Drug Addiction Facts

  • Studies indicate that people who are drug dependent are much more likely than the general population to drink alcohol.
  • Crack cocaine can be purchased in small amounts that are enough for two smoke sessions for an average of $5 to $15, and may be as much as 90 percent pure which is up to six times stronger than powder cocaine that is normally purchased on the street.
  • As of February 1, 2014 Canadian pharmacists will start giving out a formulation of methadone called Methadose, covered under PharmaCare, which is the same dosage but patients will only have to ingest a 10-millilitre dose of the liquid, which is about two teaspoons, instead of 100 millilitres, just under half a cup.

Outpatient

Outpatient solutions are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab services regarding level of care, since the individual can maintain their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to be in a rehab program while receiving treatment services. While this may seem ideal it will not provide the much needed change of surroundings than a lot of people in recovery require to have a successful rehab.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of treatment or will only pay for some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people actually have a much more leverage because they can decide on whichever facility they would like without the restrictions from health insurers that so many people face. In addition, rehab programs will often offer payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation programs will take Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid may possibly cover outpatient and short-term treatment within a limited amount of programs, and in cases like this individuals may want to explore the self pay alternative and drum up any resources they can to fund a more quality rehabilitation program that will produce better results, like a long-term residential drug and alcohol rehab program.

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid may be used to cover the expense of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a choice. If a person doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may be eligible for state insurance, they can talk with their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. The majority of state financed insurance will handle both outpatient and inpatient treatment, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical insurance plans typically cover some form of alcohol and drug treatment service including outpatient treatment to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol rehab centers. Individuals could have to take part in a drug rehab program that's inside their network of providers and there may be other limitations including just how long their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and consult with a rehabilitation counselor to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of certain drug abuse treatment solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient programs and also partial hospitalization are paid for by military insurance, although military members may need pre-authorization in which case they can speak with their VA or Tricare representative. There might be some limitations as to just how long a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you start treatment so that it is clear the length of time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of preference.
