Drug Addiction Facts

  • Inpatient drug/alcohol programs, sometimes are extended for patients who are receiving some benefit from the program but have not yet made enough progress to leave the rehab facility.
  • Individuals with alcoholism or who abuse alcohol are less likely to be tested for HIV and to seek treatment, and are less compliant with treatment regimens than those without alcohol use disorders.
  • As with other opiate narcotics, methadone creates a feeling of well-being and binds to the same receptors in the brain as heroin and other drugs.

Substance Abuse Treatment Services

Substance abuse treatment services are available in several settings along with various rehabilitation lengths and plans to suit the varying needs of clients with any kind of and level of addiction. With both short and long term and both inpatient and residential facilities now being covered by many insurance plans, there is no need to put off receiving substance abuse treatment services for anybody who desires it.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the bottom end of the spectrum of rehab solutions in terms of level of care, because the individual is able to keep their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of having to be in a treatment program while receiving rehab services. Even though this may appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of environment than many people in rehabilitation need to have a productive rehabilitation.

DUI/DWI Offenders

DUI and DWI offenders in many cases are given the option or ordered to treatment as part of sentencing. Sometimes, the offender can select which treatment facility they wish to go to. When successfully completed, DUI and DWI offenders benefit from reduced sentencing options to be able to progress in their lives without having to be penalized any more.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the challenges that their impairment impose on them. While detection of the problem is often hard among the hearing impaired, there are ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is necessary. Besides ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video resources so that deaf and hearing impaired individuals are getting the help they need in drug and alcohol treatment.

Self Payment

Self Payment is needed when a person's insurance won't pay for the entire cost of rehab or will only pay for some of it. In these cases, it may seem like a drawback but individuals actually have a great deal of leverage because they can decide on whichever program they want without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals face. Likewise, rehabilitation facilities will often provide payment assistance for people whose only choice is self payment to enable them to get into rehab.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug treatment facilities which deliver either inpatient or outpatient treatment when the center is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the consent of their Medicare appointed doctor, who must assist in establishing the individual's rehabilitation strategy. Inpatient services are provided through Medicare Part A, with out of pocket costs being exactly like any other kind of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which plan you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some kind of drug rehab service including outpatient rehab to inpatient or residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation facilities. Individuals could have to take part in a drug and alcohol rehabilitation program which is inside their network of providers and there may be other restrictions including just how long their stay in rehabilitation is covered. Individuals can pick a good program they prefer and meet with a rehabilitation counselor to determine if their insurance covers it.
