Drug Addiction Facts

  • Regular use of marijuana has been found to promote cancer of the lungs and other parts of the respiratory tract due to the irritants and carcinogens contained in marijuana smoke.
  • There are different types of inpatient treatment facilities such as hospital based, wilderness, faith based 12-step vs. non-12-step, long-term extended care, adult or adolescent and gender.
  • The disadvantage of an inpatient rehab program is, obviously that clients have to live at the center rather than at home. Although this can be helpful in terms of getting support, patients usually need to take a leave of absence from their jobs and will only see their families on designated visiting days while they are in rehab.

In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals in fact have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurance companies that so many men and women encounter. In addition, rehab centers will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehabilitation.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation facilities accept Medicaid if the individual is not able to self pay or present another form of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term rehab in a limited amount of facilities, and in such cases individuals might want to explore the self pay option and come up with up any resources they can to pay for a more quality treatment facility that will produce better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehab facility.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive rehab at drug rehabilitation programs which provide either inpatient or outpatient rehabilitation if the center is in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed physician, who must assist in establishing the individual's treatment strategy. Inpatient solutions are covered through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being similar to any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient rehab being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.
