Drug Addiction Facts

  • Crack is the street name given to the freebase form of cocaine that has been processed from the powdered hydrochloride form of the drug using ammonia or baking soda and water, and heated to remove the hydrochloride. It then forms a waxy base which becomes rocks of cocaine, ready to be sold in vials.
  • Each year, thousands of people choke on their own vomit while drunk.
  • No 2 inpatient drug/alcohol treatment programs are quite the same. Most are based on the 12-steps of AAs. There are rules and regulations to ensure everyone is safe and cooperative.

Hospital Inpatient

Hospital inpatient services are available to anybody that should be safely managed through detox services when heavily addicted to drugs, or who requires a better spectrum of care such as someone who is dealing with a dual diagnosis and also needs mental health solutions during their treatment procedure. There are both short-term and long-term hospital inpatient services accessible.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of level of care, as the individual will be able to preserve their lifestyle in lots of ways without the commitment of needing to remain in a rehabilitation center while undergoing rehabilitation services. Although this may seem ideal it will not provide the required change of environment than many individuals in treatment have to have to have a successful rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired can often be predisposed to alcoholism and drug abuse as a result of challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of this issue can often be hard among the hearing impaired, you will find ASL and other assistance services available for them when substance abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services may include assistive listening tools and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired people are getting the support they require in drug rehabilitation.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to pay for the total cost of rehabilitation or will only cover part of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but individuals really have a great deal of leverage due to the fact they can select whichever facility they want without the limitations from health insurance companies that so many individuals face. In addition, treatment centers will often provide payment assistance for individuals whose only choice is self payment to help them get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain treatment centers will take Medicaid if the individual cannot self pay or present any other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might cover outpatient and short-term treatment in a limited amount of centers, and in cases like this individuals may want to explore the self pay option and drum up any resources they're able to to cover a more quality rehab center which will produce better results, like a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation program.

Medicare

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

State Financed Insurance (Other Than Medicaid)

State financed insurance other than Medicaid can be used to cover the costs of alcohol and drug treatment if other kinds of insurance or self payment aren't a possibility. If someone doesn't have any private insurance and doesn't yet know whether they may qualify for state insurance, they can consult their Social Services office within their area to figure out if they are and then apply. Most state financed insurance will take care of both outpatient and inpatient rehab, but typically only in the state which offers the insurance coverage.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private health care insurance plans typically cover some sort of drug and alcohol treatment service including outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug and alcohol treatment programs. Individuals may have to take part in an alcohol and drug treatment facility that is in their network of providers and there might be other limitations for example just how long their stay in treatment is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and meet with a treatment specialist to find out if their insurance will cover it.

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

Military insurance including VA and Tricare does cover the expense of particular substance abuse rehab services. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient centers along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization and in that case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some limitations regarding the length of time a stay in inpatient drug treatment is allowed, and all of these questions will be answered before you begin rehab so that it is clear how much time and individual can remain in the rehabilitation program of preference.
