  • Abuse of fentanyl is not a new occurrence and individuals have been abusing this powerful narcotic since the mid-1970's, however the rate of abuse of the drug has increased in recent years.
  • Methadone withdrawal can last up to 5 or 6 weeks and can be much more painful and uncomfortable than heroin or other opiate withdrawal.

Outpatient

Outpatient services are on the low end of the spectrum of treatment services in terms of level of care, since the individual will be able to maintain their lifestyle in several ways with no commitment of needing to stay in a rehabilitation facility while receiving treatment services. Although this might appear ideal it might not provide the much needed change of surroundings than many individuals in treatment require to have a productive rehabilitation.

ASL or Other Assistance for Hearing Impaired

The hearing impaired are often prone to alcoholism and drug and alcohol use due to the problems that their impairment impose on them. While discovery of the issue is often difficult among the hearing impaired, you can find ASL and other assistance services readily available for them when drug abuse rehab is required. Aside from ASL, such services might include assistive listening equipment and captioned video materials to ensure that deaf and hearing impaired people are obtaining the support they need in drug and alcohol rehabilitation.

Spanish

Not all alcohol and drug treatment centers have the staff or wherewithal to cater to the needs of Spanish speaking clientele, but thankfully there are more and more centers that are able to do so because the need for Spanish services is higher than previously. Counselling, study info and the like are now very often accessible in Spanish in both short and long terms facilities which deliver inpatient or residential rehabilitation and outpatient Spanish treatment is available too around the country.

Self Payment

Self Payment is necessary when someone's insurance isn't going to cover the total cost of treatment or will only cover some of it. In these instances, it may seem like a disadvantage but people really have a much more leverage due to the fact they can decide on whichever program they would like without the limitations from health insurance providers that so many individuals encounter. Likewise, rehabilitation programs will frequently provide payment assistance for people whose only option is self payment to enable them to get into treatment.

Medicaid

Certain rehabilitation centers accept Medicaid in the event the individual is unable to self pay or present some other type of private health care insurance. Medicaid might pay for outpatient and short-term rehabilitation within a limited amount of facilities, and in cases like this individuals may want to investigate the self pay option and drum up any resources they can to pay for a more quality rehab program that will get better results, say for example a long-term residential alcohol and drug rehabilitation center.

Medicare

Medicare recipients can receive treatment at drug and alcohol rehab centers which deliver either inpatient or outpatient rehab if the facility is included in the network of Medicare-participating providers and with the approval of their Medicare appointed physician, who must help in setting up the person's treatment plan. Inpatient services are covered through Medicare Medicare Part A, with up front costs being exactly like any other type of hospital stay, and outpatient treatment being paid for through Medicare Medicare Part B.

Private Health Insurance

Depending on which program you are covered by, all private medical health insurance plans generally cover some sort of alcohol and drug treatment service ranging from outpatient rehabilitation to inpatient or residential drug rehabilitation programs. Individuals may have to participate in a drug and alcohol rehab center that is in their network of providers and there could be other limitations like the amount of time their stay in rehab is covered. Individuals can choose a quality facility they prefer and speak with a rehabilitation specialist to find out if their insurance covers it.

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

Military insurance which includes VA and Tricare does cover the price of certain substance abuse rehabilitation solutions. Detox services, outpatient and inpatient facilities along with partial hospitalization are covered by military insurance, although military members may require pre-authorization in which case they can liaise with their VA or Tricare consultant. There could be some restrictions regarding how long a stay in inpatient alcohol and drug rehab is permitted, and all of these questions will be answered prior to starting rehab so that it is clear how long and individual can stay in the rehab program of choice.

Sliding Fee Scale

A sliding fee scale can be a payment assistance possibility offered by a variety of drug rehab programs in order to help individuals pay for treatment where this might not have been possible initially. By way of example, one client's fee for rehabilitation might be different and lower than someone else whose financial situation is better which makes them more prepared to spend the money for full expense of treatment. Registrars take into consideration variables apart from income including amount of dependents to determine the final cost and using the sliding scale.
