their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick an excellent program they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation counselor to ascertain if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the costs of particular substance abuse rehab solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are all paid for by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There may be some limitations concerning the length of time a stay in inpatient drug rehab is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before beginning rehab so that it is clear how long and individual can remain in the treatment center of choice.
